You and me we made a vow.

The weather has weirdly cooled down a lot this past week and it's that perfect kind of weather where you actually want to be outside and do things because you're not dying of heat. So I made Chad go to Fort Snelling with me. Oliver fell asleep before we got there so we sat in the car and ate Taco Bell for a little before waking him. After waking him up he was pretty much grumpy the rest of the day :( he also felt betrayed when the "park" we went to didn't have anything to play on. Although he loves playing with the sticks and water he just forgets sometimes.











I have also been attempting to use the video on my camera, something I'm super excited about because i've never had it on a DSLR before! This is my first little attempt, its super shaky and I was manually focusing so.. you know. Anyways I'm looking forward to getting better.

Where is the moment we needed the most.

Some pictures of two cute cousins. Btw, Lexie posed her little hand on Oliver all by herself it was adorable. Also note that Lexie is holding a cat toy in the other pictures. She really needs a cat. 










We had a lot of fun this week with the Crewdson family over at our house for a couple days along with grandma, Rachel, and Jordan. I think it's going to be tough for Oliver to get used to playing with just me during the day again. It might be a little tough for me too. :)

uh huh

Today we went to the park and I got a chance to use my camera a little more. :) 


When Oliver saw this chair he said, "this is my fancy new chair" in a funny voice and kept talking about his fancy chair, it was pretty funny.

Now I'm out Free

A couple photos from this past week! 

Oliver likes to go on Pinterest with me every once in awhile and we look at crafts to do at some point. He found this gummy bear slime that he was super excited about so we tried it. It didn't work out at all. But.. we used the stove instead of a microwave. And then we had no cornstarch, which i'm sure made a big difference. But he still had a little fun.  



I also got a new camera! The D800 i've been planning for since last year. I wasn't planning on buying it until around August but then I was watching ebay bids for a little and there was a great one ending that I knew would save me about $250 so I went for it and got it. It was pretty exciting. Here is my first picture with it.... and then one of each of our pets :) Its probably not super noticeable that there is a difference then my old pictures, but there is. Like the picture of kitty is super crazy compared to my old camera because she is all black and in a big shadow which normally I could have never gotten anything close to this. The quality is just so much better its exciting. 



Playing with the cats.
