Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer
Summer days around here can be summed up in two words: chalk & popsicles. We spend most of our days using sidewalk chalk and eating popsicles. Landon loves coloring with his chalk. He even tried to color on me and Tinkerbell!
Landon's other favorite summer time activity is eating a popsicle after a long, hot bike ride or after playing at the park. Publix recently had popsicles on sale for BOGO (buy one get one free) and I stocked up the freezer. I think we are set for at least two months with popsicles. For the past couple of months I have been placing a baking cup over Landon's popsicle stick to catch the drippings. I then discovered a popsicle holder at the store and have been in love with it ever since! It was one of the best purchases that I have made. I am no longer having to get on to Landon for trying to tear off the baking cup and having to clean up popsicle juice from the floor.
Landon, also known as "Landon Love" or "Love Bug" is our pride and joy. Landon is incredibly loving and is always giving the best hugs and kisses. Landon knows that he is adorable and uses it to his advantage. He knows the exact moment to flash his smile so that he is no longer in any trouble. Landon loves playing Candy Land, playing hide and seek, riding his bike and playing with Tinkerbell. His current favorite shows are Super Why, Jake and the Neverland Pirates and Caillou. He is obsessed with animals, Cars, and super heroes. Raising Landon these past three years has been quite an adventure and we couldn't imagine life without him.
These days I am best known as "Mommy". I am a snot wiper, boo boo kisser and a boogy monster chaser. I am a chef, a teacher, a nurturer and a comforter. I love taking daily walks, playing at the park with Landon and just enjoying my life as a mom. If by chance I happen to get a spare moment, then I enjoy filling that time by baking, reading, and scrapbooking. I live a very simple life that revolves around Landon and I would have it no other way.
Kevin is an amazing dad to Landon. He loves to play with Landon and read to him. Kevin enjoys spending his free time relaxing on the couch while watching ESPN, reading an occasional book, and cooking.
We consider Tinkerbell our first born. She is an absolutely adorable Pomeranian. Tinkerbell acts like a third parent to Landon and even barks when Landon is doing something that he should not be doing to get our attention. She is so loving and gentle to Landon, even when he is rough and tough with her. We couldn't ask for a better dog for Landon to grow up with.
