Aeries Spends the Weekend

Carwashes are scary... I mean fun!

Chocolate waffles!!

Hmmm, it appears these plants need watering.

Planting corn with Gma Rose.

Making cookies with Gma Rose. What a super-fun day!!

Woo hoo!!!

Pouring her heart and soul into the one-finger sonata.

Um, kinda busy right now.

I'm helping Gma fold the laundry. What's it look like I'm doing?

This carpet is slowing me down.

I'd say our snail hunt was a success.

Stop Talking Nonsense

  1. Let's stop calling headaches migraines. Everybody gets a headache now and then. Migraines are a very serious condition that incapacitate a person and require treatment.
  2. Let's stop calling the blues depression. Everybody gets the blues now and then. Depression is a very serious illness that requires treatment.
  3. Let's stop calling being moody being bipolar. Being a bit moody now and then is completely normal. Being bipolar (a.k.a. manic-depression) is a very serious thing that requires treatment.
  4. Let's stop calling rooms spaces.
  5. Let's stop calling how much something costs a price point.

Aeries Visits the Boeing Museum of Flight

Well, when you are 5 years old it's pretty much 'you've seen one airplane you've seen them all'. But on the bright side there were lots of REALLY big echo-y rooms that you could run around in.

Aeries' best preschool buddy Madison was there too, so the two of them had a lot of fun together.

Much of the afternoon consisted of pushing buttons,

trying to open locked doors,

and making good use of the space.

Aeries thought the little movie about WWI airplanes
was interesting. Madison couldn't have cared less.

Wow, Air Force One. Big whoop-dee ding dong.

Aeries hated this the moment she got up there.
She couldn't get down fast enough.

Hey! Look how much water I drank!

Aeries and I stopped in a little park on the way back to eat lunch and climb on stuff.

Aeries Sings On the Way Home

Driving home from the pre-school field trip...and a stop in the park, and some lunch... Aeries broke into song. Our happy little ragamuffin.

Aeries Goes to Silver Lake


Girl talk.

Cherry popsicle lips.

"Higher! Higher! Higher!

Heading back to the car with a muddy bottom.

Aeries Goes on a Worm Hunt
