We did it.....broke down, gave in, and bought another vacuum. I wish I had a picture to show you the INCREDIBLE amount of dog hair that came up out of this house. In itself, it could have been enough hair for another small black lab. It was money well spent.
We actually have not been to a single baseball game this week. Nick, of course, has been everyday, but me and the boys have opted to stay cool at home. Nick will pitch tomorrow so we will be back at it again. It has been a nice little break but I know the boys enjoy hanging out at the ballpark. Nick only pitches once every seven days so it kind of feels like a long time in between his starts.
Mason has been playing tee ball and really enjoys it. He wants to play morning, noon, and night. He wants to wear his uniform everyday. I absolutely LOVE the feeling I get when he hits the ball and runs to first and then looks for me in the stands and smiles and sometimes gives me the "thumbs up."
Mason is also really into Transformers right now. Before he even knew what they were he had a friend at school who had a Bumblebee backpack and he would talk about it all the time. Without ever seeing a movie or a cartoon he decided he wanted to be Bumblebee for Halloween. We decided to rent the movie for him and he loved it.....all 20 minutes of it before we realized it is NOT a kids movie and turned it off.
Drake...oh Drake. He is so silly. He loves to make funny faces and make us laugh. Most of the time its at the dinner table. He will do absolutely anything that his big brother does. He drinks milk like cows are going extinct and Bubble Guppies is his favorite show to watch on tv.
I did my first mod podge photo canvas this week. (Another idea from pinterest) The picture in the tutorial was black and white so I decided to use a black and white photo I took a while back of my niece, Charlette. It's a little rough but turned out pretty good for my first one.
We realized this morning that we will be back in Arkansas in less than a month! The days have seemed pretty long but the trip as a whole has really gone by pretty quickly. We are definitely looking forward to real "fall" weather. One hundred degrees in October is not fall. I am also looking forward to this upcoming week- a trip home for one of my very best friends' weddings. Cannot wait!
