Things That Make Me Say Yeay + A Foggy Week Indeed
Friday, May 23, 2014
Another crazy part about our recent scare was that this week our backyard pool was completed. Talk about bad timing. When we came home from the hospital I just wanted to cover it up with dirt and make it all go away even though that is a totally unrealistic idea. So...the first thing we did this week was get a baby safety gate installed all the way around. Makes me feel much better about us all being outside and playing. I feel like if you have a pool and small kids this is just so important.
Peach cobbler made with the juiciest peaches from my mom's tree. I used hazelnut flour for the first time with this recipe and it could not have been more delicious! I loosely based it off of my favorite Paleo cobbler recipe BUT if you do not care whatsoever about your desserts being healthy then I highly recommend this recipe.
The cutest little hot air mobile. Some sweet baby out there needs this in their nursery.
I took the boys to a local science museum yesterday (it was cooler than it sounds ha) and they had a little segment where they did a bunch of science experiments with the kids. This one used a mason jar filled with hot water, a block of dry ice and dish soap. It made this fun bubbly explosion that my boys thought was the most amazing thing ever.
Peonies, which are my all time favorite pretty-ing up my nightstand. Thank you Trader Joe's for always carrying the best flowers.
This was without a doubt a strange week. I felt like I have been in a weird fog. The day we came home from the hospital after Ronin's incident I thought I was okay...but it turns out I wasn't and I am still trying to deal with the wave of emotions that I feel and my fear that I have developed with my kids being around water and pools. I also wanted to say thank you so so much from the bottom of my heart to all of you who shared the recent post with your friends and family. You have no idea how much that means to me that YOU are helping spread awareness about Secondary Drowning and by doing that you are the one that may save a life and prevent this from happening to someone else. So thank you again.
