Atticus and I have had a busy and eventful past few weeks now that have carried us right into April.
Easter is over and we enjoyed a quiet day here at home, eating candy and playing, then enjoyed a family dinner outside on the deck in the beautiful weather we had. Later on we got the chance to go see our extended family of cousins and 2nd cousins and played, which was a blast, I was just glad to have the day off.
We got invited to an Easter egg hunt the day before Easter by a little neighborhood boy, and had a great time doing that. There were a lot of children his age, and the hunt was well done as a scavenger hunt too. There was a lot to snack on, and we both were glad we got the chance to go
The past few days we have been enjoying the weather by playing out back a lot more than usual, washing my car, and visiting the park. I personally have been able to ride to work which I love and hate. I have been doing some night jogging with my new Zombies, Run app too which is fun, as you get chased by zombies.
During spring break my mother and sister and niece went on vacation to L.A., so it was just my father and I here holding the house down. We decided to take Atticus to the the new local aquarium in hopes to see a lot of exciting new stuff. When we first arrived, it was noticeably busy, as it WAS spring break. We decided to tough it out anyways. Inside there was some really interesting stuff from the sting rays, sharks and octopus, yet it was hard to really get a spot up against the tanks to see the exhibits. I was really expecting a lot more stuff, yet the place is still new and growing. The experience may have been a bit different if it had not been so busy.
We had his brother and sister over for two days during spring break as well as a way to help their dad and Danimum with child care and as a way to get the kids together to play. Atticus was so happy to have them over, to show them all of his things, and mostly joke around and just spend time with them. It was great for me because I was able to do some stuff I wanted to do around the house without having my little shadow constantly on my heels.
I got the chance to go enjoy myself with my friends and see some live music for the first year of the annual Treefort Music Fest which took place here in downtown Boise. It was a lot of fun, and it is nice every once and awhile to leave Atticus at home with my parents while I get out and do some Kyle stuff. I had a blast dancing, visiting with friends and meeting new people, and am excited for next year's Treefort.
I decided to go with a new haircut style for Atticus during his last trip to the barber. I went there with the intentions of having her just shave it all off but after she completed shaving the sides, and while the top was still long, I was looking at him and it hit me that this was an awesome way to keep his hair. He was doing a duck face pouty kiss thing with his lips and looked like a male fashion model. Maybe this was all in my head I decided, but I asked the lady cutting his hair; 'Maybe it's just me or does his hair look really good like it is now?' She agreed, and after she cleaned it up just a bit her and I both really got a kick out of it. Only hard thing now is where before I rarely ever combed his hair, I now have to use a lot of product to keep his hair looking good, as he has that strong swirly calic.
