So Dramatic

Our eat-anything boy turned a little picky today.  Perhaps it was my mistake feeding him blueberry pancakes for breakfast and a blueberry coffee cake muffin as a snack.  When I put rice and vegetables to his lips he very dramatically scrunched his face and clutched his chest with both hands as if to say, "how dare you!  What are you trying to feed me!?  Where is my blueberry pastry!"  Despite the frustration of slaving over the stove to have him turn his nose up at his food, it was pretty hilarious.

We attempted to catch it on camera, but this is as close as we got.  It doesn't really fully capture it, so you'll have to use your imagination.  He couldn't clutch his chest with BOTH hands because he had a cheerio in his right hand at the time.

Cheerios, Mom.  Only Cheerios.

ACL: Day 3?

Nah!  Hope everyone had fun!  We stayed in, did mundane errands, and took naps. :)

ACL Festival: Day 2!

We made it through day 2! We biked there and back (after driving within about 2 miles from the park), and this time Everett did fantastic. The difference this time: his magical Grandma-made blankie came along for the ride. He sucked his thumb, held the blankie tight, and enjoyed the great ride. :) Thanks Mom, for making that blankie and weaving all the love into it.

I will say though that our chosen path to get to the park, in an effort to avoid cars, involved carrying the bike trailer over streams, rocks, and sand. Oops. Thanks to strong Dada it all worked out.

One cool thing that happened - a lady came up to us and said she saw us yesterday, and Everett was so cute rocking out on his Daddy's shoulders. With the 60,000 people there, that's pretty amazing that we saw an E admirer the following day.

I'm exhausted! Will the third and final day of the festival see the Keahey family? We will see!

Dances with Wolves

Wolf Blitzer that is!

Mommy's Garden Helper

From crawling into the sprinkler, to digging in the dirt, I can't keep this boy out of nature.

Helping with a little weeding and bed prep.
Having fun.

Austin City Limits Festival: Day 1

ACL Fest is a huge Austin live music tradition attracting tens of thousands to the city and the festival.  I got a smashing good deal on some tickets last year, so we took Everett down to his second ACL.  Second, you say?  He attended last year in utero.  8 months in utero!  :)

Getting to ACL is always a challenge with the tens of thousands descending on Zilker park.  We always try not to kill each other and vow to never go again when trying to get out of the place to go home.  Rather than tackle the crazy shuttle buses this time though, we packed up the bikes and the bike trailer, drove downtown, then biked a few miles to the park.  I thought it was great fun, but Everett cried the whole way.  And the whole way back.  *sigh*  BUT - at the festival, he was a rockstar!  Strangers were taking his picture.  Several people came up and said how awesome he is and how great it was that we took him.  Yea!  I thought so too!  :)  He danced, he clapped, he watched the stage.  He even took a nap during the first part of Vampire Weekend, which was an amazing show. 

Don't let this face fool you.  He cried hard when this thing was in motion!

Waiting patiently for Dad to lock up the bikes.

Our bike lock-up.  It was hard to get the lock around everything.  ha!

We weren't the only ones that chose to bike there.

Enjoying his first concert (Spoon).  Like the ear handles?
