Easter Fun (late post)!

Sorry for the late post. Easter was a very fun time here. My brother and his family came down from Washington & hung out for the weekend. Before they got here, we some activities to do before hand:

Like, see the Easter bunny.

Practice our Easter egg hunting (which he was great at).

Lars loved the rooster the best. He have him a high five, and kept playing with his eye ball.

Fire trucks were there to hang around and touch & climb on.

When my brother got in town, we caught up, played, ate some yummy pizza & then got down to business: dyeing Easter eggs for the Easter bunny to hid.

The next morning, everyone was up bright and early for baskets & egg hunting. All the cousins had a blast!

It was great seeing everyone. I made lasagna for dinner (prego brain forgot to take pictures). It was really good though, so that's what's important.

How was everyone's Easter?

Another Two Feet

The reason why I haven't posted in a while is because I haven't had any energy to do so (or anything else for the matter). 

I am now 13 weeks and have been not feeling very well & no energy. The last week, or so, I've been feeling better! I think that part of the pregnancy may be going away (knock in wood).

I plan to start running & working out again, as soon as Easter is over. Just like last time, my cravings are as much junk food as possible. I can't wait to have pizza tomorrow! I really need to go to Red Robin and have their end fries. I'm also really into smoothies lately (Lars loves them too!). For some reason, I think I'm having a girl. 

How many kids do you have? How do you fit in your workouts with kids?

Nimbus Fish Hatchery

I love it when I'm able to get out o the house with the whole family and make a complete morning of fun and entertainment. Usually we have a partial morning and others are filled with errands (and usually a stop off at the park). 

We finally were able to make it to the local fish hatchery. The fish were jumping like crazy and wanted to eat all the food we had. You can buy fish pellets there and feed them. 

I don't think Lars completely understood what was jumping out of the water. It was a great morning. We had a snack that we picked up and then went to lunch .

Lars was crashed out when he got home. He was really ready for his nap. He had a great time though!

Do you have anything like a fish hatchery near you? Anything fun, like this, that you like to do (even without kids)?

Too Many Squats?

I think I do a lot of squats when my son does them with me. Usually he doesn't hang on to anything. I think it's so cute. Lately I've been doing jumping jacks and all types of crunches with him too. I can't wait until he has the coordination to do these with me.

He also loves to take a running start and land head first into the pillows I have blocking the brick around out fire place. He's such a silly boy.

Soon, I will be doing mountain climbers and weights in front of him. Right now, it's a little difficult with how much he wants my attention.

Do you guys workout with your little ones awake? How do they handle it? Do they try to copy you?

Making it Myself

You followers with little ones, have you ever seen those yogurt melts they sell in stores? They are so expensive! I've never bought them, but I don't think you get that many for the money you pay for these. 

I found a super easy recipe to make my own! Ok, get a piece of paper, because it's a lot to take in: drop some yogurt on a cookie tray (I used a silicone mat) and freeze. After they are frozen (takes just a few hours), peel them off and put them in a baggie. That's it! Lars loves these!!!

I also love making banana splits (minus the ice cream). Sometimes it's too cold for ice cream (especially in the winter). I love using bananas (of course), pb, chocolate syrup, almonds and I would have loved to use maraschino cherries, but I'm out. I was very sad when I saw I was out. It was put on the list immediately. 

Do you make your own kids' treats? What do you enjoy for dessert?

So much Love!

I love being a stay at home mom! Seeing this little man grow, change and learn every single day! I plan things to do every day and we also have a lot of laid back days where we just play whatever he wants to play.

I think this picture shows how much he truly loves me! I love how he comes up to me randomly throughout the day and plants a huge, wet kiss on me. Or how comes out of his room, so I will follow him back and play with him. Of course, he is the best little one year old out there. I wouldn't change my days for anything. I'm the luckiest woman out there!! I have the 2 perfect valentines!!

Hope you guys had a good Valentine's Day. What did you do?

There's a First Time for Everything

I always have toe nail polish on. My big toe has been giving me a lot of pain and I have no idea why. When I finally took off my nail polish I saw a lot of black and a lot of discoloration!

Since my nail polish stays (nearly) perfect for a couple months (I trim my nails with the polish on), I had no idea how bad it was. I finally took off the polish saw the black  and was concerned. I still had a little pain, but not like it was a month ago. When I started clipping my nails, half of my big toe nail come off!! This is the first time this has happened to me.. 

I tried painting my toes (ready for Valentine's Day), but the polish doesn't stick too great to the skin and has been slowly coming off. 

When did you loose your first toe nail?
