Productive Day

I feel like ever since it's been getting so hot, (and then rainy too) I've been lacking motivation to do anything! I made some goals and lists and hopefully I'll get back in my groove! Today was good, but it's only one day! We'll see how long it lasts!! Sorry this post became so long! It looks like we were super busy but many of these activities last only a few minutes so we still had lots of down time in addition to these things we did!

I decided the only way we could spend much time outside would be to do it early! So at 8:30 we headed over to Heritage Park. The weather was perfect. It was warm but with shade from trees we were pretty comfortable.We found some pine cones. And threw them in bushes. (Don't ask, I don't know why that's what he always wants to do with them)

And played!


Then we came home for Snack Time!


Next we shifted gears with singing songs and reading some library books.


I then introduced Emery to some rice. He scooped and poured and had a grand 'ol time. Well, that is until he poured a cup of water in the rice! (It was my fault I guess. I left it on the table from snack time and he's a curious 2 year old!)



Then it was lunchtime with some cheese quesadillas.


Finally nap time :)

After our rest we played animal matching...


what doesn't belong....


and matching.
After this we had to stop and pick up Daddy from work. Emery was so excited to play blocks with Daddy! And then he saw the rice and played that some more!



After dinner we had Family Home Evening.


For our treat we made pudding in a bag. It's easy, just use the recipe on the box but shake and squish it in a bag instead of whisk it! Lots of fun!!


We topped our pudding off with some whipped cream too :)

Oh, and as we waited the 5 minutes for the pudding to set a little, we practiced buttons with a vest on Emery's brown teddy bear.


And also on his bed spread. (It's a duvet and has a cover. The opening at the bottom is done up with 3 buttons.) They are the perfect size for beginners!

We had a fun day! We'll see what tomorrow brings....

Looks like you guys had a fun filled day! Emery is getting so big to be able to do all those things. I spoke to Jaree on Sunday, it was good to catch up with her. She asked about you and I let her know what you were up to.

Awh! Looks like you had tons of fun. I like your idea of putting treats in muffin tins, how perfect is that?
