A co-worker took a late lunch and picked up shakes for everyone. So delicious!

Who doesn't love sunshine and blue skies?

After two busy days we saved Monday for a quiet day at home. Quinn and I did head out to the park for awhile while Chris was working on the yard. He really enjoys pulling his wagon around the neighborhood.

We spent Sunday at Greenfield Village with Grandpa Karath, Uncle Jeff and Grandma and Grandpa Oslund.
It was sunny, it was hot, and it was a lot of fun. 
 Quinn had a good time exploring all of the new places. Since Greenfield Village is so large, there are seemingly endless places for him to run to.
 He enjoyed the classic cars driving by, the train, and all of the animals.
He took a two hour nap in the car and woke up asking for a milkshake. He has such great ideas.

Since it's a holiday weekend and I have Monday off, we drove to the east side of the state to spend some time with family. We visited the Ann Arbor Hands On Museum, which is great for kids.
 We were able to find a quiet restaurant so the little one could take a break from all the excitement and eat some lunch.
He had a lot of fun in the hotel room as well. He really enjoys going on new adventures.

A coworker brought in space cupcakes. Delicious!

These single serve items have really taken off in the last several years, with these brownie and cake mixes popping up now. Chris tried making his own years ago. With a little preparation you can set up several single serve mixes at once for future use. Or you can divvy up a cake mix box as well.

This store only had one flavor - sour cream. At least they had some, even if they're the wrong flavor.

I'm having a surprisingly difficult time trying to get Chris some Lays Stax that he likes. I've been to several stores and they've all been out.

They're getting quite the collection of Star Wars specific Father's Day cards at the local Target.

This is the first time Quinn has licked an ice cream cone. A much different experience than using a spoon and was a little confusing at first.

He really enjoyed this fish tank at the Grand Rapids Public Museum.

Sometimes the most fun comes from a delivery's packaging.

I do love spring days with sunny blue skies.

Toddlers do some interesting things with their toys.

The toddler brought me all of these shoes. Every. Single. Shoe. He. Could. Find.

After work Quinn and I went outside to water some plants. He has his own watering can now and he's very excited.
We also started some seeds in his very own pots. He was pretty excited to drop seeds in the dirt.

Today is my Mother's day and I was greeted with some flowers and chocolate as well as a tasty pancake breakfast. Then we all drove over to the YMCA by my work because I wanted to take Quinn there for swimming. He had fun, but was a little hyper since it was a new space.

All in all a good Mother's Day.

Mothers Day is this weekend so we drove to the east side of the state to celebrate early with family.

Quinn really enjoyed a cupcake for lunch.
 And he had a lot of fun driving a truck around Grandma Karath's apartment.
 He played with some sidwalk chalk at Grandma and Grandpa Oslund's house.
 And ran around like a maniac at the nearby park, enjoying all of the different slide options.
He was so exhausted from such a fun filled day that he slept the car ride home and stayed asleep when he was moved to the crib (which he doesn't often do).

Played a board game at lunch with some co-workers.

Today is the second time a few co-workers and I went out to Geeks Who Drink trivia. There were just three of us this time and we had a pretty good time. Plus, they took our photo and we're on their website for the recap!

I've been trying to prepare some of Quinn's breakfasts with funny faces to encourage him to eat some of the different 

Unfortunately he was not fooled and ate no strawberries.

While Chris worked on assembling Quinn's play house, we took a trip to the local library to pick up a few things and play.

After swimming Quinn helped Chris assemble the play house.
And in the afternoon Chris's best friend Chris came over and introduced us to his girlfriend Amy. They hung our for a little while and played some Mario Kart. It was nice to meet her and it was good to see Chris again.

It's a pretty busy Saturday. There was a haircut, a trip to the park, eating out, and going for an awesome wagon ride. Chris spent a chunk of the afternoon assembling the little guys play house. That meant we took an awesome long wagon ride.

I went to see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 last night, so Chris is going tonight. That means Quinn and I get to hang out together and enjoy play-doh and maybe a movie together later tonight.

The toddler has been pretty against using the potty. He was doing fine for awhile and then a switch flipped and he's been refusing to even sit on it. So I bought a pack of these construction cars to try and coax him into giving it a try.

Two other co-workers and I brought our switches in to play some Mario Kart at lunch. The wireless play was seamless to set up and worked flawlessly. I'm impressed.

Today we vote for a few local ballot proposals. It's important to vote!

It's been a busy day. It's a Monday. I went to work. I visited a friend and saw her two twin babies (that are just one month old). Then I came home and helped this guy settle down for bed.
