Beach Birthday

Two weeks on the beaches of North Carolina:

-a 3rd birthday with Lightning McQueen cake
-lots of time with Grandma
-a great trip to the aquarium
-a children's museum
-eating out lots
-walks on the beach (some were warm, some were very windy and cold)
-a train museum

(It's spinach pasta)

Birthday dinner and beginning of Charlie's love for spinach.

Charlie did very well this birthday. A big tool o-bento box (on the table)...

and a Superman cape!!

He sure had fun with this one. Very nicely made by his Grammy. Everyone at the hotel recognized him as Superman.

Things no mom ever wants to hear:

"Watch this, mom, I can fly!" (As he jumps off the couch flapping his arms. The funny part was that he was seriously surprised that he didn't just soar into the sky like he had imagined instead of hitting the ground abruptly.)

"Hey, look what I found in my underwear" (His missing penny)

Baby awake at 5:30 am and not going back to sleep AND on your vacation!

When does the first time try ever turn out so cute?

I've had so much fun doing these! I've never felted before and I was surprised at how easy it was, though I had to borrow my friend's top-loading washing machine (I have a front loader)--Thanks, Colleen! Pattern and credit goes to designer,

At this point, the faith of felting is what keeps you going.

Oh my gosh, it worked!!

And here is the finished product.

Can you see my puff paint gripies?

They are so soft and comfortable and I am LOVING them!
