I've been slacking on this blog so badly! I have been working more and trying to squeeze in as much time as I can with Derek and Owen. So, without further ado... here's some cupcake fun!

My friend Morgan gave birth to her second beautiful baby girl on March 13th. Her favorite cupcake is from Indulge Cupcakes, the Red Velvet cupcake! So, before we went to visit her in the hospital Owen and I took a trip to Indulge to pick one up for her. I was excited to go and had been hearing about it from her and our friend Christy, who raves about it. When we got there it was so cute and comfy. Lots of cozy couches and awesome decor. Owen's eyes went straight to the cupcakes of course and we didn't get to leave without grabbing him one too. The girl working was just great with him. She added a little dinosaur on top, wrapped it up and he was so happy!

Here's his cupcake box
The cupcake fell over in transport to our house, but I'm sure it was still good

He went straight for the cookie dinosaur (if only the girl working knew how much he loves dinosaurs!)

diggin' in!

who needs hands?!

One satisfied customer!

Ice Skating!

We went ice skating today at Sprinker. We tried to get Owen pumped up for this so that he'll be a good little skater one day. His little skates were so cute! Just like his little bowling shoes... all those dorky shoes look super cute when they're tiny haha! He started out rough, and didn't want much to do with skating until he got better... then it was hard to get him off the ice! Anyways, here are some photos from our afternoon!

Owen in his skates... when he walked around he looked like a drunken sailor!
Derek had to help him out a lot, when he first got on the ice he was slipping all over the place

About an hour into our skate session Owen was doing really well. Check out the videos! Sorry they're sideways, I keep forgetting that I can't change the format after I've taken the video... so tilt your head and enjoy! ;]

On Sunday we decided to have a family fun day. We had zero plans and a whole day ahead of us. We had thought of taking Owen to a bounce house place, but none were open. Then we thought about ice skating or roller skating, but both were smack in the middle of Owen's nap. So, we decided to go bowling. I was kinda worried that Owen wouldn't get the concept of the game and taking turns, but he had so much fun! He waited for his turn like a big boy and was so excited to bowl. I got him a little 6 pound ball that was bright orange and he sure knew which one was his! Check out these shoes!!!!

They were so cute on him!

Owen with his arms up, excited to have rolled the ball!

He was so cute while waiting for his ball to come out (most of the time it was still slowly going down the lane!)

After our games were done we headed to the arcade in the bowling alley and Owen HAD to go on this ride!

We decided to make Sunday's our family fun day and do something like this each week. We enjoyed ourselves so much! We all came home and took naps (which is unlike Derek or I to do!)
Hopefully we'll have lots of Sunday adventures to post soon!
