Just watchin' the clouds roll by...

Today was a very long day... it didnt start out too good as I awoke with a horrible headache. I didnt even want to get out of bed I was that miserable. Good thing I was off work huh? LOL.. NOT, I wanted to be happy and bubbly on my day off! ;) I got up though and showered and then Hunter and I set off for our days adventures. I must say.. the kid was a pure angel. He was polite, respectful, helpful and really just a model child. {Where'd that come from? ;) hehe} He absolutely loves school and said he would miss it this long weekend. WOW.. love to hear that!!!

Anyway.. we started off the day with a little visit to my office. We really didnt do anything but sit and chit chat with the girls. Todd had mashed the tip almost off of his thumb earlier so that was quite the subject matter for us. Plus our agenda for the day. I know they were jealous of what laid ahead of us. hehehee

We went and grabbed lunch for Todd and took it to him since he was working through lunch trying to get a work project finished before the long weekend. Then back on the road we went.I had to take a necklace that I had bought back to Fashion Bug and a pair of earrings that I so embarrassingly bought 2 of a while back. {long story short, I thought they were actually 2 different pairs, but turns out 1 of the 2 were just turned around backwards... DUHH!!! haha} Hunter had a grand time helping me pick out a couple other necklaces and we were outta that joint!

Next stop.. the Pediatrician. O-M-Gosh... so dramatic! Hunter and I were the 1st ones there and it was so quiet in the waiting room. All the sudden a Policeman busts through the front door and runs to the back of the building. We see a ton of cops outside and hear sirens. I guess they had a back entrance and were in and out like that.. we never saw them again. I think someone had to be taken to the hospital ;( That was pretty wild, but all of the employees there seemed very calm.. except for Doc Joe.. he was very shook up you could just tell. He had a hard time getting focused on what he was doing. He gave Hunter a book-They always do!!! I just love this about them!!! Then did his physical. Hunter had grown THREE inches in the last year!! Doc Joe has always said Hunter was going to be a football player and reaffirmed it again today! Next, the sad part.. Hunter had to get 3 injections. The poor dude tried to be brave, but ended up crying a tad after one of the injections. I felt for him because they did look a little overwhelming. And guess what? He isnt done, he has 2 more next month.. this is a 3 step process getting him ready for school with the immunizations. whew!

I think he did pretty incredible and off we went to the *Halloween store*. Which was really the Dollar store hehee. Todd had been there the evening before to pickup some items and told us that they already had quite the Halloween collection out, so that got Hunter all kinds of pumped up. That would be his reward for doing well at the Pediatricians office. We found all kinds of scary candy that I went ahead and bought, an afro wig in black for his costume {to remain a secret} hehe and some window clings for my office. Hunter picked out a huge toy gun/Army kit, I must say it was very cool for the price! Also got a few necessities.. like the new Gain dish soap! I cant wait. Yes, I am excited. LOL

We came home.. changed clothes and headed out to do my most favorite part of the day... watch the clouds roll by!!!! We have a huge hill behind our house, so we took blankets and pillows and laid there and watched the beautiful clouds! Talked about the shapes and what clouds would taste like. Hunter says... soap! haha yuck! I say.. cotton candy! yum! We did that til I remembered that I wanted to try the tshirt bleaching that I found through Homemakers fabulous lil blog! I made one, Hunter made one and by the time we were finishing up my niece Alana came outside {they live next door} and she got to make herself one. For the first time I dont think we did terrible. I especially loved Alanas! I liked mine well enough to wear it out later when we went to dinner and shopping... so guess it wasnt too bad! ;) And even with his wounds Hunter found some time to jump around and act like a little boy. While we had been laying out on the hill he had said he wished we had a blanket to cover up with.. I truly think if we had he would have been out like a light!!! hehe The fresh breeze, Mom and the sun.. so beautiful!!!

Hunter used his Army men as stencils!

Alana and I used a metal decorative cross from my house! We plan to dazzle them up with fabric paints.. I think I'll try a different shirt though first!

Finally.. Todd came home and we all freshened up and headed out for Chinese.. after that JC Penney. I tell you.. I cannot stand our JC Penney! The one back home is out of this world.. but here BLAH I say.. just BLAH. I never find any REAL bargains and I always end up irritated and sweaty by the time I leave. Tonight was no different. Todd and Hunter were even clamouring to get the heck out of there. But we did manage to get Todd some new jeans and Hunter a pair of flip flops on clearance, some new undies and a tshirt. By the time we left there it was 9pm and Hunter was begging to go home and just go to bed. And that is exactly what we did!

What a full, full day!!! :) Thank you for letting me share it with you! I know Im long winded, but it is 2am and I cant sleep now LOL.. maybe Im over tired???

Have a great weekend!!! ;O)

Wow that was quite a day! The shirts are awesome. :) Poor little Hunter, and what a weird experience at the doc's! I think of him when I visit my 1st year old's class, cuz there is a kiddo named Trenton who looks just like him! I'm gonna try to take a picture with my phone next time I'm in (on the sly?!) and send it to you. lol
