It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted an Insta-Friday, but I’d like to link up with Jeanette at Life Rearranged and share the past few weeks with ya. I decided to try the Instagram Plus app instead of my normal CameraBag app, so these pictures show a few edited from both.
Parker LOVES the black bean Couscous that Target sells in their deli section. So, I thought we’d try to make our own instead. It turned out great, and it was a nice simple vegetarian dinner. Parker and Mason both devoured it!
I love messy baby faces. And Mason has been giving me plenty of them lately, and making my camera phone, and anyone within view distance happy, too. Here he is, devouring his beloved raspberries and avocado.
Aunt Jenna got Parker a jumbo Mr. Potato head for Christmas with lots of little potato heads inside. Parker, Mason, and I love dumping the entire thing on the floor, and assembling our versions, and having lots of giggles along the way.
We enjoyed the fog and rainy overcast weather with a nice wagon ride around our two mile loop. Parker put his new rain boots to good use, and enjoyed making splashes in rain puddles along the way.
Mason is really starting to love the play area at the mall now. It’s so great to be able to bring both boys, and have them play now! We just have to make sure to go on off peak times, so they’re not trampled by the kids that are way too big to be in there in the first place.
Seriously, is this not the cutest “I love my brother” photo, ever? I just love those boys to death!
Mason and Harper were being such cutie patooties, at Monkey Joes. While Jen and I were keeping an eye on the older kiddos, they were taking turns swapping a baby doll, and goobering on their toes. How. Lovely.
We went a birthday party that our neighbors invited us to. They’re Indian and their daughter turned 1. It was quite the shin-dig. White linen table clothes, those fancy bows on the back of chairs, balloons galore. Parker had a blast with getting his face painted, watching a magician, balloonist, and CAKE. Heaven forbid we forget the cake. Something we learned about parties from people who come from this part of the world? They like to party LATE. Mason usually goes to bed at 7:30, and they didn’t even cut the “I must have a slice of cake or I’ll die” cake (as said by Parker) until 9pm! The party didn’t end until 11pm, poor kids! We had a great time, but of course, we weren’t able to avert the crisis meltdown when we got home. Lesson learned.
I’m reminiscing the beautiful weather we had last week, and this wonderful wagon ride we took. Now it’s the normal chilly weather, and I’m not a fan one bit. I’m a summer girl at heart, and I’m looking forward to when it’ll be warm again!
Looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend!
