Playing Catch Up

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...

LOVE your necklace!! Looks like you guys have been busy over the past couple of weeks! Do you guys have any plans to come in over the summer? If so we should all meet up and take the kiddos to the pool!

I will allow you to live in denial. ;)

That necklace is cool. What a great gift!

I am bummed you weren't allowed to take pictures of the Backyardigans, that stinks! I am glad you liked the show, sounds like Jonathan loved it.

Your cake look so good.

First and foremost, I hope Bryan's dad is doing well. I'll keep him in my prayers!

I am soooooo jealous that Jonathan got to see the Backyardigans! Lucky little kid! And, hey, he's smiling in all the pictures, so the terrible twos can't be that bad! ;)

Glad you are back. Sounds like you were super busy. I think I would have been freaked out if the Backyardigans did not have the right heads...but I am glad that Jonathan did not seem to mind

Ahh . . . so you, too, have discovered the angst of the blog catch-up! I saw a clip recently of Kate (of Jon and Kate Plus Eight fame) saying, "three is the new two" . . . but I'm sure that's only because there are six of them. Yeah, that's it.

I love the necklace, too! I can't believe you were not allowed to take photos at the Backyardigans show!

Cameron is almost three and I am still facing the temper tantrums and keep hoping it goes away within the next few months...

My little one will be 3 at the end of the summer. He seems to be leaving the terrible twos behind. I think we may be in the clear! Now, if I could just get him potty-trained...

And cute necklace! I already went looking for it on Etsy but I can't find it! Help!

And no need to be emabarassed about getting behind on your blogs. I'm a month behind myself!
