Willow's Lunch

Just a simple cheese teddy bear lunch today, on a round turkey sandwich. With some halved grapes, baby carrots and cucumber. She actually ate it all, including the carrots. 

Ryder has, what I think is, his 25th cold of this year. I'm exaggerating of course but it sure feels like it. He is constantly a wet, sloppy mess. His nose running and his mouth drooling everywhere he goes. I hope once it gets warmer he will get over these colds and be less cranky. Then again, it could be due to a shot he had last week at the doctors. 

Despite that though, we did have a good morning. He slept most of it but when he was awake, he was pretty cheerful. Here's a pic of him waking up after his nap and his big sis playing peekaboo with him in his crib. He loves it when she comes into his room (or our room!)

Smudgy mirrors make great backgrounds! 

Willow has been so looking forward to go to the duck pond when the warmer weather comes so she was very excited today when I told her we were going to go. I was hoping there'd be ducks so she wouldn't be disappointed. 

On the way there, we stopped at Macdonald's driveway which had a huge line of cars infront of us. So I told Willow to make some faces and took pics while we waited.

Here's her 'normal' face.
Here's her 'silly' face.
Here's her 'mad' face, which I said wasn't mad-looking enough.
So here's her 'even-madder' face lol.
Here's her 'sleepy' face.
And here's her laughing-at-Mommy's-silly-faces face :)

The things you do!

We were both very happy to see the geese in the pond as we drove up to it. There were so many in fact. All over the grassy area where she could be near them and feed them.

And they were quite friendly as you can see.
Well, except for this one! He was bossing all the others around.
She had a nice time running around 
and getting grass stains on her pants lol.
I got Ryder out of his stroller for a bit and he waddled around with the geese.
And played with Willow.
But he really wasn't feeling up to it so we didn't stay as long as I would have liked. 

When it was time to go there was lots of whining. 'I'm going to miss the geesies!' ... 'I'm hungry!' .... 'Mommy, I NEED a cuddle!' ... 'I want to go somewhere else!' Oh man. I couldn't get her into the car quick enough. And then she cried in her car seat all the way home. As did Ryder. But then they both took a two hour nap and I got a nice break. Phew.

First of all, your kiddos are SUPER cute! With that being said, your little lunch arrangement is adorable, too.

It's clever of you, and sweet, to put so much care into Willow's meal. Myself, I distinctly remember the extra, finishing touches my mother would make when packing my lunch box. I mean, I never had a "cheese" bear or anything, but thoughtful notes went a long, long way...

Good on you! Newly following through the Fab Friends Thursday Blog Hop!
