Here’s a recap from our day today– approximately 6:30 AM to 6:30 PM. Ready? GO!
6:30: I wake up, head downstairs, and pour myself a glass of iced coffee. Mal is getting ready for school. Quinn is still sleeping, and I’m not sure what to do with myself. I’m rarely ever awake before him!
My laptop is starting to die (it actually kicked the bucket for good tonight), so I saved a bunch of the important stuff onto an external hard drive.
7:15 AM: Quinn wakes up. (Wow, he slept late!) We cuddle on the couch together. He eats a banana and drinks some milk while I enjoy a bowl of crock-pot steel-cut oatmeal with almond butter.
8:00 AM: We play, play, play!
9:30 AM: My sister and Matthew visit. The cousins play together while my sister and I catch up.
10:00 AM: We visit the South Shore Natural Science Center.
Quinn really loves the turtles.
He even gets to meet a Snapping Turtle up close and personal!
While there, we also visit the chickens. Cluck cluck!
11:15 AM: We visit the cows at Hornstra Farms. We also buy milk and ice cream (obviously).
12:00 PM: We stop by Gunther Tooties for coffees. Quinn falls asleep on the drive home, so I put him down for a nap.
12:15 PM: We’re hungry when we get home, so I break out some snacks.
1:00 PM: Lunch is served. I make bacon and cheese omelets and root vegetable fries for everyone. (My sister is 7 months pregnant and craved eggs and fries, so that’s exactly what we had!)
2:45 PM: Quinn wakes up from his nap. We cuddle on the couch and watch Paw Patrol. Then, he eats lunch.
3:30 PM: We take Murphy for a walk.
4:15 PM: We arrive home. Mal gets home 5 minutes later. We chat. I fill him in on our day. We play with Quinn.
5:15 PM: I head down to the basement to do a workout.
5:45 PM: I take a shower and then whip up dinner.
6:30: PM: Time to eat! I eat a roasted acorn squash with leftover root veggie fries, chickpeas, rice, broccoli, and Mama Pea’s “Mmm Sauce” on top. (It might not look pretty, but it was deeeelicious!)
