who would like to dance today, with a branch the fairies gave me?
Dance Away, Dance Away!
Grandma "Mimi" (Mary) arrived yesterday afternoon, and was able to come to our May Day maypole dance at school today. She and Justin even got their own ribbons to dance with!
We're slowly transitioning the children over to her capable hands-- we leave in about three days!

After coming home from school today, the kids decided to try to nap on the floor. As you can tell from Justin's cheeks, he was VERY tired.

We kicked a few ideas around-- jungle animals, construction equipment, race cars... but after reminding her that SHE would also have to enjoy the bathroom (because, wasn't that the point?) she picked Dinosaurs. We got to work, scouring pinterest and amazon for the perfect pieces to pull a very special dinosaur bathroom together.
As items came in the mail, we stashed them in the studio. Then, one day during Justin's naptime, we put everything up. He was thrilled! (More importantly, SHE was thrilled as well). The bathroom has been in use for a month or so, but we were waiting for the 'final touch' to arrive... the vinyl dinosaur track decals. I've always thought that I was anti-decal, so it took me a while to muster the fortitude to order them from an Etsy seller. I was wrong. I can see why they're so popular-- super easy to install, and they look SO professional!

Perhaps this is the "Fringe"-viewer in me speaking, but I feel like we're living in two versions of Minnesota-- one is sunny and warm, in the other dimension (which we slip into randomly, without warning) is snowy and gross.
