V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N

Hey. Sorry I’ve been MIA but for good reason…I’ve been on vacation!

Yep, I was pretty pumped when Mommy said we were going on an airplane to Florida!

  at the airport

It had been such a long winter. Snow, cold and sickness. Something a little Florida could cure.

We hit the beach at Ponte Vedra, and kicked off the vacation in the best way possible…with a pit stop at the toy store.

  it’s bigger than me!

I was so happy I brought my trucks with me so I could dig in the sand.

  

The weather wasn’t great but we still had fun. In a way, it was better cause I had the beach all to myself.

   

Daddy and I each did our favorite things. Um, that would be birding and digging, duh.

It wasn’t all sand and games though. We took some beach breaks. One day we went to an alligator farm.

   

Of course no trip with me means a sick-free zone. Nope. Luckily I had brought my stash of lollipops to help me feel better.

But then I rallied and went swimming, played on the playground,

  

played golf, and rode in the cart.

  

I dug in the sand some more and hunted for shark teeth.

  

Got sick again, but nothing that a thick milkshake couldn’t cure.

or a new toy.

We ate so much yummy food. I tried to be on my best behavior when we went out to dinner and not bellow out my trademark primal scream.

   

      

It really was a lot of fun. There was just one problem…

We got back home and it was freezing.

 in warmer times

So I’m packed and ready to go back.

April Showers

Hi…cool kid here!

I’ve been trying to not get down from all this cool weather.
I try my best to do things that make me happy.

A good construction site always cheers me up.

I’ve also been drawing a lot. Gotta love my gallery wall.

And then there’s good ole TV.

Now if I could just relax 😉

Weekend Fun

I was just thinking back on the weekend.

I didn’t think I had much on the docket except for Auntie Lile coming but it turned out to be really busy.

For starters, Mommy and I went shoe shopping on Saturday.

   

Getting new shoes was pretty cool but I didn’t know the best was yet to come

  a balloon!

What else did I do this past weekend?

Well, Auntie Lile came and we played. I told her I’d get her a
Red Sox hat so she’d be cool like me.

Sunday I went to my girl Amelia’s.

We had fun but as usual she was telling me what to do.

The Doc’s house was next and I played with his chickens,

and then it was Masters time!

  and better yet, lollipop time!

 PopPop would love me

Yep, it was a very fun weekend.

I’m already counting down the days till the next one.

Bun Bun 2

I’m making up for lost time.

It took me a long time to warm up to the Easter bunny but now I love him so much. He was really sweet to give me my new little bunny friend.

I squeeze my new soft bunny very tight.

and then realllly reallly tight.

  wait can he breathe?!

Just to be sure he knows I love him.

Before he gets thrown in the pile.

with the rest of my animal friends. Because
you know …

Sammy will always be my #1.

Hoppy Easter

It was almost Easter and I’d heard the Easter Bunny was coming. Last I saw him, he was in Hingham so I told Mommy we needed to high-bunny-tail it  to Hingham so we wouldn’t miss him.

  off we go

Daddy was off looking at birds so it was just Mommy and me.

The first thing I do when I’m in Hingham is go to the farm with PopPop. I like to check on my favorite cow Mojo.

And do I sneak a ride on the tractor? You bet I do.

Monday rolled around and I still hadn’t seen the bunny so we went to the Plaza to find him. I was still leery of him so I only waved from afar. But I did build a bear and eat pizza so the day was not a total loss.

  

I needed to get on good terms with the bunny since I dissed him at the mall. I decided to bake him some cupcakes.

It was finally warming up so Mimi took me to Holly Hill. I fed hay to the horses and saw lots of animals. Truth be told, I was bored stiff until it was snack time.

But don’t worry, the snap pea snack was 100% organic.

We needed to relax afterwards so went to the beach and rested in the beach chairs we made.

The best part  of the beach was digging and collecting rocks to
paint later.

PopPop came home and put me to work as usual.

  

But then we cuddled with Sammy so I wasn’t mad at him or anything.

The rest of the week I played, went to the NE Aquarium, and ate lots of ice cream and whipped cream.

  

Before I knew it, it was time for the big day. I dyed eggs for the bunny.

 

I wanted to make sure the bunny would bring me some good loot.

We went to a pancake breakfast and egg hunt and I finally made friends with the bunny. Maybe because I brought him a giant carrot from the farm he was extra nice and we shared lots of hugs and
high fives.

I must have made a good impression because …

  

wowza, look what I got!

The bunny left eggs in the yard too.

 

I don’t know if it that was nice of him though because it was a lot of hard work finding those things.

     

    

I hope you had a good Easter too!

  

First Day of Spring

Yesterday was the first day of spring. It wasn’t how I imagined it
to be. You know, daffodils, sunshine, and running barefoot.

We went to the playground. I was still wearing my winter jacket.

I had to hurry home to put my groceries away before the Rocky Road melted.

Then I figured I’d give the farm a run.

It’s what you do when it’s still cold out. Hopefully it warms up before July 4th.

 

Ides of March

I don’t know about you but this long month of March is really getting on my nerves.

  mad as heck

It seems like it’s never going to end. I try to keep busy and not dwell on my misery. After this long winter, what else is left for me to do?

Well… I like to make messes, um I mean paint masterpieces

take Mommy on luscious picnics

stir up my creative juices

and go on long walks with my Elmo slippers when the real cabin fever spikes.

Mommy hates the weather too. She acts out about it so I make her drop and give me 20. I tell her she has to have a good attitude.

I can’t believe there’s over a week to go until April.

Better start thinking of some new ideas to keep me busy.
But then does that mean April showers? please no.

Open Wide

Daddy told me to get dressed cause we were going on a surprise outing.

Yippee! I couldn’t wait to see where we were going!
Could it be for a hot fudge sundae, the zoo, the museum, the playground or maybe shopping for new spring clothes?

We started on our way. I was so excited! But wait, did Daddy just take me to… the dentist?! 

No way! I wasn’t happy.

But the good news is that all was good.

And a red lolly on the way home made it all worth it.
