So it been a busy few weeks. I had intended to get this post out last night but once again I had computer troubles. So here are the last two weeks (a total of 49 pictures!).
Here’s our week. . .
He is into everything and wants to be under, on top of, or over most furniture. He’s chasing a ball here.
Almost there . . .
We were on vacation to Illinois this week. Our first stop was Springfield.
This was a silent moment during our stay at my in-laws. It was just Grandma, Jonas, and I and the light was perfect.
And this guy was eating so the moment felt perfect.
These are Mark’s cousins who I have gotten to know well. I consider them blood relatives. I really like this picture.
Of course, everyone want to hold this guy.
The birthday boy. Grandpa turned 90 the day before Memorial Day.
It looks like he is crowd-surfing. Everyone was trying to get him to clap and everyone wanted him.
The next stop was Southern Illinois to visit my family. We had a picnic.
And it wouldn’t be Memorial Day without some patriotic gear.
This is not Jonas, by the way. Its his cousin Ada Grace who happens to share my birthday.
Brooks got to drink soda from a can. It was apparently a really big deal for him because he told me he feels like an adult now.
Silas told me, “I love soda in a can Mom.”
Coffee on the porch in the morning. This was taken about 7am and everyone was awake.
Good morning Grandpa.
Waiting for breakfast.
Grandma had amazing breakfasts for the two mornings we were there. They were usually ready by 7:00! I wish I was an early bird.
My boys got so much love from everyone.
And they did a lot of fishing.
They also did a fair amount of riding on the ranger.
Everyone needs boots in the country.
We love this place.
The next stop was my parents’. One night we grilled on top of the fire pit.
They turned out way better than expected.
I forgot to take out my camera for the rest of the trip. So the only pictures remaining are from my phone.
Dinner on Monday night after our trip. I needed something easy.
Bread with apricot jam, goat cheese, rosemary, and salt is amazing!
A rainy day on the porch.
Trying to capture more pictures of me with my kids. Silas gets photo credit and my hair looks gray.
We have so much lettuce!
One day was so crazy that I didn’t drink any caffeine until 4pm.
Silas was Picasso for an afternoon.
Working on a project while waiting.
Blueberry Pancakes! Gwyneth knows her pancakes.
He climbed in on his own. He LOVES the water.
Refridgerator dump for dinner. LOTS! of dill.
Transportation Museum St.Louis.
Returning from vacation meant unpacking, laundry, and cranky kids.
We fit all three in the Buick for 10 days. I think Mark was proud.
See you next week!
