In this case, I think two is enough.
I discovered these last Fall and decided to bring them back this year.
That is... the candles. Not the cute kid, horse or computer. This just so happens to be my view from my desk.
My favorite candle smell from last year was called Autumn. LOVE. When Bath and Body Works had them on sale a couple weeks ago, I knew I had to go in and at the very least get some Autumn to bring on the season, but I found a new smell that I love equally as much.
The new addition to my candle collection this year is called "Acorn and Fig". I was pleasantly surprised with how awesome it smells. Normally, it stays in the kitchen, but since I'm at my desk now, that is where it sits.
I also got these cute little holders because I think they really dress them up, and I can't resist a good owl.
So, that's what my house smells like this season, and no, I'm not being paid to say this... just thought I'd share the love. (Blake looked over at me a few minutes ago and said, "Are you blogging about candles?" Yes. Yes I am.)
I'm a little... or a lot... behind on getting these pictures online. This was from the same trip as the previous pictures with the yellow truck.
One morning, we took Egan to see some life-size dinosaurs that aren't too far from where my parents live. Egan had a blast, and even as I type this is RAVING about the dinosaurs. Truth be told, he was a bit intimidated by their large size and many teeth, but he warmed up by the end.
The various kinds of dinosaurs were scattered around the landscape lining a walkway. At each turn, there was something new to see.
Here was a family of stegosaurus.
A baby something else. (I truly can't remember all the names. Some of them look so similar to me!)
Egan even wore his dinosaur shirt for the occasion.
This is the Jurassic Park version of the above dinosaur. They added the colorful fins for dramatic effect.
They had several dinosaurs surrounding this pond. The colors here are true. Gross!
This was Egan's favorite, the triceratops. I'm not sure why, but every time I ask him... this is what he picks.
... and finally the king of the dinosaurs, TRex. Egan was very nervous at this point and didn't trust he wasn't going to come to life and "get him".
It was a fun morning spent in the age of the dinosaurs, and one Mr. Egan won't soon forget.
Here's another fun thing from our stay.
There are tons of deer where the grandparents live. I mean they are EVERYWHERE, and a friend of my parents feed them, so we took egan to see some deer up close.
They slowly came up after the food was thrown.
One night we saw about 5, but I think there are normally close to a dozen!
Since Blake had a super busy work week last week, Egan and I went out to hang out with his grandparents for a few days. While there, we took Egan out to take his picture with Grandad's truck. I've been wanting to take his picture with this truck since I first saw it. It was well worth the wait.
I think this one below might be my favorite. I think we have trouble on our hands!
Egan has recently come up with this CRAZY fake laugh where you don't know for sure if he is totally laughing or laughing and crying.
When taking pictures of two year olds, sometimes the best thing that can happen is a truck driving by. "Look, a truck!"
We let Egan hop in the driver's seat of "Tow Mater" (as he calls it) to snap a few more pics and let him honk the horn although he declared it was "broken" and "needed batteries" when it was a little too hard to push.
Having a two year old is never dull, but taking a picture of a busy two year old is a crazy adventure!
