Daniel and Flat Stanley

Today has been a really fun day. First of all, I spent it with Daniel so that always makes it better.

Daniel got in on our squat challenge last night and has been doing squats all day and every place we went! And, he has pretty good form. πŸ™‚ He said he’s going for the world record of 1000 squats but admitted he made that record up and has no idea what the record is. He possibly did 500 or 600 of them today!

This year is the 250 birthday of St. Louis and 250 artist made cakes (not real) are all over the city so we went and hunted and found many of them. Flat Stanley helped.

My niece, Maggie mailed us a Flat Stanley to take around St. Louis so Stanley went with us. If you don’t know what a Flat Stanley is, check out the link. He visited the St. Louis Arch, Busch Stadium, Forest Park, The Muny….and many other places.

I got a lot of exercise this weekend but I did not eat very well and I did fall off the wagon on “No Sweets” challenge. I helped Daniel eat his frozen yogurt with goodies piled on the top. I’ll get back on the horse tomorrow.

We spend 5 hours out in the sunshine with my favorite person in the world, Daniel.

As a warning for those who don’t know, when you take a 6 year old boy to an Art Museum, be prepared for him to point out (sometimes loudly) all the butts and boobs he sees. πŸ™‚

It was good to see Daniel and Sadie this weekend. That always makes my week better.

~Good Night~

  1. Oh my gosh! I wondered if Flat Stanley was still being taken on adventures! My niece and nephews always sent him to us to take around. It was so much fun! Looks like he had a great time in St. Louis!!!! πŸ˜€
