Summer Bucket List

Since I am taking the Summer off from college, I wanted to make sure our family has lots of fun things packed into this three month time period. I'm so excited because this Summer FAR is turning 2 and there are so many fun things to do with him! So here is our Summer family Bucket List :) 

- Go to Stone Mountain and not play in the snow :) 
- Have a huge party for a pretty special 2 year old. 

- Travel to the other best friends house (who doesn't blog-loser) to spend lots of time at the lake that her neighborhood is off of. 
- Weekly play dates with FAR's cousins!  
- Lots of cookouts, with watermelon! 
- Go Strawberry picking 
- Take FAR to see Monsters University in 3D 
- Take FAR back to Noah's Ark
Look how little he was!!!

What NOT to do with a Toddler

So just in case this is your first time here on my side of the internet (Welcome!) I am a stay at home first time mom and a full time student, but that's a different story for a different day. 
RB and I are constantly looking for fun stuff to do with our big guy FAR who is about to be 2! My mother-in-law wanted to treat us to the Aquarium and I just knew Fletcher would LOVE it. In my head I pictured a sweet little boy who looked at the fish all day long and we had the most wonderful family day. 

Umm yeah. That DID NOT happen. He was impressed for the first oh let's say 5 minutes. and then he screamed. He cried. He pitched the biggest fit his two year old body could pitch. FAR wanted to RUN. and running in an crowded Aquarium full of schools on field trips and home school groups and whatever you could imagine just was not a possibility. 
^^How I felt. ^^

So I did what any typical Momma would do. I let him scream and pitch a fit while I enjoyed the fish with my hubby :) 

True story. But what was I supposed to do with a screaming toddler after we were gifted with these awesome expensive tickets. I got looks, I got stares, and honestly, I didn't care. So what finally calmed him down? A 4D movie. 

Fletcher, Mommy loves you so much, but we're not going back to the Aquarium until you are 12

has anyone else had an experience similar to ours? Let me know! I'll host a link-up so we can all learn from each other's mistakes ;)

Hi... is this thing on?

Guess who's back? Yet again. I'm probably the worst blogger on the planet, haha. Life has been CRAZY around here! I'm not promising ill be around during the summer, but maybe i'll post more than once every 3 months. Anyway, so I've been a very busy girl, making deans list and all... 

I promise I took courses harder than Introduction to Film. Although that class was a joke in itsself. I was looking for an easy A. I got a well earned A instead!  

How's Mr. FAR do you ask? Well we went through a crazy time with his ears and eneded up having to have Tubes put in a month ago. 

But now he is completely better than ever, and is loving the crazy hot weather because he can splash around and eat tons of ice cream. 

If you've been following me on Instagram then you already knew all this ;) Was that a shameless plug? Yup, probably. But you will be seeing me around more on these here internets, and some changes are a comin' for this little ole blog of mine. So be ready :)
