The other day I finally bought some beans and completed our construction box. I figured this would be a new fun and inexpensive idea (and it was...thanks Pinterest!). And I figured it would easily entertain Gavin for a bit while I cleaned the house (and it did...only not in the way I expected).

I meant to write a special post about Gavin back in February when I wrote about Owen. And it turns out I had no photos of Gavin to share. None! How sad is that? The post just fell by the wayside. But my love for Gavin has not. So I'll finally say a few things about Gavin the Great.

I was amazed to see the growth of Owen and really all the boys on the team. Most of them had very little experience playing, and were clueless as to the rules/positions of the game. But by the season's end they were completing all sorts of plays. It was so much fun to watch!
Another team, another trophy. I don't think it ever gets old for Owen. It was a great season with mild weather, fun coaches, and energetic boys. Flag football was a good experience. I'm a fan!

After a lot of talk, much waiting, and an insurmountable amount of coordinating...we finally did it! We managed to get away on a couples retreat! And I'm so glad we did. We met up with our Boston friends and our Bountiful friends to cruise to the Bahamas.
After we arrived back at our port in Florida, we had some time to kill before flying back home. So we took an air boat ride through the everglades in search of alligators. I was amazed at how the air boat maneuvered through tall plants and marshy areas with ease. We got to see a handful of gators on our ride and even got to take turns holding a small one that was 4 years old. (Another activity my boys would have loved.)

There are so many fun and clever Valentine ideas out there. Every time I pick up a magazine or look online I find another idea that is cuter than the last. Valentine treats. Valentine sweets. Valentine cards. Valentine food. Valentine TOMS (would LOVE a pair!).

Three things about Owen that make me smile.
First, you must know that Owen requires A LOT of bathroom breaks when we're on roadtrips. So to avoid a number of stops we have been known to let Owen pee in a bottle once or twice. (Too much information? Well just wait.) So on our most recent trip home from Southern California we made use of an empty Gatorade bottle to take care of Owen's business. And somehow the bottle got left in the car after we unloaded our things.
The next day I picked Owen up from school and headed inside the house with Gavin. Owen lingered in the car for a moment or two, then bounded through the front door and made a beeline to the kitchen saying, "I need a drink of water!"
Okay, I thought. He must be really thirsty. It didn't even hit me until about a half hour later when Owen hesitantly said, "Mom, I drank my own pee."
