This is what my living room looks like at any given time. Completely strewn with Legos. Glad there is creativity happening, but watch where you step!
Oh, hey, all of these were taken with my iPhone. Then I put them in Instagram (photo app) and have fun adding frames.
And its hard to be mad at this face and his excitement.
We have become addicted to the local hibachi restaurant. Lunch time on the weekends is the best. It might just be the yum yum sauce…
We have been picking apples. The Jonathon apples here are fantastic for eating, but also baking. Our local orchard is a wonderful little family-run place, Allen Orchard. Its just a few minutes away. We are waiting for pears next!
We attended an outdoor concert, for the second year, on the lawn of Brucemore Mansion here in Cedar Rapids. Orchestra Iowa performs a pops concert. This year’s selections were from Gershwin and Ferde Grofe. And there was a special treat because the Quad Cities Ballet performed as well. Its such a fun evening. Everyone arrives early with picnic baskets and chairs. People even bring tables! Its fun to see all the fun foods people pack, from cheese and wine to soups and take out!
The little man begins his Boy Scouting adventure this week. His first Tiger Cub meeting is Monday. And we began selling popcorn this weekend. He is giddy about the whole thing. And so is my husband (Eagle Scout). Watching your husband and son bond over something is truly amazing and it melts my heart to watch them. The little man is one lucky boy!
Such is the busy life in the Crawford household! :) The Enbrel is helping greatly and getting back to being me is wonderful! Its going to take awhile to trust the meds, to trust that I can start living again. I will also have to listen to my body and take it easy when needed. All in all, things are good. Very good. Each day is truly a gift.
Have a wonderful weekend! thanks for stopping by!
