This is Bug’s new friend Noah. Noah’s super awesome parents just moved here on a total leap of faith to be the worship leaders of our church. They moved to a new city & state knowing only a few people… just picked up and moved. They have garnered a lot of respect from me! We’ve really enjoyed getting to know them and showing them a little bit about where we live… like Mote Marine! One of our favorite places to spend a morning.
The day we visited Mote, we took the boys across the street to have a little picnic lunch. Not a bad spot for a picnic, huh? The boys loved watching boats go by! You will notice here that Bug looks quite a bit shorter than Noah. This is true. And, of course, Noah is 3 months younger than Bug. Story of my poor short kid’s life.
I realize it doesn’t look like much of an incline, but this is pretty much the biggest hill in Venice. It’s part of the Legacy Trail, which is the amazing bike trail that I run on. This bridge goes over US 41. I used to look at this bridge as a challenge during my run. Now I stop and walk and take pictures.
Sometimes, Bug wakes up too early for my liking. Especially after I’ve worked a late night. Hubby goes to work at 7am, and his car often wakes up a small child. If I don’t have to work that morning, or if we don’t have plans of some kind, Bug gets to pick out a movie and climb in bed with me. We both think this is awesome. He’s holding a Tums in that picture that was left over from the night before on my bedside table… I wouldn’t let him eat it, so he just held onto it for like 45 minutes.
It was my turn to wait for the hood cleaners at work last week… yay! Once a quarter, guys come to clean the hoods in the kitchen. Instead of leaving work at about 11pm, someone gets to stay with the hood guys until, oh, about 2am. It’s awesome. I decided to make the most out of that time and work on a project. I started making a paint chip mobile for baby girl’s room. It turned out pretty cute… eventually I might even do a little tutorial on it.
This is Bug. He was once a baby. He is now a big boy. Just ask him. I love looking in on him while he’s sleeping, because he just looks so… so… grown up! Until I realize that his Bud (his lovey blanket) his in his mouth because he fell asleep sucking it. That makes me feel a little better… like he’s not growing up quite so fast.
