| O N E | We took O to the beach on Monday and it was a beautiful day! We live so close to so many wonderful beaches, and we both (Keith & I) don't know why we don't visit them more often. We went to Redondo Beach in Half Moon Bay for the little tide pool that forms there. We knew O would love searching for crabs and we hoped to see some starfish too, but there weren't any on that day. We found loads of crabs and sea urchins though! It was quite the hike down, and not exactly safe, but it was worth it!
It was such a great day and I really wish we could spend everyday together having fun!
Moscow Mule (<---that's my recipe linked there)!
| F O U R | Owen started Taekwondo this week and he's loving it already!
We've added a new step to our bedtime routine that's made things even smoother and might even lead to a little more independence for O in the future. Before leaving him I give him a book to read and a little extra light and he "reads" before falling asleep. This is a good move in the right direction since it = no more whining or crying or shouting out at bedtime. Since he and the baby will be sharing a room in less than a year I would love for him to be able to continue this quiet and independent little step toward sleep.
| F I V E | I'm kind of cheap. I used to buy every cooking magazine in sight, but sometime in the last two years I got tired of buying them and never having enough time to try everything I wanted. It began feeling like a big waste of money and paper. So, instead I just flip through them when I see them in the long lines at checkout or in a waiting room and if something catches my eye I just snap a picture. Is that weird? I hope not because it is saving me a lot of clutter too!
Have a great weekend!
