We have been soaking up the days of summer. It goes by so fast so I’ve been trying to be really aware about making the most of each day even if it’s just staying at home and hanging out. Me and Elias did have a mini little vacation with my mom and sister Kylie. We drove up to North Carolina to drop Kylie off with some cousins to stay for a couple weeks and we made a pit stop in Atlanta on the way there and then again on the way back. Elias is a total road-trip trooper! I was so proud of him…he was so well behaved. It may or may not have had something to do with Paw Patrol being on repeat on an iPad almost the entire trip. Regardless, he hardly whined, slept, ate his snacks and was just an all around awesome traveler. It was a lot of riding in four days for a toddler but he took it like a champ! We made it worth his while at the Georgia Aquarium and then at the Children’s Museum of Atlanta. He loved both places and wore himself out running around and exploring!
Here are some pics from the aquarium. He was ALL OVER the place and I really tried to just enjoy being there with him so I didn’t get many but he loved it 🙂
On the way back we hit the children’s museum and it was a HUGE hit. Me and Brent have been considering taking Elias back sometime soon. He LOVED it!!! There was so much to do..so many hands on activities for him to explore and so many places to climb and play. I wish we lived closer!
Elias was soooo tired and ready for a nap..hence the picture where he is throwing a fit on the floor because I wouldn’t let him climb on the tables ! Also, posed pictures are a thing of the past. I am VERY lucky if I catch him looking at the camera or even in the general direction of the camera.
Those are really the most exciting things we have done so far. We’ve hung out at home A LOT. I am enjoying being laid back and not having much of an agenda.
We got a tiny little pool big enough for me to lay in a float on but not too big for E and that is mainly where we have been spending a lot of our time! Elias loves it!!
