Hogle Zoo

Aiden in the turtle shell. I think this was his favorite part.
He didn't want to leave.

Train ride.

We took advantage of the sunshine yesterday and hauled Aiden to the Zoo. When I say we, I actually mean me and my mom. She was watching him during the week and we met up at the zoo. Aiden had a blast but got a little cranky towards the end. I think he was just tired because I put him in the car to go home and he was asleep before we even left the parking lot. It was pretty cute.

This Old House

If some of you are wondering what I have been up to lately, well, this is it. I have spent countless hours weeding, raking, and planting all Spring long. I know a lot of people are hating this rainy weather but it is just an excuse for me to actually rest- ha! In all seriousness though, it has been an up hill climb and I feel so good that it is almost finished. We still need to finish putting down the rest of the wood chips.

5K Walk/Run

Time it took to walk/run the 5K.

Our team name- love it!

Me and some of the girls that I work with.

Here are some pics from the 5K I did last May- sorry it's so late.

Aiden's New Room

The full effect! Well- almost.

New twin bed. Aiden sleeps like a crazy child so
we have the safety net to keep him from rolling off.

This toybox was built by my father for me and my
brothers when we were younger. It was originally
white and then blue and now it is green. Aiden
loves it. I always catch him sitting in it.

This was my idea. I have been collecting "A's" for
about two years and I finally decided it was time
to put it all together. What do you think?

Peg board totally rocks! I found the file holders
on the container store website.

Since the last post Aiden has transitioned into a "big boy bed" and new room. I have spent numerous hours putting this room together and working on the art that is on the walls. I absoulutely love it! I was so excited for Aiden to see it and when he did he said "WOW!" He is still too young to really grasp what his room is, but some day I think he will grow to love it.
