div>Last week, we headed to the park for some early morning fun. Lets say, there were slides and bubbles involved. Once the bubbles were brought out, there was nothing else at that park though. Who knew that soapy water would be such a hit with kiddos. I wish I was "Mr. Bubble" and invented them!
Last week we also hit up a indoor safari park. The boys had lots of fun. They had two large ball pits, which of course were a hit, as well as a trampoline. It was Dylan's first time on one, I had video but my phone crashed the other day ( go back up your phone now people I lost so much!) he really didn't know what to do, but he has been "jumping" ever since.He jumps on the bed, on the floor, on the couch, he's a wild man, luckily his feet don't actually leave the floor yet! They had a great time, and it wore them both out, so they both took great naps, which means us momma's got good ones too!:)

This room was a little bit of a challenge for me because I had to find a color scheme to work with that involved a red recliner. When I purchased it for Dylan, I didn't really think about having to use it in another room. Because it was so expensive, though great, we decided to move it to Grahams room and purchase a cheaper, not as comfy or convenient, chair for Dylan's room.
I still need to work on the bookcase. It's hard, because whatever is up there, Dylan can pull off, which is why the bottom two shelves are lacking a little in "decor"
I am usually completely anti- monogram. I think that people go over board with them, but with this room, I wanted something different, so I had a piggy bank made, as well as put a G on his bedding. The coo coo clock was my moms. That was the one thing she requested from Adam and I's trip to Germany. It was brown, so a little spray paint, and it works in the room.
This time I went with custom bedding. I know Graham will not care at all, so I picked a damask, a little girly yes, but I LOVE IT!
The art work is 100% done by Big brother to be. All I did was paint the background and let him have at it. The middle one, he had brushes in his hands. The outside ones, I took the brushes away, so they look a little different. I'm super happy with the way they came out, and I also learned that buying canvas' and letting him paint is a really good way to kill time during the day!
Love his name.
Adam the handy man's work. He had to hard wire this lamp into the ceiling, but hey, I originally wanted to put hardwood floors in, so he really lucked out.
So there you have it folks, Graham's room. I'm sure I'm forgetting pictures of something that y'all want to see, so if so, feel free to email me and let me know! It's a far cry from Dylan's nursery yes?
