Here's some of what we did while Dad was out of town. Actually, most of these pictures were taken in one day, but whatever.
We excitedly watched the trash truck, like we do on every trash day.
Drew had one of his new favorites- whole wheat flatbread with hummus on it. Those funny red marks on his nose, right cheek, chin, and all around his mouth are from something in the hummus, but I'm not sure what. Garlic, maybe?
The new roman shades I ordered for the boys' rooms came, and we had lots of fun playing with the boxes. Drew loves crawling under things- my legs, Zach's legs, the dogs, etc., so he was excited when we made a tunnel to crawl through.
Then my favorite song, Say Hey, I Love You by Michael Franti and Spearhead came on. The boys love this song as much as I do, so we cranked up the volume and got to dancing. Here's Drew showing us how to dance on your knees. I think I have some college friends who showed him how to put his hands up and show his midriff when he dances. He loves to dance!
Then Zach tried to dance with Drew. It's probably a good thing that Drew was already sitting down, because usually when Zach tries to dance with Drew, Drew ends up on his butt anyway.
At dinner Drew played some more peek-a-boo, which he thinks is just so fun.
While Mike was gone we also had a picnic-playdate at the park with some friends, went for a bunch of walks/bike rides, and just the other normal stuff. Nothing too exciting, really. We were all excited for Daddy to get home! And now I think I need to plan a trip away so Mike knows what it's like to take care of the kids by himself for a few days. :)
