Since Boyfriend had to work, I got him back by going thrifting with my mom - and sending him pics of everything I wanted. I passed up a coffee table - which my mom bought - still giving her the side eye on that one - and ended up with a ginormous chest of drawers. I have big plans to paint this baby.
Never mind that it doesn't match the style of anything in my house right now. I have plans to slowly make our house into a "big girl house" over the next year or so. And show you what a wreck it currently is.
|When did my boy get so big?!|
After walking up 486380291 increasingly swaying stairs lugging Peanut and our two burlap sacks and then having visions of the stairs detaching from the platform yes I know I'm crazy we made it to the top. After a little effort we made our way down.
"Woah!......Woah...woah!" Peanut cried at every bump; by the end of the ride I was cracking up. He wanted to go again but it already cost us $14 for the four of us to ride it and Mama's not willing to spend that much money on just a big slide.
We did let them go on a car ride which ended up a bust because they weren't even big enough to see over the padded steering wheel. I couldn't get good pics until they were right beside us and by that point it was too late.
last year and didn't get to, so I made B cough up some cash so we could do it. B hates animals bigger than him (horses, cows, camels, elephants) so I agreed to go and both boys said, "Yeah," when I asked if they wanted to ride. The four of us patiently waited for our turn, but Peanut decided to cling to Daddy instead so only Bug & I went. Bug didn't seem too impressed but I got to check one thing off my bucket list.
|Our only decent family picture. How cute is my pregnant co-worker?|
|He's got the one finger touch down.|
Sunday we went to B's mom's house for her birthday. After food and this family tradition they have called "Wacky Cake" we all walked to a nearby school. I think the adults had just as much fun playing on the toys, throwing footballs and shooting hoops. Or at least I did.
Once we walked back to the house to say goodbye and packed the boys in the car, they threw a fit, "Want go park!" Bug yelled suddenly and Peanut cried bloody murder half the way home. Seriously, we pulled over to make sure he wasn't hurt or sitting on a toy car or anything. He was fine, just a little melodramatic.
