Well life around here has been pretty B-O-R-I-N-G! Poor Maeve, I've been just completely exhausted and therefore our days consists of doing....not much. We've been waking up around 8 or so, I make breakfast (lately Maeve has been loving bananas & raisin toast), and then its reading books, playing in our tiny house & watching Disney allllll morning long- YIKES. Lunch is around 11:30 or 12, and then comes a bath & nap time (so we got Maeve off the bottles but the only way to get her to sleep is giving her a bath- so now she gets 2 baths- one before nap and one before bed. She's a clean baby!). This past week I've been sleeping through her naps instead of doing the thousand things that need to be done around here. Its like any energy I once had has been completely sucked out! I'm blaming the weather... and that's what leads me to the point of this post- COUNTDOWN!!!

We officially have less than TWO WEEKS until vacation!!!!! I am SO excited!!! :) And yes, Ryan & I are counting down the days. Our last Disney trip (in October '08) was one of the best trips I've ever taken- and that was only for 4 days. So I have great expectations for our 10 day trip! We're planning on going to Universal for 2 days, visiting my grandma in Crescent City for 3 days and spending 5 days in St. Augustine. I already have a handful of restaurants that we HAVE to go to and an ever growing list of activities. I think what I am most excited for is to have 10 days AWAY from Jackson and out of this house. I am just soooo sick of sitting here each and every day while the weather decides to be either freezing or slightly freezing.

Oh- this is a bit of topic, but we did end up taking Maeve to the museum (Ann Arbor's Hands ON) this past weekend. She had a good time in the toddler room- now I guess the question would be, was it worth 18.00? Hmmm...NO. I was actually pretty disappointed with the place. There really wasn't much for Maeve to do besides play in the toddler room and that was just like a glorified nursery. Maybe the reason I didn't like it very much is because this past summer we just happened to go to the BEST hands on kids museum EVER (in Boston). But whatever the reason, I don't think we'll be going back anytime soon. Chelsea Treehouse (which is WAY cheaper and WAY closer) offers SO much more for her.

Thats all for now! :)

We love the TreeHouse too! Avah has had both of her bday parties there. The people are awesome and its so clean! I'm so jealous that you get to go to warm sunny Florida. Hope you have a great time!

Sorry to hear you guys didn't care for AAHOM. I've gone a few times... awhile back with the 2 little girls I used to nanny and then again last year when Porter had just turned 2. Even though he didn't understand 90% of the exhibits he had a lot of fun just dinking around with things. Maybe next year Maeve will enjoy the rest of the museum a little more.

Have fun in Florida... I wish I were heading somewhere warm!!

I am super jealous of your florida trip-- we were supposed to go in October but it doesn't look like that's going to happen this year. So I am hoping for next spring. And if it makes you feel any better I have been beyond exhausted lately myself!
