Been Up To

Natalie's naps are becoming a little hit and miss (this causes me physical and emotional pain). So the days can be long and often tantrum-filled, but we've been finding some things to keep us busy and smiling.
Attempting to grow some green beans in a Sesame Street greenhouse...will they make it? Only time will tell.
Look at our poor old dining room chairs that have been banished to the hot outdoors where their fate is sealed: discoloration, stains, rips, and sun bleached cushions. I'll have to post pictures sometime of our new dining room table. We love it. And pictured...having a bike wash in the backyard:
Made it over to the children's museum. Enjoyed ourselves immensely, but sometimes at places like this all I do is sit and try to figure out how I would handle it with 3 kids. Even if one was strapped to me.
Oh they loved this.
That's the way Natalie, get a couple different kinds of ice cream, you never know what kind of a mood you will be in. Also featuring your friendly neighborhood grocery man:
Making...rock faces I guess??? They loved it anyway.

Oh Jess, you will make it with 3 kids! your are super mama!! I want to take my kids to that museum, it looks really fun. Yes I will be at the reunion. I think it is going to crazy chaos, but it will be fun. My husband will just be chasing my kids around the whole time {not to happy about the location if you can't tell :} But it will be fun to see everyone!

I love children's museums!! They are the best! It sounds overwhelming to have three! I know!! But it comes in strides. I remember when John was born I was just thanking my lucky stars he didn't come out crawling. He was contained for a long time and we got through it. It's now a whole lot easier!! You'll get the hang of it sooner than you think.

We love our local children's museum as well. I haven't attempted it with three yet. I'm still learning how to do the day to day tasks with three. I have to say it is not as hard as I thought it would be. I just don't have my me time in the evenings right now. I hope to get it back in the next few months as Thomas gets older.

So cute. And your father's day post was soooo touching, and so true about Nate.

Oooh I thought or sure Natalie would nap a little longer. It would have been nice for the new baby that's for sure. I can't wait to see pictures of you at the children's museum with that baby strapped to you with that big ol' mummy wrapper thing. You'll rock it.

I'm still trying to figure out the three children thing. It's doable, but definitely a challenge. I just went to a children's museum and yes, my back was sore from having Nathan strapped to me all day and there were time's I didn't quite know where my children were, but we all survived and even had a fun time. So, it was worth it. Who am I kidding Jess, you will be awesome and master this long before I do!

You are the cutest mom ever. I learn so many things that I can do a better job at with my own kids by your blog and being your friend. What a neat Children's Museum.
