Fun with the Fam!


Lar and I went to Nebraska this past weekend for my cousin Jake's wedding. As you can tell we had a great time hanging out with the fam! Although, Lars has some stranger anxiety with most people, he felt right at home the the craziest people around. Maybe cause that is "his normal", with me for a mom!!

My Aunt Becky took us to the Omaha Zoo on Friday before the wedding. Hands down this is the best zoo I have been too in a long time! If you are ever in NE you have to go!! If you see any crazy animals out of the cages, don't worry, it's probably just my family! :):)

Lars is normally a great kid, but I have to give him major props for this weekend! He was really on his A-game the whole time! For four days he never got to have a whole nap and he went to bed around 11pm each night. He didn't complain, he just kept rolling with the punches, and hammin' it up! We had such a great time!!

Painting Pottery

This morning I was just trying to waste a little time before Lars needed to take a nap. I decided to go into a local pottery store to check their prices. Well, as you can see, we ended up staying more than a few minutes! The girl working at The Pottery Wheel in South Riding was very helpful and their prices were reasonable!! Don't tell Grammee, but Lars painted a flower pot for her birthday next week!
I was really bummed I didn't have my camera with me! He looked so cute and had such a great time painting! I did have my phone with me, which I used to take some pics, but they are a little grainy. We are definitly going back, WITH the camera!!
You can tell he had fun by the paint that he wore home and tried to share with Garfunkel!! :):)

Lars' new shoes

video

My sister, Kim, sent Lars these shoes that have a squeaker in the heel. Every step he takes they squeak! Today is the first day he has really worn them enough to realize that he is making the squeak sound. This is a great way to get him to walk, because he loves to hear the squeaker!!

After he was all dressed for bed and just playing a little more before going up he spotted his squeaker shoes. He brought them over to Karl and started trying to put them on. Karl helped him put them on and then he proceeded to "walk" around the kitchen, squeaking all the way!!
