12 Hours

12 Hours

August 28, 2013














Hour by Hour:

  • 8 – Peekaboo in bedsheets + a lazy start to a Saturday
  • 9 – Breakfast sandwiches + Gage offering the blessing
  • 10 – My hair is getting insanely long . . . time for a trim
  • 11 – He’s a little monkey. No really. Climbs everywhere in search of bananas.
  • 12 – Little fingers and tiny toes + a Sonic run for limeades
  • 1 – Sam’s club (the boys go solely for samples, Husby included)
  • 2 – First time to the cinema
  • 3 – Large bucket of popcorn and all
  • 4 – Late lunch/early dinner — served family style
  • 5 – Puzzles are his fave right now
  • 6 – A bubble bath, just because.
  • 7 – Early to bed for the boys + packing for Colorado
  • 8 – Dark chocolate over milk chocolate, hands down.

    looks like a perfect day to me!? how was the little one at the cinema? I have a 14 months old and don’t know if we are ready to take him…any advice?

      I took Beck out after 30 mins into the show (more or less once he was done snacking on the popcorn). My children don’t really care for TV so that’s why we waited until Gage was 3. He made it through the whole movie; but was definitely ready for it to be over.

      Haven’t used ‘maui babe’ lotion before… it’s just my natural tan from the beach/pool. gage’s shoes are from HM this past spring. I’m from Fort Collins and Ryan is from Highlands Ranch (suburb of Denver). I go to Stacey at Trio’s Salon in Fort Collins.
