June 25, 2009: Wyatt has taken to wedging as much of his body as he can into the lazy susan. He likes to sit there and chat with me some times while I make dinner.
June 26, 2009: Some of the many baby toys that litter the floor of our house. The green bug below the basket there was one of Wyatt’s favorites and now Augie loves it too.
June 27, 2009: We had a rare warm day that felt like summer through and through and I was determined to pack as much summer fun into the day as I could before it got cold again. We all went swimming at the El Cerrito pool (Augie’s first time!) and then we grilled hot dogs and pork tenderloin for dinner. After our meal, we walked over to the ice cream shop and got cones. Then we sat out on the stoop and goofed off. The only thing that could have made the day better is if the ice cream shop had been a Dairy Queen.
June 28, 2009: Our mantel. I would love it if we had an uncluttered mantel, sparsely decorated with a few carefully chosen photos and knick-knacks, but I’ve finally realized it’s just not meant to be. When you have a crawling baby the mantel becomes the place where you put everything in the whole house that he can’t have. Then I have to add in the fact that Wyatt has his own ideas about how the mantel should be decorated. He is responsible for the big sequin garland that normally goes on the Christmas tree, the Halloween wind sock he made at school and, most bafflingly, the blocks stacked on the decorative arch.
June 29, 2009: The kids are still getting a lot of great play out of the packaging the grill came in.
June 30, 2009: Farmer’s market fruit. I made a crisp out of the peaches and blackberries. The strawberries and raspberries didn’t even make it into the fridge before we’d eaten them all.
July 1, 2009: Augie and I made a trip to Costco for diapers and wipes. We picked up some hamburgers, brats and buns for the 4th while we were there.
