Cold weather + three individuals tired of being inside = Lots of trips to the local mall :)

Lucky for us, our mall has a small play area for all the kids to let loose…and Gavin sure loves it!

He played hard for over a half hour and was so worn out by the end that he wouldn’t even crawl anymore, just held his arms up so Daddy would put him back in his stroller.

standingHe was so tired as we headed out to the car that he barely stayed awake to get buckled into his car seat. He was out like a light by the time we left the parking lot.

Finally, an afternoon nap! He’s been refusing those lately! It was nice to have a bit of time to lounge this afternoon!

The other day at the grocery store, I noticed a new product in the yogurt section…


This is GREAT for those of you with kids who need to vamp up the calories. Each of these has 160 calories, 85 mg of sodium and 5 grams of fat. Can we say perfect for little CFers running around! It’s great for just a snack or an addition to a meal. They have three flavors (no, no one is endorsing me to say this…I could only wish!) and Gav can’t get them down fast enough. Plus, they are organic :) Click the picture for more information on it…definitely a new staple in our fridge!

Well it’s time for bed around here and this guy…


is refusing to put on the pjs sitting in front of him…

Wish me luck!

p.s. 10,000 points to anyone who can name that book behind him! major favorite around here :)


  1. "Brown bear, brown bear, what do you see? I see a yellow duck looking at me."

    And in the background of the picture, "Hands, hand, fingers, thumb. One thumb, one thumb, drumming on a drum."

  2. I also know that book well! I'm so glad he loves his books. But Rhonda wins the points!!

  3. That is a great play area for a mall. The mall closest to me did away with their play area.

    Oh the book is Brown Bear. :) I <3 that book.

  4. Brown Bear! Ben loves that book! He can turn the pages by himself and loves doing it.

  5. Nathan has the Panda Bear, Panda Bear What Do you See Book...he loves that one.

    And how cute is that indoor playground!!

  6. PS...Nathan and I have been big fans of those yogurt meals (especially because it sneaks in the vegs)!!
