Come link up with Toddle Along Tuesday! Gain new followers, make new friends, and check out lots of other cool mom blogs! I'm happy to say that I have gained a couple more followers since joining TAT and I love looking at all the other mom blogs I find there!
Today is going to be a hot one! Actually all week we are supposed to be in the 90’s! Yikes! Looks like lots of time at the lake and in the pool. We have never been to the town pool with bug yet, so maybe this week we will venture there. Summer is shaping up to be wonderful!
I hope you all had a wonderful, safe and happy 4th of July filled with family, friends and fun! We were gone the last four days hopping and bopping around town. We visited lots of friends and family, ate lots of food, played in lots of water, and watched lots of fireworks! It was an awesome holiday weekend and I hope yours was just as great!!!!
The water was sooo cold but he loved it!
Fireworks were a huge hit. I thought he would be scared but he clapped and yelled and wanted more!
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm steak and sausage!

This is my first time linking up with Y3W! Hi all!
Two little yellow jackets flew into my house.
They came in through the open screen door on the breeze.
They thought they were going to hang out near my baby who was playing on the floor.
They were sadly mistaken!
They met death by vacuum cleaner!
Come link up!

Days Filled With Love
Tuesday, June 28, 2011
It started at two am this morning. I got up to pee and I hear, " wild thing you make my heart sing you make everything groovy. Wild thing" over and over. I go searching through Owens toy basket looking for that adorable lion his grandpa got for him on Valentines Day. The lion is dancing around under a blanket so he is not hard to spot. Here I am half asleep searching for the off button, there must be an off button, right? I got tired of searching for one, so I just gave the thing a good smack and it shut up. I wander back to bed and get all comfy. I'm about to drift off and I hear, " wild thing you make my heart sing you make everything groovy. Wild thing".
Now I am annoyed. I trudge back to the cute and adorable lion and once again search for the off button. Well, there isn't one so the lion and I go on a hunt for a screwdriver at two am.
I find the screw driver and begin trying to unscrew the singing and dancing lion. The screw will not turn, no matter how hard I try. I am very angry at this point and remind myself to send grandpa a thank you note in the morning for this gift.
Nothing is working to shut this thing off so I toss him in the mud room and shut the door. Then it stops singing.... Finally. After I get back into bed I hear, "wild thing you make my heart sing you make everything groooovy. Wild thing.". I stomp out of bed, slam the door and turn the fan on high.
I won't even yell you what I heard first thing this morning. Luckily Uncle Dan was here today and he was able to unscrew it and save me from the lion.
So that was my morning. Today was funny too. I moved everything off the carpet in the loving room to steam clean the floors. It worked great and the carpet looks awesome and white. Since the floor was wet and the kitchen area was packed with furniture, I decided to go visit great grandparents. I took tons of pictures while visiting and had a great afternoon. I went to check out all of the pictures and realized I accidentally deleted the entire disk. There is a way to save all of the pictures but it's going to take a while. That was crappy. Speaking of crap. You know those white carpets I was just talking about? When I got back home about four hours after leaving, there was a large pile of crap in the middle of my newly shampooed and white living room carpet! Yes. Awesome. I love my dogs.
I guess they don't appreciate a clean house. At least we are all healthy! Here's to a great week!

He can drink from his own sippy cup and loves ice water....and Daddy's Pepsi!
My FAVORITE thing he just started doing is giving kisses. He will open his mouth really wide and lean into you when you ask for a kiss. THE cutest thing EVER! Owen got his little bump removed last Monday and he did an awesome job. Everything went well and you can hardly tell anything was done. Owen was flirting with the nurses and making them laugh before we left the hospital. He loves yelling loudly and making lots of noises, still mostly just ma-ma, da-da. Today he pooped in the bath tub for the first time, which led to him being held over the potty so he finished his poop on the potty at 9 months! TMI? Sorry!
He's awesome and we lovvvvvvvvvve him!
Making baby food today! First on this list- sweet potatoes! Then we have plums, pears, and peaches to purée! The little man turns 9 months today too! Woo hoo! Happy Saturday morning. *Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic!*

I am in LOVE. I literally vaccum every floor, every day. It's FUN...can you believe I just said that? Vaccuming is fun. This thing sucks up so much stuff, I can't believe how dirty these floors were before this baby came into my life. Plus I can run it on my tile in the kitchen and see all the dog hair just diappear. I love it.....and the best part is I no longer feel bad plopping Owen on the floor to play! My floors are clean and that is exciting! *Dyson didn't pay me or ask me to write this post!* I just had to share! Does anyone else have a Dyson that they are in love with?

Every Saturday morning I wake up and lay in bed, playing a little slide-show in my head about what I hope the weekend looks like. There's little birdies chirping and there's pretty colors and smiling faces. *cut to the noise of the scratching record* Instead the reality is poop in the pool and our first projectile vomiting.
Our Saturday morning started out with bug playing on the couch and watching cartoons with Daddy, while I slaved in the kitchen. We had sausage and eggs mixed up and melted with shredded cheese...mmmmmmmm.
Sunday morning came, Father's Day! French Toast for breakfast...yum! We headed up to hubs mom and dads house to spend time with his brother and their three little ones...all under the age of four. We went to Home-Depot and bought Daddy a new grill for his gift. Now I can try lots of new creations on a new grill, I'm so excited. Now I just have to learn how to turn it on without blowing myself up, I don't know WHY but that always freaks me out!
After buying the grill we returned back to the in-laws because bug had not napped at all that day, and it was 3:30. He us usually on his second or third nap by this time, but he was in a good mood! After a nice two hour nap with momma, it was time to play with the screamies...that's what we call the cousins. All of the kids were dressed so nicely that I said, "HEY! We need to get a group shot of them all." So here's the beautiful bench in the back yard by the coy pond where this event took place. It was not a disaster, as one might expect getting four kids to look at the camera at the same time might be. This never happened, they all looked every which way and tried to crawl over top of the bench. I'm sure you'd rather see a picture of the four lovelies and not just a picture of the bench, but that's for a whole other post, why I can't post their faces on this blog. Oiy.....

It's supposed to be a sheep but this picture quality looks horrible!
Also bad quality but this white part of the card is the one bug shook in the bag. I used it on the inside of the card to write the message!
Ta-da! What did you all make?

Have a great weekend and Happy Father's Day to all of the DADS out there! I'll be posting our cards and creations soon! PS-Pinterest is my new obsession!
Here are the steps. It's so easy and keeps them entertained for a good fifteen minutes at least.
First freeze ice cubes with your choice of food coloring added to them.
Next, put a piece of card stock in a zip lock bag with a couple of the colored ice cubes.
Last, hand the baggie over to the artist and let them shake away!
The cubes will slide all around the paper and make beautiful colors. I found that you have to switch up the cubes after a few minutes because once they melt too much it just soaks the paper.
We will make this into part of his Father's Day card which I will share when it's done.
Try it out, it's a big hit with the noise, texture and cold!
