I’m really starting to love dragging the camera around with me on Sundays. Photography is becoming quite an obsession and my Sensational Sunday posts give me lots of practice. So bear with me. :)
Today started odd. I woke up alone. Yes.. ALONE!
What a rare treat!
I decided to take advantage and have some fun in the kitchen.
I know it LOOKS like pudding but you may be surprised by it’s "secret" ingredient. Click here to see how I made this unlikely Chocolate Pudding.
My time alone ended fairly quickly. Little man joined me for breakfast so I made him a simple omelet and some hot chocolate.
After breakfast we were off to our traditional Sunday chore…. LAUNDRY!
I finally finished washing and folding all the 0-6 month hand-me-downs for the baby.
I can’t believe how much we have and a lot of it was actually Ryan’s that I handed down which was handed back.
Before moving to our laundry, Little Man and I decided to have a little fun…
That’s just one of MANY pictures I took of our laundry dive bombs. The rest I put into a short video. You have to click here to heck it out on Poop Butterflies. I went a little geek on it adding audio and doing a sequence of his in air shots.
Once the laundry was started we played with our new LEGO Ninjago characters.
This is a new obsession of the Husbands. He’s getting a bit crazy with the LEGO stuff.
Although I must admit this is fun to play and Little Man seems to really like it.
We finally got dressed and headed outside for the first hike of the season. We went with a friend, her son and new 6 month old baby girl.
It was a PERFECT day for a walk in the woods. Chilly but nice and the boys had a BLAST!
They went nuts in a leaf pile on the trail.
Wanting to be buried.
So we obliged.
About a half hour in we started to notice these really cool rock sculptures.
I snapped shots of each one and plan on posting them on Poop Butterflies tomorrow. They were fun and really interesting. The boys decided they would make one of their own.
The hike was long–about 3 miles and I enjoyed every bit of it.
Towards the end we decided to let the kids play a bit in the mud throwing rocks in the river. I mean, what’s the point of hanging out in the woods if you don’t get at least a little dirty?
After a couple of hours the boys started to lag behind, but overall, they were little troopers.
When we got back it was grilled cheese and some pepper slices for lunch.
The rest of the afternoon and evening we just relaxed.
Notice the laundry basket. The husband came through while we were hiking and folded all the laundry. :)
As the Little Guy was watching Voltron on the iPad, the Husband watched golf on TV and finished folding while I indulged in that new obsession of mine…
Soon it was dinner time and even though I had a turkey breast defrosted we ended up ordering in. I just didn’t have it me to cook. Hubby wanted wings and honestly, I was craving pizza since the hike. I went a little overboard with it but you’ll have this. I’m not going to dwell.
After dinner Little Man took the Lightsaber outside for some fun.
Then he took a bath and we settled in for the night watching Broken Tail: A Tiger’s Last Journey.
It was seriously a fabulous day! I just ended it with a grapefruit and now I’m headed to bed. Both my boys are off tomorrow and I have NO idea what we are going to do.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
