Random Videos From This Month

As the title says, here are some random videos from this month.

For some reason the tile in our backyard has lifted.  We will probably ignore this problem and hope it goes away.

Here we are scraping paint.  Mostly I was messing around.

Here we are before my mom and I left for the bunco party and my dad watched Emmett.

Fun Fun Fun!

July 2015

July is almost over and I swear we were just celebrating the 4th!  What happened? Where did it go?
Here in CA we have had some weird weather.  It has been extremely humid and it has even rained a few days.  Usually by now in the summer it is really hot and dry.  We are happy to get the rain!

I find myself feeling a little lost every time Monday rolls around.  I guess I like to feel there is a schedule and I like to feel like I am getting things done.  Being a stay at home mom can be a little monotonous once in a while and also isolating.  Anyways I guess I am still adjusting.

 A week ago Emmett got to finally play in some rain.  It was warm enough to splash around for a while and get wet.  He loved it!
When did he get this big?
 We have been working on the bathroom and by using the word we I mainly mean Grant.

Its already looking 100% better!

 Sunday was a friends 5th birthday party.  Madison is so super cute!  She looks like a live doll.
 Then when they put a wig on her I am sure Emmett was confused, like this doll is alive!

Happy Birthday Kaylee! We had lots of fun!

Pool Lunch Party

Our friend Sherry had us over for a pool party on Friday.  We had the best time!  Sherry and Mike have a turtle and a beautiful backyard.  Emmett was very impressed!

 Emmett loves turtles, so to see a real live one was a special treat.
He sleeps with a stuffed turtle every night.

 Emmett was given special cookies that he loved.
They were so cute.

Thank you Sherry for such a fun day!

Splash Pad

Yesterday morning we went to a local Splash Pad park.  It was really cool.  There was a regular park area and then there was a water park where water shot out of the ground and buckets dumped.  The only problem was how crowded it was.  I guess its cause its summer here and all the moms are looking for something to do, but it was so crowded that Emmett was a little overwhelmed and it was kinda hard to enjoy and keep track of what was going on.  I would have thought 10 am on a Friday it wouldn't be so bad, but the life guard said it was like that everyday.  That a better time to go is around 3pm or after.  Who would have thought.

Anyways we got out of the house, tired something new and saw some friends so it was worth it.

This smiling and laughing kept turning into crazy screaming lol.

Here is a link to the splash pad

The Park and Swimming

Yesterday we had a fun time at the park and swimming.  Lacey and the kids met us at the big castle park and after that we went back to our house to swim.  It was so hot at the park it was hard to really be in the sun.  Big hats and lots of sun block helped.
Emmett missed his afternoon nap from all of the excitement so he ended up falling asleep at 5pm and sleeping through the whole night dirty and in his day time clothes lol.  Oh well, I didn't want to wake him up.

 Emmett never wants to sit! He was ready to run the whole time.
 I am busy chewing that candy! lol!

Free Weekend

Last weekend my mom and dad watched Emmett.  My mom took him Friday night and brought him back on Sunday noon.  It was his first time away without me or Grant.  We spent the weekend scraping paint in our bathroom.  It was not a fun job haha.  We scraped paint all day Saturday until dinner time when we decided to go out.

We look like giants!  Anyways must be the angle of the camera hahaha.
I was able to wear my new dress and we went to PF Changs where we had a gift certificate, so it was almost a free dinner out!

It was very weird to go to dinner and just jump in the car and take off and jump in the car and come home.  No hauling strollers and screaming and bags.  When we got home I said this is what it was like before we had Emmett.  Very quiet and lots of time to get things done.  Before we had Emmett I worked full time and still had way more time to do anything I wanted compared to now.

The good thing is even though we had some time to get some stuff done I missed Emmett's little face and crazy energy!

4th of July 2015

For the 4th of July we went up to my parent's house and had a really fun weekend.
We started with the local parade.  Emmett was super tired because he decided to choose this weekend to cry and not sleep or eat!  The night before the parade he was up till 10 pm screaming and woke up that morning at 5am screaming.  So there you go!  Some things are just not in your control lol.

We went to the parade and he fell asleep just before it started, but as soon as he heard all the excitement he was up and clapping.  There was one moment when he got so excited he stood in his stroller clapping and screaming yay! He looked like he would burst with excitement which made it worth the whole endeavor.

After the parade we had lunch, then went swimming and then dinner and back out to watch the fireworks.

Lately we have been pretty busy.  Doing what, I am not sure lol.  I just find that time is flying by. 

I am going to try to blog more often because I know I will want to look back some day and see when Emmett was little and what we were up to.

Right now I am working on the art for NHRA reunion.
I am taking care of Emmett (who seems to be entering a stage of resistance to everything)
This is how the day goes: Do you want to eat ? NO
Do you want to sleep? No
DO you want to play? No not with my toys
Do you want to brush teeth ? No
 Its not really that bad, but I do find he always resists at first and then when I say you do it we can at least get through a few tasks LOL.

In TV we are really liking the bachelorette
(mostly just to laugh and make fun of everyone.  Here is a tip don't go on reality tv if you don't want people to make fun of you)

If you watch this show and really want to laugh read this blog

I am also really liking this new show called Astronauts wives

We also have been swimming a lot and trying to make it through the humidity!
This is the most humid summer ever!

Have you ever thought of a project that you want to do for a long time?  Then suddenly one day you just decide I have to do this.  Well our upstairs bathroom is a disaster area.   From afar you might think its not that bad but when you look up close its definately not good!  The bathroom was originally painted with oil paint.  The last people who lived here painted over that with normal paint and of course that did not adhere right so it was pealing.  The other day when I was in there I pulled on the paint and it came off in a giant sheet!  So I started pealing...

Turns out we will have to peal all of that paint off and treat the walls and then primer and then paint again.  One thing leads to another because to properly remove the paint we have to remove the toilet and once we do that we might as well get a new one.  And we don't have a big budget to get all of this done!  Here is what it looks like so far lol...

The plan is to paint it a bright white color, get a new mirror that has a nice white frame. We will stain the cupboard a grey color.  Sadly the top has to stay cause we don't have the funds.  We will replace the toilet and the floor with some tile.  I also plan to get a tall storage cabinet from ikea for the corner.

We will see how long this takes.
