One of my biggest pet peeves is when the kids constantly get into the pantry, wanting snacks. And Abbi is big enough now that she can easily get into the pantry. So, I was at the store and they had some of the doorknob covers that were really cheap, so I thought I'd give it a try.
It was hilarious to watch her the first time she tried to open the door.She started out curious,
and then it turned to confusion,
and then she decided that it made her mad!!
But too bad she's too smart - after only a couple of minutes, she had it figured out that it's easier to take the whole thing off of the doorknob than to figure out how to use it.
I gues it's a good thing it only cost $1, because it was a wasted dollar!!

Field trip time!! My sisters and I had been talking about going to Tracy Aviary, and today was the day! We had originally planned on meeting for lunch, but the place we chose didn't have any seating. So we all did our own thing and then were supposed to meet up at the aviary.
We were a little bit earlier than everyone else, so we walked around the park and tried to take some pictures. Obviously, Abbi didn't really want to take any!
We finally went over and bought our tickets while we waited for everyone else. They all arrived, and we had fun going through to see all the different birds.
Kacy was a trooper. She had been on and off of bed rest, so she played it
It was probably 100 degrees that day, and I'll admit - kind of miserable. Even the non-pregnant people were miserable, so we cut our visit a little short and decided that we'll come back in the fall or spring!!
Since it was so hot, we headed to the park next door for the kids to play in the water. Abbi just loved it!! Even Easton loved getting wet.
I promised Abbi ice cream, so we stopped on our way out at the snack bar and she enjoyed her ice cream cone - although I think most of it ended up all over her!

Pregnancy makes you tired. Really tired. But as a mom, it's really hard to find the time for naps, so it's really rare that I get one. But, one day, while Easton was down, I decided to lay down on the couch for a few minutes while Abbi watched cartoons. I honestly don't know how long I was asleep, but I had to laugh a couple of days later when I discovered that she had gone crazy on my phone, taking (blurry) pictures of everything. She must be a budding photographer!!
She even managed to turn it over to the video, and we get a little concert!!
