T. Rex & Knitting

I think we are finally getting back into the swing of things after our long weekend.

We didn't have any huge plans for the 4th.  My parents had a party so we were there pretty much all day on Sunday.  Logan and Cole were in the pool from about 1 until 6ish.  They were soooo tired!!  Honestly I wish we could do that everyday, they came home and went right to sleep! 

It was a nice day, celebrating, eating good food and hanging out with friends and family.  Though Logan learned what happens when you eat pretty much nothing but 12 + cupcakes and steamed clams.  (sounds lovely, right?)  about 12 am he woke up and told me he puked.  We all had fallen asleep in the living room and he very narrowly missed puking on Ryan's head.

I wish I had gotten pictures (not of the puke)  of the days festivities, I had taken my camera with good intentions of using it but I never did.
We had gone shopping on Saturday and all Logan wanted was an ant farm (yeah just what I need, more ants in my house)  so to be fair Cole got to pick something out too.  Anyway, Cole picked out this rather large plastic T Rex.  He is crazy about dinos right now.  He had to take Dino to the party with us Sunday and pretty much everyone had a fun time playing with him.  Dino was swimming, eating, and even drinking beer (don't ask) along with attacking unsuspecting party goers. 

Here is a picture of Cole with Dino taken in the living room this morning, he has not left him out of his sight since he's gotten him.

So I've been wanting to make sweaters for the boys' for awhile.  I think Cole's love for dino's has lead me to ideas for him.  Its between this and this  I'm having a hard time picking out yarn for either one.  I don't want to spend a fortune for  a sweater for a kid but I honestly don't know if I can deal with working with acrylic for that long.  I know such a snob...sorry! 

Poor Logan has been bugging me for awhile because he wants me to make him something.  I really want to make him a sweater too and I want to do his first.  I'm just having a hard time finding something he'll like in his size.  It seems like all kids sweater patterns stop at 4-5 years!  I did find this but it sort of scares me...but I know he'd LOVE it.  We'll see...I'm going to try to look up yarn today and see what I can find. 

Today is my husband's birthday, he is turning 32 today, I honestly don't know how we got so friggin old.   Its hard to believe but this October we will have been together for...OMG!  15 that right??  We started dating October 27th, 1995.  Wow, crazy. 

Anyway, the boys and I just got done baking his cake for dinner tonight (I have to go to work shortly).  We made him a big top cupcake cake.  I'll try to remember pictures later.  I don't think we'll really do anything exciting today, other than finish working on canning pickles and figure out what to do with all this zucchini & green beans!


  1. Wow, you guys have been together along time! Congrats!

    Wow, 12 cupcakes!?? Yeah, I think I'd be sick too!

    Happy birthday (now belated) to your hubby! Hope he had a great day.

  2. at least now he knows never to combine 12 cupcakes and clams together again. poor kid!! wow, 15 years? that's awesome. :) you know for sweater patterns, I think you can just go up a needle size or two and just work it out? i'll look to see if i have any sort of basic sweater patterns for bigger sizes. have you thought about the drive thru??
