A day in the life

Tuesday 8/28/2012
This was our day.
It's not important.
It's not life altering.
But it was kind of fun in places.
Stressful in others.
Always more to do that time to do it in.
Including capturing it in picture form.
So here are some highlights.
Just the good stuff.
Ben got his first tooth.  His first real tooth.  It appeared on Sunday. In celebration I gave him an apple slice on Tuesday.  He wasn't sure what do.
He figured out it.
This is the current state of my produce corner. I keep on meaning to bottle or freeze the tomatoes, cook the zucchini and yellow squash and baby potatoes for dinner, boil the yams for Ben, leaving the pears, bananas, and avocados a sanctuary all their own to ripen and be eaten as pleased.
Breakfast of champions!  A Kefir, banana, peach, strawberry smoothie and a banana bar with cream cheese frosting.  The smoothie should balance everything out right??
We went for a walk.  Ben in his hat and me in mine.  That should work off some of those cream cheese calories right?  Ok, I don't really care about the calories, but we both enjoyed the fresh air.
The zucchini was used!  Oven baked zucchini chips to the rescue!  Surprisingly tasty too!
I finally got the chance to use my multi-pack of sharpie markers.  I'm a sucker for office/school supplies and have been wanting these for a long long time.  I found them on sale for $4 at Staples and they were mine!  So much better than $12!  I would post a picture of what I did with them, but it would ruin a birthday surprise for someone else.
Ben LOVES bath time.  Loves. The bathroom gets a shower every time he gets a bath!
Nothing like a little chocolate to end the day and something on Netflix to end a day.
More happened.
David was here for some of it.
He worked at CAPSA all day, came home and quickly grilled burgers for dinner and headed off to a Young Men's activity, thus his absence in the photo portion.
All in all, not a bad day.


  1. Sounds like a great day to me!

  2. Cute post!! Ben is adorable and I just love how you word things :)

  3. You are such a cute and fun mom :)

  4. Ben is getting so big. He is so adorable. I love your everyday pictures. It is fun to document the randomness of a day. Did those sharpies have anything to do with a certain avengers ball? A ball which we all love and have eagerly welcomed into our family. Thanks for thinking of us. We miss you and keep the blogs a comin'

    1. There just may have been something "vengeful" in those markers now that I think about it! So glad you guys liked the ball. I thought it was pretty awesome myself! And sad we missed you guys for Labor day! We were all caught up in home improvement projects and it wasn't until Monday that I thought to myself "hey, weren't those one people from bozeman gonna be in Grace??" le sigh.
