Five On Friday!

This is my first time to join in on the Five on Friday fun!  

I am absolutely loving all of the pharmacists Tim works with.  We get together each Thursday night for Taco Thursday.  Each couple takes turns hosting and it is seriously a blast!  Everyone gets along so well, including all the spouses, and we just have a fun time talking, eating, and sometimes playing games.  It's nice to have a group to just hang out.  

Yesterday, we went to the grocery store and right before I got out of the car to unload the boys, I looked back and saw them trying to reach each other. They are good about sharing their snacks and things by reaching across the middle seat but this time they were just trying to hold hands.  It was so precious!  When they finally got a hold of each other's hand, they both giggled.  I love little moments like that between my boys.

Speaking of little moments, Robby has started taking it upon himself to give Charlie little lessons on the proper way to do things.  It's hilarious to hear from another room, "No, Charlie, we don't open that door" or "Charlie, be gentle with that".  Last week, they were hanging out at the bottom of the stairs and Charlie was asking for Daddy.  Robby said, "Daddy's at work, Charlie, he's not here.  He is working with pills."  It's just cute to hear him explain things in his tiny voice.  And it's also cute to watch Charlie looking at Robby with his big blue eyes listening so intently.  

Charlie is getting really good at communicating what he wants.  He's pretty clear, but generally sticking with one word at a time (except for "thank you" and "bye-bye").  He will also repeat what Robby says, same inflection and tone, but in gibberish, but he hasn't actually started saying sentences.  This morning, Tim was getting ready in the bathroom and Charlie went in saying "Hi, Daddy!  Hi, Daddy!  Hi, Daddy!"  I got so excited because it was his first sentence!  A small one, yes, but it's a start.

I'm thinking about making a weekly beauty post.  Either covering one of my favorite products or a particular look I like.  What do you think?  I'm going to try to be more organized with my blogging so I will be more consistent.

Major catch up time!

We have been really busy since we got here and blogging hasn't really been on my mind!  Getting out and exploring has been our number one priority while the weather has been nice.  We were told that the entire month of September is rainy and it's looking like most of August is like that as well.  Here is a quick rundown of what we've been doing!

We went on a hike at Lake Eklutna.

We went to Seward to check out the aquarium.

We made new friends.

We went to Mirror Lake.

We had a visit from Aunt Mandy.

We went to Robby's first movie in a theater.

We went to the zoo.

We visited a reindeer farm.

We celebrated Tim's 29th birthday.

It is so beautiful up here!  I'm ready to stay here forever but Tim told me I need to make it through a winter first before I start scheming ways for us to stay!
