A couple weeks ago I tried to document our day by snapping ten photos to show what we were up to. This is Monday, April 10th, 2017!
Last week was an absolute nightmare. It all started Monday night when I got sick with a stomach bug, a couple days later Keith did too, and then Luke got another ear infection which resulted in a trip to urgent care and then the ER. We thought we were in the clear by Saturday, but then Owen got sick overnight. Luckily, he didn't seem too worse for wear on Easter, but we still stayed home because we all needed to recuperate.  We're finally all back to normal! Here's what things were like on Monday before it all went to hell. 

Luke slept really badly the night before. We were up on the couch from 3:30 to 5:30 when he finally fell asleep. I had tried unsuccessfully to put him back in his crib, so I brought him to our bed instead. He slept on my chest until close to 7am when Owen woke up too.

We dropped Owen off at school and then walked across the street to Safeway for some things. One thing I will really miss about Owen's school (besides the amazing school itself!) is how close the post office, library, park, grocery store, bank and tons of restaurants and shops are to the school.

PS> Those Outshine Fruit & veggie bars are a new favorite of mine!

Luke and I headed home for a bit, and I made him his favorites: scrambled eggs, avocado and red grapes. He inhaled the whole plate!

I realized Luke had barely worn his cute little Easter tee, and Easter was only a few days. How cute is he? I'm always bummed when holidays are over and I can't quite put the boys in their holiday clothes.

When we got home from picking Owen up I made lunch for us all. Owen had leftover tritip, berries and cheese. He ate it all -- my boys were hungry this day!

I had tritip too, but in a salad. It was fantastic! Most weekdays I don't really make myself lunch and just eat a little bit of this or that that I'm making for the boys. I'd love to make something like this each day, but it's just not realistic these days with my busy guys.

Also, have you tried Spindrift sparkling waters? We got them at Costco and they're really good. They have a lot more flavor than most fruit infused flavored waters.

After lunch we played in the yard until it was nap time for Owen. The weather has still been pretty overcast and cool here and we're just dying for some sunshine, because these boys love to be outside!

While Luke napped Owen and I listened to a couple Stories Podcasts. We LOVE this podcast! They share a new (free!) story each week and they have a lot of classics like The Little Red Hen etc. We also shared some jelly beans! I love this quiet downtime with my sweet big boy!

After nap time we took off to gymnastics! Owen was so reluctant to take the class, but after the first day he was totally hooked! He has a lot of fun and loves that his class is full of other boys like him. Luke is a complete handful during the class alternating from trying to get out on the mats and running for the parking lot.

I'm short one photo for this month, but it's better than skipping it altogether like I did last month!

So, that was our day!
