4th - Independence Day
Jess, Ray and the kids spent most of the day with us swimming, eating, and reading Friends trivia cards.
Poppy and Oliver took a late morning nap before festivities
I made a yummy blueberry Coleslaw
Moms fruit pizza! I'd been wanting one for 10 years
(I made the gluten-free sugar cookie crust - so good)
Oliver was very fascinated with Poppy grilling outside.
After the H's left, Oliver went down for a nap, Mom and Dad worked on the very patriotic American flag puzzle (impossible and annoying) and I began reading The Passage by Justin Cronin (I thought it was agonizingly slow and overly-detailed at parts, but overall still an interesting read. Sequel comes out October 16)
Oliver, his Nook, and his Poppy. Happy times.
8th - Oliver's big play date

9th - Framed one of my new designs from my propaganda series
15th - Oliver with his toddler rhyme Bible and dapper church atire
20th - Shopping with Addison at Target.

Oliver loved it for 30 minutes (mostly because I brought all sorts of snacks for him) and then he just wanted to climb on everything. Jess had picked us up so we paced the halls until the movie was over. Memorable, indeed.
The boy and his food.
One of the cutest things I've ever seen.
27th - Another visit to Orlando.
Music man needs a piano AND a keyboard.
They live on the other side of the state but were driving nearby after staying at a hotel for their anniversary. We went out to First Watch for lunch (I love breakfast food) and then spent the afternoon watching Doctor Who and talking about aliens and UFO's. There was also coffee and chocolate involved. It made my
And I will cut the update off here and pick up with a recap of August later :)
