Today we had a nice relaxing day. He didn’t do to much. We got Kaden’s swing ready outside and he got in the for a bit and we went to the store and got a volleyball/badminton all in one kit for $10 which I am really excited to try out tomorrow. It was on sale and what a sale it was!!
The best part of the day was that there was a beautiful sunshower this evening. It was a perfect way to end today since today is the first day of summer!! It was SO bright and beautiful outside during it and it ended in a VERY bright rainbow! So beautiful!! Could this have some kind of meaning behind it? Is there a great summer ahead in our future?? :) I thought that it was pretty cool!
Yesterday we went to the beach. It was Kaden’s first time there so we were really excited. The beach we went to was about 30 minutes from our house so it was a really nice drive in the sun. I love summer drives in the sun with the windows down and the music up. One of my favourite things about summer.
When we got to the beach we pulled out our beach umbrella to give Kaden some shade. It was soo windy that we had a hard time getting it to stay put but Trevor rigged it up so that if he sat against it it would stay in the ground. haha.
We brought the bumbo and some sand toys and other random toys for Kaden to play with and he really seemed to enjoy himself. We couldn’t go in the water because it was way to cold. We had some snacks, fed some seagulls, and just enjoyed each others company. It was great :)
Today we got Kaden a swing! We have a little swing set that the previous owners left when they sold the house but it is for bigger kids. The swing that we bought for Kaden hooks right onto it so that will be fun to try out tomorrow. We didn’t really do a whole lot today. Trevor had a doctors appointment earlier this morning so we all went to that and then we went to a near by veggie stand to get some veggies and fruit to make homemade baby food for Kaden! YUM! He loves his carrots and pears. :)
So yesterday.. Pretty uneventful. BUT we got BUNK BEDS!!
We didn’t end up doing anything fun yesterday really. The sun came out a few times but it was for the most part, cool. We wanted to go to the beach but decided to hold off until a hotter day. Today it much nicer out so when Kaden gets up from his first nap we are headed to the beach! I can’t wait!
So yesterday, like I said, was pretty uneventful. Trevor and I went to the store and got a few things and then he went to his sisters to help her take down the bunk beds that she is giving us. Although the day was kind of lame and boring, getting bunk beds was SO exciting. I remember when I was a kid I always wanted them. I was an only child until my step siblings came along but they didn’t live with us and I was 12 at that point anyway so having bunk beds never happened for me so I am SO excited to have them now. Haha This just makes my want for another boy that much stronger! First thing I said to Trevor when he said he was bringing them home last night was, “Do you wanna sleep in them tonight?” haha.
Unfortunately that wasn’t an option because..
..this is what the room STILL looks like today.
Haha So needless to say, we weren’t sleeping in them last night. lol
Here is Trevor wearing Kaden in the Ergo for the first time yesterday while we went into Shoppers Drug Mart.. He was unsure at first but Kaden loved it so Trevor did too. So cute! :) I love my boys. <3.
So we had so much fun yesterday that I was too tired to blog about it when we got home last night! haha We came home and I was going to do some writing but all I wanted to do was go to bed.
We didn’t do a whole lot during the day yesterday. We went into town to run a few errands which I always enjoy doing. I love just being out and about with my family all together just doing normal, everyday things. Nothing terribly exciting, just me and my family. Kaden is big enough now that when we go to Walmart and places like that, he can sit in a shopping cart. It is SO adorable to see. He loves to look around and grab at things. Adorable :)
Last night Trevor’s mom came over to watch Kaden while Trevor and I went on a much needed date! :) We went to see The Purge. It was soo nice to get out. I don’t like leaving Kaden but I really needed a few hours to spend alone with Trev and it was great. He have only been out twice I believe without Kaden since he’s been born. Last night was the perfect refresher. The movie was awesome too and very creepy!!
Oh and I also forgot to mention that yesterday for supper Kaden tried chicken for the first time! We mixed it with sweet potato and he really didn’t know what to think. I can’t blame him. Pureed chicken? Ahh I had a hard time getting myself to test it out to see if it was warm enough for him. lol We are going to try it again tonight! :)
The sun is shinning this morning and I think we are going to go to the beach! I can’t wait :)
On our way to the movie! I love spending time with him:)
Dressed just like Daddy! These pants didn’t stay on him long. They are SO tight with his fluffy butt from his cloth diaper. haha
Ready to go to town!! Poor Memphis looks like she’s unsure as to whether she’s allowed in the picture or not. lol
SO, as it always goes, today is Trevor’s first official day of vacation (it’s Monday but he had the weekend off too which was beautiful and sunny) and guess what??? IT’S RAINY OUT!! Is it really that big of a surprise? No. It’s really not. Why is that always the way? Haha. I guess it is suppose to warm up and the weather network is calling for sun with variable cloudiness later today, so although I have very little faith in the weather network, as it’s disappointed one to many times, I am really hoping it is right today.
I am SO excited to have Trevor home for the week. I know it is going to fly by so I am going to sit down each evening and blog about the day so that I can take a minute to sit and reflect on the time and fun we’ve had. It’s unbelievable to me how fast time can go by with a baby. Every week is just a blur and I think that if I sit down and blog for a bit each night, then maybe it will stick with me a bit longer. :)
Yesterday was Father’s Day, and Trevor’s first Father’s Day! We spent the day relaxing for the most part, and then we also went to visit his Grampy in the hospital. He is 91 years old! Wow! He was really happy to see us and I don’t think that he wanted us to leave when it was time to go. He’s not sick but he is getting very weak and his wife can’t look after him at home so he is in the hospital getting some care after he had a rough few days a few weeks ago. He told us that she was such a great wife and his number 1 and he said it with tears in his eyes. I hope that Trevor and I are still that way when we are his Grampy’s age. I think that is so amazing.
I’ll be back with a blog all about our day tonight! :)
I made this with Kaden and posted it on Trevor’s Facebook yesterday morning. So cute! Almost looks like he understand what he’s doing! :)
Watching Daddy open his gifts.
Ooo! And as I am finishing this up the sun is coming out!! WOO HOO!!! :D
Ahh! It’s been way to long since I posted on here. I have good intentions. I really do. Pretty much every day I say I need to do a blog post but things just keep getting in the way. Man, oh man life is busy. Kaden is now SIX months old!! SIX! I can not believe it. It’s bitter sweet because I love to see him grow and learn new things but I never want to think of a time when he is not my baby. Oh but boy is he EVER learning. He can now roll from back to belly, he sleeps through the night, he can sit up unassisted. Where has the time gone? It’s unbelievable.
Trevor is on vacation starting this Saturday for 9 whole days!! I am SOO excited! We have plans to spend a lot of time outside, go swimming, go to the zoo, and do lots of visiting. It will be wonderful to have us together for 9 full days. I can’t wait to take Kaden to the zoo. He is becoming to fun and playful. I really think he will get a kick out of it. He just LOVES to look at Memphis and Kitty. :)
Kaden and his bunny. He sleeps with him every night! :)
Such a little boy. <3
He did so good at the doctor! He had to get two needles and he barely flinched! :)
