This Is Sunday

Most of our day was spent driving to Arlington Heights in search of a new couch. I have finally surrendered and accepted that I am not going to find anything that we want on Craigslist so we drove all the way out to Ashley Furniture for their Memorial Day Sale. Of course we fell in love with a sectional set that was more than three times what we had planned on spending, but I loved it so we made the deal. Then we got home and realized it’s way to friggin big. Yes, we are the people who drove all the way out to the burbs without taking measurements. So we called the guy and he is holding our order so we can still have the same delivery date but will have to drive out again tomorrow to buy a new one. The right size this time.

But we did still find time to take Lilo to the beach. It was a beautiful sunny day at our house but just 4.5 miles away it was freezing! We were all underdressed and Canyon had to stay in his carrier covered up with a blanket from the car.

In an effort to get caught up I give you several days of Canyon all at once. Can you handle all the cute?

Blanket from Great Grandma Viets

Canyon models his new blanket from Great Grandma Viets.

And of because it’s me it’s not your normal photo of a baby in a blanket. I have to bundle him up like a little blue bear, find a flowering tree at sunset with some green grass and dandelions.

Dandelion Daze

I am sorry I have been such a bad blogger lately, but there has just been so much going on and it’s hard to focus long enough to put thoughts together! So here comes a flood of posts. Canyon, Lilo and I are enjoying our days together. Last Friday we hung out down by the lake in a field of dandelions…

I call this one Dandelion Deity…

I am pleased to say that Lilo is getting a little more use to Canyon and voluntarily sits and lays down by him!
