The Week of D

The second week of November is when our teachers have their convention, it also happened to be Election Week and the week of Ventran's Day. So D found himself with a week off of school! H in daycare meant no days off for him and that's the way we liked it. This way D and I got the chance to make up on some of our alone time, which we now don't get much of, even if it was just a few hours.

We baked! 







These marshmallow cupcakes were very good. I used store bought cake mix.. used only half and still ended up with 12 cupcakes! While I followed the recipe to the T.. the marshmallows didn't melt like they was supposed to and roasted instead.. 

We played board games and worked on a puzzle. 210 itty bitty pieces.



Friday M took the day off and we headed to the Camden Adventure Aquarium. The last time we were at the aquarium D was a year and a half.

here's a D throwback and more from that trip here



and there was a mermaid in the tank swimming with the sharks!!




 afterwards we went to Collingswood to visit The Arctic Freeze Creamery.. home of the rolled ice cream!


We capped off the week of fun with Trolls on Saturday and impromptu game of bowling with friends on Sunday.

Sounds like a great week together. When Anna has days off from school, she still goes to childcare because I have to work. Would love to spend a few one on one days with her though.

What a great way to spend the week with the little one:)

That rolled ice cream is so trippy! How sweet to have some one on one time with your oldest son. The firstborns do tend to come second since the little ones needs more time. Excellent job on those cupcakes!
