I have been a blogging slacker lately, so much so that I have hated to even do a new blog because it's embarrassing how far behind I have gotten. So, I am going to do a quick recap in this post and then (hopefully) will get back to posting in a more timely manner!
Jonathan at the Pegasus Parade. My parade pictures are horrid, so this is all you get. My mother in law and my nephew were supposed to go with us but Bryan's dad had a stroke the day before so, obviously, the parade did not make the agenda (he's doing OK). I would rather have skipped it than brave the crowd by myself, but we actually had a great time. And ate cotton candy--delish!
A couple of pics from the Derby party we attended. It was a great party up until the death of Eight Belles. So sad.
Do you believe that it was actually Bryan's idea to bust out the matching Father's Day shirts from last year? I still love them!
We went to Backyardigans Live on the Saturday before Mother's Day. Jonathan adored it, so much so that he cried when it was over. It was really good but for the fact that the characters' costumes did not have faces, meaning that you saw the faces of the actors. Jonathan did not seem to mind but it took me a bit to become acclimated to it. You were not allowed to take pictures inside, but here is one of us getting ready to leave the house:
My mother's day present (along with a GPS for my car). Thanks for the idea Kim--totally love it and now I am hooked on Etsy, too!
We had Bryan's family over for Mother's Day. I made a pansy cake because pansies are my mother in law's favorite. I also made cream cheese frosting and it was amazing. Horribly bad for you but simply heavenly!
Jonathan went to my parents' house the week before Memorial Day, thus the lack of more recent pictures. He was there for a solid week and my mother still had a hard time with him coming back! I love the fact that she is able to spend so much time with him!
This brings us to the present. Jonathan is back at school this week and finally seems to be over MOST of the two year old stubbornness and temper tantrums. If there is a three year old equivalent of that, please no one tell me as I would prefer to be in denial...
