What we've been doing this past week

So this was my last week as a stay at home mom. We tried to make the most of it.

Monday I took Liam to the Dinosaur Museum as promised. He's been asking to go for a couple weeks and each time we passed it on the freeway, I'd tell him it was closed to avoid a tantrum. So when Daddy got home on Monday Liam was so excited to report that the Dinosaur Museum was open today! It took me most of the day to figure out why he was saying that and then I remember and cracked up the remaining times he repeated it. Too funny.

Tuesday Liam went to play with a friend so I could attend the temple. I finally took her up on her month old offer and she was very enthusiastic that I did. (Thank you, Paula!) I had a wonderful experience and had my photo taken to keep that memory close. Liam had SO much fun with our friends and resisted leaving to a great extent! We ate some lunch then went on a walk in the sunshine.

Wednesday I had to run some errands and Liam was a pretty good sport about it. We stopped at Sweet Tomatoes for lunch and I got a darling photo of Liam enjoying his juice.

Thursday we ran more errands then in the afternoon we went over to Joslyn's to play in the water. They took breaks to race each other in the grass and also ride on some of her toys. I couldn't resist taking this photo of him manning the pink bug.

Friday we went to take books back to the library and then to feed the ducks. We also worked on some perler bead projects and I got a lot of house work done. Daddy came home early and took us up the canyon to try some fishing. Liam was a good sport, but neither of them caught anything. It was nice to be outside and enjoy the sunshine though!

Today we worked in the garden all day. I got my new peony plant put into the front yard and also planted some seeds my mom brought me from her flower garden last fall. Hopefully both turn into beautiful plants with lots of color!

Ian and Uncle Tyler got a load of bio-compost last week for our garden expansion and then went and got a load of top soil today. They also rented a roto-tiller and got the whole garden looking level and perfect. Liam tried his best to help (ie. get in the way). After some naps, Liam and I planted the sugar snap peas and the lettuce seeds. We'll be transplanting all these little babies next weekend.

I'll bet your garden will be awesome! We love the dinosaur museum too. I'm glad you got the chance to go. And LOL at Liam in the pink Bug. You can blackmail him with that someday! ;)

Ok, so where do you feed the ducks? I have been wanting to do that with my kids forever. We used to always feed the ducks in Indiana, but I haven't found a place here.

I started my seeds early April so they were getting really root bound. I put them in the garden last night. Normally I wouldn't plant this early (frost in June is normal around here) but I can't stand the suspense! I'm ready for the green!

Sweet Tomatoes sounds yummy. Now my tummy is growling!
