Should I Wash That Mouth With Soap?

I have a clear memory of having my mouth washed out with soap when I was younger...OK...I wasn't two, but maybe ten...I don't remember what I did to deserve such a response, but I'm sure my mom felt justified for it at the time!

Owen has acquired the following phrases:

1. Damn!


3. DAMN IT! (As he pounds his fist on the table).

I am horrified...How can my sweet little boy say such things! WHERE did he pick these things up?

Joe thinks he was the one who on a recent occasion, while hanging out with Owen, may have let at least 2 of the 3 slip. Oops. I have no idea how to fix this...I read that one should ignore it...but that's so hard...I immediately get the urge to reach for the Ivory Bar, but I know that's not the answer either...but at least it will make me feel like I'm doing SOMETHING about it! ACK!!!

Hey! I have an idea! I'll wash Joe's mouth out with soap!

One of the new things that O was exposed to while his aunt Gigi was visiting was Godiva chocolates...and say that he LOVED them is a true understatement!!!

He would ask for them all day long...and let it be noted, that the first time O asked for something with a "Please mama" without being prompted to by yours truly, was when asking for a chocolate. (SMART BOY!)...

The pictures above document what happened after his mama said "No more chocolate today piglet..."

Is he my son, or what?

Pooping Elephant...

All O wanted to see at the Zoo on Sunday was an elephant pooping...he got this from watching a youtube video of pooping elephants...and now he is fascinated with it. Thankfully, the only shot I got of an elephant, was sans poop!

There was this cute little elephant statue, and Santi and O had fun with it...O even tried to sound like an elephant...

We had a really great time hanging out's such a beautiful zoo...

After walking around a while and having lunch, we went on the carousel for a goodbye spin...

Owen wasted no time in falling asleep on the way home...we had a great weekend with the family and can't wait to see everyone again...

Birthday Bash!

We headed over to Seattle for the weekend to help Jeri and Santi celebrate their birthdays! We had a WONDERFUL time...
The drive only took 4.5 hours...O slept for two of those hours, and we read and sang songs for the remainder of the drive! Joe and I were both pleasantly surprised with the time it took! Yey!
Saturday morning, dad and I went to Pike Place Market to do a "little" was good to spend time together and catch up!

We got back home just in time to get ready before the guests arrived...Santi had some little friends over, so he and O were throughly entertained...(as were the rest of us watching them!)...We had a FABULOUS lunch...and cake! (O loved Aunt Lupe's cake!)...

After people began leaving, we stayed outside, enjoying the dwindling fire and each other before we went to bed!

Coeur d'Alene...

For Labor Day we headed over to CDA for the morning...It was pretty quiet for a holiday and a beautiful day! We parked and walked around a bit, then headed out to the beach and the dock...O loved the float planes and I can't wait till he's a little bit older so we can all take the scenic trip!
We headed home around 2ish and spent the rest of the day at home. It was a lovely day together!!!
