The Prince of Puke

My mother saved the day this week. Finn waffled wildly between the flu and his typical ‘active toddler’ self, I panicked about work, and she fielded my 7:30 a.m. calls for help like she was already halfway over to babysit. Just another refrain of motherly love.

In other news, they still think rainy days are exciting because they get to wear puddle boots and carry an umbrella.

After all the rain, Jason had some extra help to mow the super high grass and sweep the clippings.

Finn and Thea planted some of my Mother’s Day flowers.

She wadded the paper kindling for Jason’s first fire pit fire of the season.

Finn practiced climbing up the slide.

We tried to eat dinner around the fire pit but the wood kindling was still too damp from the rain, so the fire was a smoky one.

On Saturday morning, Finn’s tummy problems had returned and he watched as Thea left to attend a friend’s birthday party.

It was an incredible party at Skyzone, the rocking trampoline place that all the kids love.

Later, after swim classes, we walked down to Artsfest along the riverfront.

There was a big brass band that made everybody smile.

Finn and Thea ate Kettle Korn popcorn (and left lots for the birds).

“Look, Mom! Crisscross applesauce,” she yelled as we drove to family breakfast at Cracker Barrel.

As we waited for family, Jason tried to teach them about checkers.

Then it was back to Artsfest in Harrisburg!

She cheered up when we got close to the live music at Kunkel Plaza.

Thea got her face painted in the Popcorn Hat Players tent.

She was a little sad when the kids around her got called on stage, but she didn’t.

She chose a ceramic rainbow to paint, while Finn ate a hotdog bun (but no hotdog).

Orange paint in her hair!

Finn was thrilled to cross paths with his pal, Douglas.

“Let’s pet some more doggies, Momma!”

Thea took in a magic show.

At home, she showed me her rainbow and found the perfect spot to put it, in her room.

While the guys napped, she painted her wooden dolls.

And we snuck off to Bamboo for some frozen yogurt.

On Monday morning, she practiced her ukelele and sang along to Nathan & Eva’s version of Budapest.

Nonna brought over the Fashion Plates from my childhood, and we compared them to the new version that Thea and I found recently. Mostly, the old one includes a lot more neck scarves and bellbottoms.

Finn ended the long weekend by eating pizza and not puking, so all is well once again.
