As usually happens in the wake of an eventful and exciting weekend, we tried to take it easy as much as we could this week. We were only partly successful in this endeavor.
Every once in a while I’ll be handling some task around the house and will be presented with an opportunity to run as quickly as I can for my camera.
Other times, this urge hits me when we’re somewhere out in the world and my camera is safely tucked away at the house.
Weekdays are like that. Weekends, of course, are a time when I try to make up for the lack of photos taken during the routine of the week. Usually this is because we’re involved in some kind of event.
These events just happened to overlap a bit. For some reason Owen insisted that I accompany him to this party, so I took to my usual process of splitting my time between playing and snapping photos.
Once all the play time was finished, he sat down for the birthday song and some treats.
As he often does, he refused to eat any cake (he’s not a big frosting fan). We went back in a played a little more, then headed back home to have Max regale us with stories about what he got up to after we left.
The following morning was our usual lazy Sunday, and this weekend Christy got a chance to sleep in a bit. This meant the boys and I just played around quietly downstairs until they found something that amused me enough to get me to grab the camera once again.
The day proceeded typically, but after nap time we had a little bit of business to tend to. Owen has been creeping toward a milestone that involves some pretty big changes to his living space, and it was finally time for us to let him make some choices in that regard.
To be continued next week…

Seems like it’s almost time to move him up to the next level.
In case you were wondering how we spent the rest of our Sunday afternoon.
See you next time!
