Ray and I learned a huge lesson this past weekend: There. Is. No. Rest. While we wish the pictures below could depict how our babies are majority of time, these moments come rare for us. Quite frankly, it only really happens after 7:30pm to 8pm.
While the above statement sounds a bit depressing in a way it's been kind of great because Ray and I are complete homebodies. We will choose staying in over going out 90% of the time. Actually let me rephrase. Ray will choose staying in over going out 100% of the time and I will choose staying in over going out 75% of the time. So with these two, we've been more active physically and just overall, learning to appreciate activities done outdoors.
Below: On your left we have a baby who is about done with being at home so she decided to pour her milk in the doggy bowl because you know, it's exciting and Murphy might want it. On my right, we have a dog who is longingly looking out the window as dad walks away wishing she too could be out there.
As we scrambled to find different things to do all day Saturday and Sunday to entertain our little one and all the while also making sure our puppy baby wouldn't destroy the house due to boredom, we found ourselves taking lots of walks and staying outdoors. Luckily, the heat wave has somewhat subsided here in good ol' Virginia.
Riv's been interested in "drawing" lately and so the sidewalk chalk kept her entertained for some time... not only to draw on the sidewalk but also to use it has makeup and put it all over her face. She may or may not have taken after her mama.
I guess the moral here for the Kim family is: Drink some coffee, get some sleep and be prepared for the weekend. Maybe this will make for some better pictures and more memories.
To end this weekend recap (while this didn't happen for this past weekend), I leave you with this gem because I love it so much. Thanks to my friend Joyce for sharing the photo and Anney for taking it. My little one is always ready to strike a pose and say, "cheese."
