Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 32

This week, Joe went back to work, and Homer and I went back to lazing about at home. Except not really, because we had doctor’s appointments and parties to attend, and ice cream to go out and buy, so it was a mildly busy week for us. Take a look ~

Mon, Aug 6 ~ Monday was eye appointments for both Homer and me. This was Homer getting an Optimap photo taken, which is a large detailed photo of the eye. I thought it looked cool, so I took a photo of him and his giant eye next to him. That is not the final photo, btw, just a guide to make sure his eye is in the right spot! It was pretty fascinating.

Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 31

Mon, July 30 ~ After staying in Butte, Montana, we drove all the way through the top of Idaho and then stayed in Spokane overnight. Homer and I had gotten all dressed in our swimsuits, walked down to the first floor and looked next to the fitness room. The pool was mysteriously absent. I suddenly realized we hadn’t been to the pool the night we stayed in Spokane last time. We were at the same hotel, which we nicknamed Hogwart’s for its awesome spires and Hogwart’s-esque aesthetic:

I asked at the front desk, and sure enough – no pool at that hotel. Oops! Homer was really disappointed, naturally, so I tried to help him feel better by showing him around the fitness room, which he liked, and then I showed him the stationary bike, which he thought was awesome! He rode one mile on it, before we headed back upstairs to get back into normal clothes and play some video games instead. We also took a shower in the epic shower we had!! This thing had a great shower head, and jets, which were all adjustable separately. It was insane and amazing, and I loved it. I also let Homer just play around in it a bit, and enjoy getting sprayed by the jets for a bit after he got clean. Not quite as great as a pool, but still fun!

Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 30

Mon, July 23 ~ Monday was water park day! After visiting with Mama T in the morning, we headed on over. At first I just thought we were heading to a little splash pad / spray park, but once we got there, I realized it was a full-on water park and I hadn’t even brought my swimsuit. So I ran to Target and got a new one that I really love! Then I was able to get into the 4 ft wading pool with Homer, and ride the kiddie water slides, and it was a ton of fun. I loved snapping some shots of the kids. Here’s one of Winnie!

Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 29

Catch the Moment – ROAD TRIP EDITION!!! Epic Road Trip 2018 continues… Have you all ever gone on a long road trip? When I was a kid, probably about 11 years old (I think?), my whole family piled into our minivan and drove from San Antonio, Texas, to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! Then we spent a couple weeks there with my grandmother, and then drove back. I remember the drive out way better than the drive back. When we stopped in Texarkana, we stopped in a store and I saw Jelly Belly jelly beans for the very first time and fell in love with them! I also remember thinking Memphis was pretty. I have a lot of fond memories from the trip, and my hope for Homer was that he’d have a lot of great memories from this trip for himself, too. I’m excited I got to see a lot of states I’d never been to before, and excited it all went as well as it did!

Mon, July 16 ~ On Monday, we drove from Spokane, straight through Idaho, into Montana, and stopped in Billings. Idaho and Montana had so many beautiful trees! And I saw 4 bald eagles in Montana while driving!! This was the sunset view from the hotel once we stopped for the night.

Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 28

Hello, hello! I apologize for having a longer hiatus than intended! I’m back and will begin the catch up process for posting the last several weeks of Catch the Moment! The first is July 9-15, which turned out to be a week of mostly Homer pictures. 🙂 It only makes sense, he is my favorite subject, and my favorite little guy! On to the photos…

Mon, July 9 ~ This kid cracks me up!! He tried all the combinations he could think of for wearing his clothes. One foot through each arm hole of his shirt, his shorts on his head is what is pictured here:
