First of, how can you not love this face? This was taken last Friday on one of our many mommy & me dates. I’m trying to be more creative with what we do during the week. With my husband’s deployment creeping up really fast, I want to create some kind of routine and activities that we can do together to pass the time. A way to keep our minds off things and something just to look forward too. I also want to start doing theme days with an activity and craft centered around it. I will be posting our adventure on here, so stayed tuned!
So this past Friday, the weather was absolutely beautiful in Wyoming. The sun was shining bright and the temperature was just perfect. You didn’t need a coat at all. It was too nice to pass up. So lil man & I jumped in the car and headed to one of the local parks. Along the way, we grabbed lunch and snacks for the ducks. When we first got to the park, the squirrels came out in full force. I think they knew we had food. They literally came up to us and took the food out of our hands.
And like throwing pros, we fed the ducks too! It’s amazing how fast you go through a bag of bread when you are feeding the ducks. Lil man even snuck a few pieces for himself. Silly boy.
After feeding the ducks & ourselves, we wandered around in the Children’s Village, AKA awesome play area the city built. We managed to squeeze in some music making time. Can you tell he was enjoying himself? It was hard to pull him away from it.
But like with all good things, they must eventually come to an end. Back in the car we went and headed home. After a quick snooze for both of us, we finished off theme of the day with a duck craft.
For this craft, I drew out a duck (looking at it now, it’s more like a swan) on white paper and cut it out. Then I glued it on a sheet of yellow paper. I let lil man take a paint brush and paint glue on the white part. After he was done, he got to sprinkle white tissue paper on the wet glue. Once everything was dry, I added some cutouts to make it look like a duck/swan. What do you think?
Not to bad for a Friday, right? The weatherman says the weather is going to be good this week, so fingers crossed we can do something outside again this week. Hard to believe it’s December around here. You would think we are heading in to spring! But I guess that just means we are going to have snow come June. So not looking forward to that!
