stinky, sleeping bear toes.
so i was driving home from Richfield & had to pee SO freaking bad.
I thought i was going to explode and there was not a bathroom in sight.
i pulled over in "Browse", drove up a dirt road, saw this sign,
then peed behind a bush.
it was worth it to find this sign.
painting the roses red.
thats all i could think of while painting.
do you know what that's from?
yeah, alice and wonderland. the original, from my childhood. the only one worth remembering.
my dad & i painted their fence.
the good old fashioned manual labor felt refreshing to me.
and here are jax & baby B again!
i love jax's face. & his head looks like a balding old man.
we have the nicest spanish neighbors ever. they will bring over meals or treats to us just for the heck of it sometimes. today they told us we could borrow this little pool thing, probably because they always hear jax turning on the hose and me yelling for him to turn it off.
the mom will usually bring one of her daughters over, and she will speak in spanish, and the daughter will translate to me. She said that she can tell how much the nino loves water & wants him to play in this little pool.
what sweet people!
He loves to help me wash dishes
(yes, by hand)
I think in 10 years, he will change his mind about it.
It takes me longer this way, but at least he is learning some useful life skills.
I'll wash and rinse, then he'll load the dishwasher with them.
I first heard of this place from NieNie
And good old St. G just got one!
I went straight in and ordered a VaNIElla cupcake!
It was SOOO good!
you should go there, asap.
It's expensive , but a little more worth it than 25 main i think, because the cupcakes are a little bigger and there are cooler flavors and you get more frosting. AND there is a cupcake named after NieNie, for crying out loud!
jax is in the summer reading program at the public library.
for every 10 books I read to him, he gets to go choose a prize at the library.
i want my son to learn to appreciate the beauty that can only be found in books.
(so cheesy, i know. but you know its true)
