I downloaded the new Zelda DLC this morning and we played together a little before I went to work.

Since building the robot on Sunday, he's certainly been fascinated by it. It lives on a shelf in his room and tonight he wanted to see it (but no driving!).

I've been wearing an ankle brace after a co-worker suggested it might help. Since I last sprained my ankle a few years ago I don't think I let it heal right. Now that I'm starting up C25K again, I'm getting a little pain. The brace has definitely helped.

A co-worker ran across several clearanced Zelda microland figures. Hooray for nerdy desk toys!

One of my coworkers made a pan of enchiladas for our group. The food was very tasty!

This afternoon Quinn and I finished assembling Adabox 002, which is a robot kit. When it's all complete, you can control it with a bluetooth app on your phone.

We headed out to the east side of the state this morning to celebrate Father's Day with our parents.

Quinn really loves drinking Grandpa Karath's lemonade!
 He had a good time at the Oslund Grandparent's house as well.
He was wide awake the whole ride home, so after we unloaded the car we chased fireflies in the backyard.

Unreal Estate, which is a game we backed on Kickstarter, arrived today. It features our friend Corinne's art, plus it looks like a fun game! I'm very excited to play it!

I whipped up a quick Doctor Who napkin for the little one this evening. His smile is the seal of approval.

It's an amazing food day at work today. First up, one of the departments made breakfast for the entire building.
Then in the afternoon another group grilled vegetables for everyone. Delicious! I also think this might be the first time I've had a tasty parsnip.
Last, but not least, tasty cake!

Since I have the car most days, sometimes I pop into the stores around work and hunt for toys Chris is looking for. This isn't one of them, but it is a silly one I came across.

It's a beautiful day out.

It's Father's Day! We've had a pretty good day. Quinn slept in, had fun sharing Chris's father's day gift (super hero duplos) and running around the John Ball Zoo. Chris got to take a mini-nap and enjoy a relaxing afternoon.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there (hi dad!).

Chris wanted to spend part of this weekend building some shelves. Since we were already out and about for swim lessons, Quinn and I ran a bunch of errands around town.

Around 3pm this afternoon 3 adorable puppies showed up in the lobby at work. Someone who works in the building owned one and brought in their siblings.

They were so adorable. Puppies should definitely visit offices more often. 

So I texted a co-worker that I was going to be late in the morning so no one would worry I had been in a car accident.

When I came in to the office there was a sympathy card and flowers (picked fresh from the side of the road) for surviving my not-accident.

These guys are so silly and a great group to work with.

We did some swimming practice after dinner tonight. Usually when we go the kids area water toys are off, so it was fun to see them on for a change.

After reading a scathing (and amusing) review out loud on the Pepsi Fire, that same co-worker picked up a 12 pack for everyone in the office to try.

We will see...

So I'm starting Couch to 5K again. I had nearly finished it and then found out I was pregnant (and started spotting) so I stopped a few summers ago. Since my work gives a discount on membership at the YMCA and I'm already taking Quinn for swimming lessons, I thought I'd squeeze in some exercise on my lunch break.

 We took a road trip over to the east side of the state with some friends of ours and their daughter who is 3 1/2.
It was their first time at the Detroit Zoo so we had a lot of fun showing them the cool (also known as air conditioned) buildings. Unfortunately it was 90 degrees today, just like the last time we took Quinn.
After, since we are so close to my parent's house, we stopped in so the kids could take a break and wade in the pool.

The Grand Rapids Public Library had a construction vehicle petting zoo! Quinn enjoyed looking at the different vehicles and exploring downtown Grand Rapids.

He's perfecting pouting for things.

I ran some errands during my lunch hour and snagged a cheap meal at Costco. It's convenient working so close. It's just 5 minutes away.

I'm really enjoying the sunshine during my lunch hour.

Awhile back Quinn and I planted some seeds in small pots. They've since outgrown their small homes and it was time to move them into something else.

Unfortunately we have a lot of wild animals that come by. They nibble down most of the hostas and other plants, so I know I can't create a garden without a lot of work.

As an experiment, I thought we'd try a small portable planter called City Pickers.
I'm sure it's designed for growing things on balconies in apartment complexes, but it should serve our purpose on the deck. I also picked up a rectangular net called Pest Guard from Amazon, since the local stores here didn't sell anything like this.

I replanted the carrots, sunflowers and basil that had outgrown their little pots. Quinn helped and now we can watch together and see how they grow.

When I left home there was blue in the sky, but as I traveled east it became foggy and overcast. Hours later the fog is gone but it's still overcast.

We may have finally found something the toddler will eat while out and about. Pancakes.

I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing.

We spent part of the day at John Ball Zoo, which is the perfect size for a toddler to run around at.

It's National Doughnut Day, which means tasty pastries at work.

Chris went out with friends to see Wonder Woman so Quinn and I stayed in and had a movie night of our own.
