Here is just a little bit of what has been going on lately.
Davis and I went strawberry picking a few weeks ago, the fresh strawberries were delicious and this was such a fun adventure for us. Davis just wandered around talking to anyone who would listen to him (chatty Cathy) and would pick the occassional strawberry to eat while he chatted up his new friends.
I attended my very good friend Jen's baby "sprinkle". Her adorable babysitter wanted to host something special for her, even though this is her 2nd baby, so she threw her a "sprinkle". I made some super yummy sangria and took it to the party, not to toot my own horn or anything but it was pretty darn good. It was very easy too, 1 bottle of sweet white wine (like moscato) and 36 oz. of Fresca, throw in some fresh fruit for added prettiness if you like. I doubled the recipe, so I used 2 bottles of wine and a 2 liter of Fresca and I used frozen fruit I bought at the grocery store because I figured frozen would keep the sangria cooler. I snapped this picture of Jen with the gift I gave her. Cupcake onesies!! I ran across this idea on Pinterest and started making them for all of my friends when they have babies. It is super easy and super cute. Hers are 4 onesies and rolled up inside are a few pairs of baby socks and a few washcloths. There are several variations on making them, some use receiving blankets instead of onesies, but I prefer the onesies and washcloths or onesies and baby socks.
My husband's grandmother's 80th birthday "bash" was over the weekend. We were told to be there by 12:30 p.m., that was wrong (eyeroll, my friends will totally get why I am rolling my eyes at this). Anyways, Jeff was not happy at the person who gave us the wrong time, thankfully we were very close to a place I'd been wanting to visit, the Butterfly House. So we got back in the car and drove a little ways over there. It was okay, but not a place I'd specifically drive all the way out to visit (it is about 30 minutes from where we live). It was a good way to kill time though since the party didn't start till 2:30 p.m. (another eyeroll). Davis always finds someone to latch on to no matter where we go, he found a little girl and decided that he was part of her family. Yes people, I have THAT kid. The one that follows people around, chatting them up, acting like he belongs to them, trying to inform them of everything he knows, finally Jeff had to pick him up and remove him from his new found family, haha.
|This is for Steffany, I used AV mode just for you :o)|
|He is thinking.|
|He discovered the butterfly guide and was insistent we find this particular yellow butterfly, we never did find it.|
|Davis' new family, he followed them around acting as their tour guide for about 5 minutes, I'm pretty sure they just wanted to be left alone. I think it is cute though.|
|Walking to the car with daddy, so sweet.|
