It's been a cold, rainy, curl up with some hot cocoa kind of weekend here so any plans for enjoying the great outdoors went out the window so we took to exploring town and running errands.
Matthew has become recently OBSESSED with climbing stairs and has wanted to practice on either the concrete steps with wide gaping holes over concrete of our apartment or the very busy, very granite stairs of the library with placement so that if he did bump his head and scream, it would be heard in every corner of the library. I'm not a fan of either of those plans so we headed to the Museum to play in their new Yellowstone exhibit and the "Yellowstone River" tots area. What we learned was that though stairs and steps are fun, ramps are even more awesome.
Celebrating at the top with daddy.
We also stopped in at the Farmer's Market to pick up some more fresh basil so I could try my hand at pesto this week. While there we passed some gorgeous handmade baby/toddler items and decided to pick up a new hat that maybe Matthew wouldn't throw off each morning on his walk. We have no self-restraint when it comes to animals and headgear so we opted for this frog hat.
Here's one of my newest favorite pictures. His expression is just super funny (at least to me) and a little impish meets troll :-)
