Sleeping Like Babies

Mom and Dad got a new bedroom set earlier this month, and we are taking full advantage of all of the extra room while Dad's away.  I'm pretty certain that Lily has slept in their new bed more than Dad has.

Grape Playdough

We found ourselves in quite a sticky situation this weekend as we attempted to make homemade kool-aid playdough, but it was nothing a little extra flour couldn't fix.

Ryan and I headed to Sendik's with our classes today for a field trip. We learned the ins and outs of how to run a grocery store, and Mom was lucky enough to join in the fun with my class.  We stayed busy checking out customers, making fresh squeezed orange juice, and talking with George the lobster.  We were even able to sample the homemade chips, drink the orange juice we squeezed, and try a cookie from the bakery which made the field trip even better!

This is how we do books here in our world!

Molly the Motorcycle Dog

Dad finally made it back to Wisconsin this morning so after picking him up at the airport we swung by Kopp's Frozen Custard in Greenfield to celebrate with one of our favorite flavors, Cookies n' Cream.  We had just sat down to eat our ice cream when up pulled a dog riding on a motorcycle, goggles and all!  It turns out that Molly is sort of a local celebrity, having been featured on the news. She willingly posed for pictures like all good celebrities do, and then proceeded to sing us a song. She was great, and definitely made our day!!!

It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Today was an almost perfect day. Almost, only because Daddy got stuck in Memphis due to some plane issues so he won't be home until tomorrow. We decided to make the best of it though and started off our day over at the neighbor's house because Mommy had a dentist appointment to go to. After hanging out there for awhile we headed home to enjoy the sunshine for a bit before heading back over to the neighbor's house to celebrate Charlie turning two. We partied into the early evening hours munching on carrot cake and peanut butter cupcakes. We got to play with lots of friends both new and old.  It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood!!!

I'm staging a comeback of sorts, even though this loss was completely unplanned.  Lily and I were going about our regular routine this evening, which just happened to include a wrestling match, and Lily's fist or head (we're still undecided) got the best of one of my front teeth.  After the initial shock and excitement wore off there was a bit of pain, but it felt more weird for lack of a better term.  The other front tooth is also a bit wiggly so who knows I may catch up before you know it!

Easter 2015

The Easter bunny found us again this year at Grandma Jackie's and left us lots of fun stuff.  My basket was hidden behind the TV, while Lily's was stuffed in the front closet.  We enjoyed mass at Grandma's church and then headed back to Grandma's for the annual Easter egg hunt (which was indoors yet again) and a yummy Easter feast. We always look forward to this day and the good times we have with our family.  Minus the dressing up (which Lily would strongly disagree with me) and lack of sunshine it was a perfect day!!!

Spring Break 2015

This year we have a different Spring Break than Mom so we convinced Titi Nery and Uncle Choo-Choo to head North to take care of their favorite little people for the week.  We filled our week with art projects, ice cream, nature walks, ice cream, bike rides, ice cream, visits to the park, ice cream, shopping, ice cream, dinners out, ice cream, and a movie with popcorn and M&M's.  Our yard is now tastefully decorated with Easter eggs and bird houses.  Our bikes have put on mile after mile, and we've discovered every last inch of the woods behind our house.  We've organized Titi Nery's cell phone and iPad and taught Uncle Choo-Choo the fastest way to get from point A to point B in Mequon.  We are definitely worn out, but would do it all over again in a heartbeat!
