Day In The Life

Recently Tales of an Unlikely Mother challenged everyone to do a Day In The Life (DITL).  It's been years since I've done one, I used to do them all the time when I was in college and on the Photo Service staff.   We went out to the Berkshires this weekend to see my in laws so I figured it was a perfect time to do a DITL.


 I wake up to this sight.  Both my boys are sacked out.   I got up and used the bathroom.
 By the time I get back into the room my boys are waking up.  I love the bed head.
 After we take a few minutes to wake up and say good morning to Nana and Grandpa we have breakfast. 
 I run downstairs to start the diaper wash.  I also tell my Mother In Law that the washer is covered in lint.
 We went out to run errands.  When we got to the mall we realized it was lunch time.  Garrett is enjoying his disemboweled Subway sandwich.
 And misunderstands the point of "running errands".  We let him walk around the mall for a bit to work off some energy.  It isn't very crowded.
 We pass a place that does hair cuts for kids.  He needed one pretty badly so we stop in to get his hair cut before running our errands at Target (which is in the mall).
 We get home and find not only did Nana put the diapers in the dryer but she has started to fold them.  Randy is checking it out.  Poor dog is terrified of the baby.
 Garrett grabs a snack and chills out with Grandpa.  Running errands is tiring work.
 There is a snow squall outside so we hang out inside for a little while longer.
 Then it's time to feed the horses before we head out to meet Garrett's god parents for dinner.
 Garrett enjoys dinner at Panera with "Uncle" James and "Aunt" Glenda (who didn't make it into the shot).  We spent 3 hours chatting and having fun with Garrett.
 Back to Nana and Grandpa's.  It's snowing again and you can see the string of lights up on the Jiminy Peak ski area from their house. 
I'm tired and head right to bed.

There wasn't that much snow from the flurries, but there is a ton on the ground already..

What a fun trip! I love the disemboweled sandwich...I can relate on so many levels! I saw you on Tales of an Unlikely Mother's DITL.
