10 pictures on the 10th day of the month!

Last Thursday was the tenth of the month, so I tried to document our day by snapping ten photos to show what we were up to. This is Thursday, November 10th, 2016!

The time change was last week, so we've been up super early all week. This has been the WORST because it also coincided with Keith's new schedule at work which has him out the door by 7am every morning.

We got an email from Owen's teacher the night before saying that someone in his class had Hand, Foot and Mouth disease, and since we have had that before and it was a NIGHTMARE, we decided to keep Owen home from school. So, this is quite different from our regular Thursdays.

It wasn't until 8am when I was putting Luke down for his first nap that I realized it was a 10 on 10 day! 

While Lukey napped I staged and took photos for a blog post I wrote last week about What's in My Diaper Bag. Owen likes to get involved anytime he sees me doing this, which is really sweet, but it also takes a little extra time

Luke's nap ended up being on the short side, so when he woke up he was a tad cranky. We quickly remedied that situation with a few rounds of "peek-a-boo" (works every time!), and then all was right in the world again.

I fed the boys lunch and then packed us up for a quick trip to Target and Costco. It is no small feat going to either store with both boys in tow, and doing both in one outing exhausts me. I think the hardest part is that once we're home and I've gotten us all back in the house I also have to go back out and unload everything too.

When we pulled up to the house there was a package on the doorstep, and I was so thrilled to see that it was my new gym shoes!

And this sweet angel fell back to sleep on the way home, so our task of unloading the car was much easier. Owen helped me bring everything in and then we played a few numbers games I made for him before deciding to play in the back yard for a while.
Luke's second nap was thankfully much longer and he woke up really happy! He's been a walking machine lately (with the help of his push car) and wants to do everything his brother does!
Keith gets home earlier now that he starts so early, so to kill a little daylight we went on a short walk before he made it home. Most of the time Luke will stay in the stroller on our walks, but if we are idle too much he'll want to get out and I end up holding him most of the rest of the walk. Owen loves to stop and watch ants and find good sticks, so Luke ended up in my arms after a block or two.

I was able to put Luke back in the stroller for the walk home, but only because I offered him a banana applesauce pouch. Thank the Lord, because he was killing my back.

Keith came home, ate dinner with us and then took of to see Dr. Strange with our nephew while my sister-in-law hung out with me and the boys. It's always nice to have not only the extra help, but also the good company!

After he boys went to bed I worked on my diaper bag blog post and then hit the hay! 

And that was our day!
