never a moment's rest

We three Parkses were busy this weekend.

We took a walk to Butler Park for some fun at the Liz Carpenter fountain. Supposedly all the splash pads and fountains in Austin shut down today which is ridiculous since it'll be hot as hell for another few months.

I got a new necklace from Old Navy and I love it. In fact I love it so much I included some porno tongue in the picture.

We also hit up Pease Park for some sliding fun. Tru was exhausted but rallied for the twisty slide.

We headed to the Children's Museum where Tru did some suduko. No matter how many times I explained it to him, he kept lining up three spades in one column. I guess Harvard is off the list of possible schools.

This is what I spend most of my time looking at, the back of Truman as he bolts onto the next thing.

I wore cute shoes.

Tru napped.

I wished I napped but instead the framer finished our pictures so we got to hanging. This one is about your mom:

And this is Tru's newest robot print.

(Both prints are from this etsy shop)

After his nap there was more water fun.

Tonight we had dinner and Tru and jparks shared a meal. The picture does not do the situation any justice at all as the two of them had a full out eating contest. Tru shoveled food in as fast as possible because he was starving which made jparks worry that there wouldn't be any left for him so he started shoveling it in as well. This continued all the way through to dessert where I finally had to explain to jparks that he's the adult and is quite capable of getting a second helping so there's no need to worry about a toddler stealing all of it. I think someone had his lunches stolen on the playground a few times as a kid and is working through those issues as an adult.

And now I'm off to drag my tired ass to bed.


  1. Could be I just took some cold medicine, but I laughed so hard at "this one is about your mom" I startled the cat napping on my printer.

    Looks like a super fun weekend.

    That boy sure is cute!

  2. looks fun! i love the profile shot of tru napping! He didn't walk when I saw you two last....sigh...

    miss yous

  3. Love all the pictures! Looks like you guys are having fun in Austin. :)

  4. Looks like a very Austin-y day. And I too am in denial that they're shutting the splash pads already. SUCKS.

  5. I got tired just READING this. You do more in 1 afternoon than I have in the last 35 years.

  6. He looks so tiny on that slide!

    So adorable, that Tru!
