Collin and I splashed in puddles, went the the Speakeasy where they make the most wonderful breakfast all day, then we fed the ducks and took a little walk.
I wasn't ready to come home but I needed to be back before Vaughn's nap was done so he didn't have to wake his daddy who works midnights on Sunday.
I love my Collin days.

The house of ill

Today I had to keep Collin home from his second day of school.
Everyone here has a cold and the tot.lers have fevers.
So the boys spent the day snuggling on the floor infront of the t.v
or in my bed while I read.
When Vaughn was feeling a little better I had him help me with a casserole dinner.
Collin soaked in the tub and Vaughn and I baked.
Chocolate chip banana bread.
I've never made it before. It's done but still too hot.

Today was Collin's first day of S.K and he was pumped.
He couldn't wait to get back there.
It was nice to have some quiet time while Vaughn napped today too.
I actually had a bath and read in silence!
I can't believe Collin is 5 and he looks five.
This time next year I will be sending him to school full time
Vaughn will be going too! Eep!

Birthday Cake
the big two oh.
We celebrated my nephew Ezra's second birthday this weekend. It was a great time as always. Our family and friends have the most adorable children on earth, I kid you not.
They change so much at this age. Looking at the photos from his last birthday I can't believe how much each one of those kids have grown.

A few shots I took on our porch the other day.
Giovanni's eyes captivate me.

I really think he's one of the most beautiful kids I have ever seen. And I don't just say that because he's mine.
I cut his hair off the next day because he's begun pulling it out again. Oh how I wish he wouldn't do that. I miss it already.


Not too much going on here lately.
The kids were in a grump today and I had gone out last night. There was this event downtown where you get to wear your wedding dress ( or bridesmaids ) and have a night out with other ladies and possibly win the grand-prize keep your fingers crossed for me. I definitely drank more than I should have though, not something I am proud of. I'm not young anymore lol. I ended up feeling horrible for a better part of the day.

I did however get the boys room tidied, mostly because of Collin's exceptional helper skills.
When Dada got up I got Collin ready and we ventured out on the bus to Chapters. We picked up a book to go with my nephew's birthday present. Collin is on this insane Toy Story 3 kick so he got a Toy Story 3 book, Vaughn got
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs,
and I got Eat, Pray, Love.
I have about 3 books lined up before I can even get to that one and I'm only a quarter of the way through Host but I know I want to read the book before I ever see the movie. Books are always better. With the exception on Time Travelers Wife the movie for once was pretty on par with the book. I was really pleased with the movie.

The littleuns are off to bed and I am off for some reading! Hopefully in silence ;)
