I've been lacking posts lately because our computer quit.
So what's been happening around here....
I took Reese to the fair. She loved it. We had to go to the petting zoo twice, and the big sandbox twice.
The sandbox where incidentally momma just about got into a fight. Funny story really... Reese was sitting playing and a little boy about 3 or 4 came and sat beside her. He didn't have a pail and Reese had two so I made her give him one. She kept stealing his toys and I kept going over and making her give them back. Then she stole his shovel and as I was getting up to go over and make her give it back, he pushed his pail over, got up and stormed off. I figured we'd had enough so we got out and were getting ready to leave when he came back with his mom. I heard her say, "which one", but seeing as how we had vacated the sandbox, we were able to avoid a confrontation. But seriously, at least I was sitting 3 feet away watching my kid... and what kind of 3 ish year old boy doesn't just take care of his own problem with a little bitty 2 year old??
Apart from that, we tried all sorts of "fair" food. Mini doughnuts, cotton candy, and popcorn. She totally enjoyed having the day all for herself with no baby brother along. It was a great day!

Sully's needles were middle of last week and he did great. Could it be because his thighs are almost as big as mine?? He weighed in at a whopping 26 lbs and 14 oz. Reese was about 19 when she was his age. He's going to be able to defend himself quite well I think.

Scott and i have started watching Food Revolution with chef Jamie Olive a couple Fridays ago. If you haven't seen it you should definitely check it out. He's going into schools in the States and trying to get kids to eat healthier. It isn't really about calories as much as about eating food that is real and not processed. In the spirit of this show, I have been trying even harder to do the same around here. Not saying we don't cheat and have a box of Kraft dinner and hotdogs once in a while but I'm trying hard to make avoid making pre-packaged crap.

Easter was great. We had great visits with everyone, had awesome food and the Easter bunny not only came to our house but also to both grand-parents house. My kids are spoiled!

That's all for now.

Sounds like the fair was fun - mia and winston loved it too - especially the sandbox and the super dogs. Too funny about the other mom!

Sounds like the fair was a blast. Well except the sandbox fiasco, pretty sad...

What a sweet pic of Sully!! I'll tell Mack he needs to make sure he's his friend when they're older. ;) hehe

That's funny June. Hopefully he uses his size for good and not evil.
