The Days When It All Works…

I love the days when it all just works. You lay out a plan, you execute the plan, and the kidlets cooperate. Sunday was one of those days for us. We had a birthday party to go to, and despite it being and hour and half drive each way, I decided to just go. It was a blast and I’m so glad we went. (Plus it was for Jacob’s little preschool friend that he just ADORES!) 

They had the party in at this place called The Little Gym (kind of like Gymboree). Great place to have a kid party – they do all the set up/clean up for you! It was so fun – and after that long in the car – there was energy to be burned!

Not quite sure what this crazy weird smile is all about, but he thinks its funny!


They got to lay on the big blow up mat while it was inflating! So fun!



That blur would be Jake mid-maneuver!


High-fiveing the Little Gym employee! So cute! Jake and Hannah both LOVED him!

They were so cute and well-behaved. It was really a perfect day!

Then of course, there are days like today. They start out great, but then slowly take a dive! Workout this morning went great, playing in the beautiful sun was fabulous. Stopped at the store for some items, had lunch and in the process Jake spilled is lemonade all over me and our recent purchases. Then we hit the play park and Hannah ran in front of the swing while Jake came crashing into her. She flew in the air about 3 feet and landed on her side. In the midst of the collision, Jake bit his lip pretty good so blood was a-spewing. Tears flowed, other parents came over to assist (much to Jake’s dismay). Needless to say, it was AWESOME.


Fat lips and bonked sides – it’s all in a day’s work!
