Yay! It's the Easter Bunny!

In keeping with the theme we took this lovely Easter picture.
 
It looks like we took almost the same exact picture from last year.

I'd love to see the look on the person's face beneath that bunny mask.

It all seemed fine in the beginning.
He was even the tiniest bit happy to see the bunny.

Of course, being behind the fence is much better than being on it's lap.

We hope you're all having a perfectly joyful day!
 
(Which we are, despite what it looks like)
 
We'll be back soon to post some pictures from our day!

Wading through it

IMG_0292

We're still here, just truckin' along.

It's just one of those times for us, 
where life comes at you from every direction.

You know what I mean?

IMG_0284

Things are just whizzing toward you and pulling at you and you're just trying to keep your balance and keep your head above water and you're moving through the mud and the muck and it's d-r-a-g-g-i-n-g at your legs and you think you see solid ground but every time it gets closer it rains again and everything just becomes mud and ohmyGod this post could go on and on.

I know you've had those days or those weeks or those years.

We've had 2 months of this and I'm tired.

It's nothing we can't handle but sometimes it's all just so exhausting.

Being. an. adult. can. be. so. tiring.

On the bright side we live next to O'Neil Regional Park where these lovely pictures were taken on a Saturday morning after a bike ride from our house that took just a few minutes.

I mean, we live next to this place and it smells like nature when you enter.
That sounds weird but the air is clear and kind of sweet and it's spring and there are new fresh grass shoots all soft and whispy and everywhere and it's amazing.

I'm already envisioning overnight camping trips when Peanut gets just a little bit bigger.
Hopefully he'll grow up getting to know these trails (and there are tons of them) and all the green spaces in between and nature will be a part of his everyday life.  This is why I commute the way I do.  

This is awesome.

Now if only life could let up on us just a bit, okay?

Who needs 2 sideburns anyway.

IMG_9122

Peanut really needed a haircut.

I'd been dragging my feet on getting it done because it's usually a 2 person activity.
I needed back up but it just wasn't in the cards so I took him by myself.

IMG_9116

It all started well enough, we didn't even have to use a straight jacket to sit him in the chair.

I bribed him with a juice box which was quite a treat because he usually only has them at birthday parties.  He has no idea what suckers are so those don't really work in getting him to cooperate.
My back-up was a pack of seaweed I had hidden in my bag.

I told the hairdresser that I wanted it trimmed
  but I didn't want her to cut too much off.

30 seconds later she ran the clippers right up the back of his head while my stomach flipped and I tried not to look like something just went terribly wrong.

I imagine my face looked something like this.

Unfortunately the damage was already done and there was nothing to do but even it out.
He did really well with his juice box and a bunch of toys
until she started using the small clippers to trim the edges.  

All of a sudden it was similar to trying to wrestle a cat into a large pool of water.
He was climbing up me and yelling, "Stoppit!  Stoppit!  Pease!  Stoppit!" and generally frightening all the other children.  I tried to look calm and amused while he clawed his way up my face.

Somehow in the struggle a poor defenseless sideburn was wiped from the face of an angry Peanut.

It was actually worse before I pinned him down and she finished it off.

It was like a Vanilla Ice eyebrow line gone wrong.

She apologized and said it would grow in quickly which is such a total lie since this his only his 3rd haircut EVER.

IMG_9137

Peanut, how does it feel to know you are going into the military at such an early age?



IMG_9110

He's high tailing it out of here.

I don't blame you kid, I don't blame you.
