sometimes we drive across town and go to the fancy neighborhood with the fancy park. i like to pretend we live there, mclain likes the new and different adventure and aplin sleeps right through it.
"i run so fast."
"tootie, come on, let's go play."
this neighborhood also has a splash pad (the only splash pad in lubbock), so i imagine we will be visiting more when the weather gets hot.hot.hot. until then, can someone water and mow my pretend grass?
my MOPS group had an easter egg hunt last weekend. unfortunately, we got there late, so mclain only got two eggs. lucky for me, he's still too young to know he's suppose to be mad a me.
matt was at a golf tournament, so i was chasing mclain around with aplin on my hip, trying not to drop my camera and keeping mclain from falling in the water. you'll be happy to hear, i didn't drop my camera. mclain didn't fall in the water. aplin stayed on my hip. and mclain was completely satisfied with two easter eggs...i'm going to call that a success.
~ the hunt was in the backyard of the betenbough main office. it's like we weren't even in lubbock! ~
~ he was telling the easter bunny all about his easter eggs. he was so proud of his two eggs! ~
~ i could not stop laughing when i saw this picture! ~
~ after my pitiful attempt to take a picture of us, someone was nice enough to offer to take our picture. ~
it's been 4 weeks since we cut mclain's hair. it's taken this long for my mama heart to stop hurting and finally accept his big boy haircut. he looks so grown and so handsome...i may be a little partial.
there were several things that made this haircut a successful experience...
-and my beauty school dropout skills
he received a lot of compliments on his new haircut but because i was still so sad about his big boy status, i may not have been very gracious to those compliments. if you're reading this and thinking, "yeah, she wasn't very nice about it". i'm so sorry. i wasn't emotionally prepared for your compliments. please forgive me.
hugs and kisses~s.
also, because i love this picture so much. our sweet friend Taryn took this pic. we love you, Nonny.
