The Heard Museum

This morning we went to the Heard Museum. It is really close to our house, so we have a membership. I brought my camera along to see if I could catch Augie smiling, but as per usual I have a stoic little man. 

Ready to go!!

I want to play with the Ring-Tailed Lemur!

We had a fun morning  : )

Big Boy Bed

I have been slowly taking steps to eventually have Augie sleep in his own room. I decorated it, organized it, and so on. I am not going to transition him until we are both ready, because there is no sense in both of us not being happy to fit into a pointless social convention, but today we took a big step. I finally purchased a bed-spread that might tantalize him into wanting to sleep in a big kid bed. Lately I have been day-dreaming about watching movies at night, in the winter weather months, tucked away in bed next to Forrest... which obviously can't happen with a sleeping Augie in the room. We will see if my dreams become reality this season...

BBQ Pulled Chicken

Okay, peeps. Get out your crock pot and hold onto your socks, because this recipe will knock them OFF!

3 chicken breasts
1.5c ketchup 
(I like the kind made with cane sugar instead of HFCS because I like to keep it real)
3T brown sugar
1T soy sauce
1T Worcestershire
1T apple cider vinegar
1t garlic powder

Dump that junk in, crank it up to high, and walk away for at least 4 hours. Has it been four hours? Good. Stir it up to break it down into shredded deliciousness, and slap it on whatever vehicle you choose. Buns. Lettuce wraps. Tortillas. Shoot-- Take a bath in it, and you will still have a yummy time!

**If you choose the last option, please don't share the leftovers**
