Sweet Suite!

 Matt and I were lucky enough to get to attend a Brewers game in the box suite again this year.  The big difference between last year and this year is 1) I'm not pregnant 2) The Brewers are busy Winning! 
 Awesome view!

 I'm such a dork.  But seriously, who wouldn't want one of these?

 Ryan Braun... so dreamy.

I am the queen of bodily fluids

7:30 Get Oliver out of bed and he is soaked from his belly button down to his ankles.  Get him showered and in clean clothes.  Put Curious George on so I can feed Hazel.
7:45  Oliver pees all over the couch
7:47  Lay Hazel on the ground (with out burping her first) to clean up urine soaked couch (Sooooo grateful for leather).  Hazel pukes all over the rug.
7:49  While cleaning up puke Oliver decides to make his way to the bathroom to empty the rest of his bladder (is this child a Camel or what?!), which would be a good thing except he decided to pee standing up.  Now there is pee all over the floor and the front of his second shirt is soaked.  Give him a potty treat anyway.
8:00  Make oat bran cereal... can you guess where Oliver's breakfast ended up?  
8:15  Changing Oliver's oat bran covered clothes.
On the up side we went for a catastrophe free walk followed by a prompt poopie in the big boy potty!
This rack was intended to be decorative.  It has strictly become a drying rack for airing out of bodily fluids *sigh*

Posh Party

Matt and I were invited to a congratulatory celebration for one of the Doctors he works with who was nominated for president of ASTRO (a super big deal in the radiation oncology world).  This was quite the party.  It's location was on the rooftop of a private-downtown-members-only-super swanky building...valet parking included. Toward the end of the evening guess who strolled in... none other than the Mayor of Milwaukee.  If I would have known I was going to be in such high company I would have made a point to shave my armpits.

How I Know I'm Getting Old

First sign of aging:
I get excited when my children have a good poopie everyday
I get excited when I have a poopie everyday.
When Matt gets home I ask him
"How was your day?"
"Did you go poopie today?" 
-absolutely it was awesome. How about you? 
As you can see Matt is my co-conspirator in aging.

Second sign of aging:
Lame-o hobbies ie coin collecting (no offense Phil).
Our idea of a romantic evening is cracking open a box of dimes (a box contains 2,500 dimes) and searching for those rare 90 percenters (if you don't know what I am talking about you are obviously neither old or lame).  I am quite fond of the occasional Mercury head dime.

Third sign of aging:
I am genuinely thrilled when Oliver and I come across a new episode of Curious George that we have not seen before.  At the moment there are 43 episodes on my DVR.  I don't save them for Oliver, I save them for me so I don't have to watch the same one over and over, I like a little variety in my day.  That little monkey makes me smile.

Forth sign of aging:
Those pesky gray hairs that are making themselves at home on my temples.  I pull them out and try to pretend they don't exist but I have heard that for every gray you pluck, three more show up to it's funeral.  My head has become a funeral home of constant mourning.  So so sad.

Our Super Awesome Vacation to Idaho!

We had a wonderful time in Idaho and Utah this last week.  It was so wonderful to see family and for Oli-pop and Miss Hazel to play with their cousins.  We went to the Zoo, Bear World, played in the water, had lots of good food and lots of good fun!  Oliver learned how to jump off of high objects, forgot how to use the toilet (sorry about the poop on the carpet Grandma Tina), and learned some important water gun skills.  Hazel was constantly entertained by Sara and Ella. She was all smiles.  We got to bless Hazel with cousin Roman.  Matt gave her a beautiful heartfelt blessing.  Another high point was seeing my grandparents and sisters who I have not seen in over a year.  Time goes by way too fast!
