I had a week off from work & it was lovely! No, we didn't do anything really fun or exciting, but it was nice to spend some much needed time at home! I did take quite a few pictures (which was a goal of mine... I noticed I'd been slacking a lot lately, especially taking pictures of Sterling- the kid's growing up too fast!), so here are some of the pictures I took from me Staycation:
Chapter 1- At home
where we spent most of my week off
|I did a LOT of cleaning, & this was taken on the day I was washing all the bedding so please ignore the bare mattress (we're really not that white trash), but I LOVE when they nap together!|
|Roman is obsessed with cars, so we spent a lot of time playing with them... he was particularly proud of this line up he did!|
|Sterling started sitting up on his own, & I was glad I had my photo taking resolution fresh in my mind so that I'd be sure to document it!|
These 2 were playing so cute together that I wanted to get a picture of them together, but this is what I got...
|Roman smiling, Sterling looking away.|
|Then Sterling smiling and Roman looking away.|
|And finally, both of them looking at me like I'm retarded. Gotta love it!|
PS- I love that they look like brother's in this picture!
This is what my kitchen looks like most nights while I'm making dinner- Roman "helping" (but really just making a mess) and Sterling chewing on every cooking utensil in my jar.
|But I wouldn't change any of it! I love when they hang out with me while I cook!|
|& who cares if I have to wash every spoon, EVERY night?! He's having a good time :)|
Chapter 2- Outside
The one fun thing we did do was go to the zoo. Anthon only had a couple jobs since it was a down day, so he got to come too- YAY!
|This was our first time seeing the orangutan exhibit, and it was a big hit, UNTIL....|
|Lovely, right?! & there wasn't a tight seal on the glass, so it started to run out on our side of the glass. Needless to say, we didn't hang out there much longer. Nasty primate!|
|This was the week before the lovely, cool weather hit, so it was pretty toasty! It was still fun to be outside together though... & we did hit up the splash pad, too.|
|I LOVE this picture!! Such handsome boys!|
|It was beautiful & I'm so happy for them! They are 2 of my favorite people & I love them both dearly!|
The Saturday ending my vacation was General Conference. This was the first year in a long time that I was able to watch all the sessions. I usually work on Saturday's & miss the morning and part of the afternoon session because of that. Last April I decided I wasn't going to miss any of the sessions any more, & I'm so glad I didn't!
|Roman did really well with all 4 sessions... & the little printable coloring books helped a lot|
|LOVE this picture, too!! Such sweet guys!|
