The fifth assignment for the SITS Photo Challenge was to photograph “A day in the life”. You didn’t necessarily have to post the photos, but I found the assignment interesting and wanted to share a day in my life. I didn’t take photos of everything, but I tried to capture the highlights of the day. This was how we spent last Friday.
7:45 a.m. Breakfast! Zucchini bread with cream cheese and gummy vitamins.
8:20 a.m. Combing/fixing Olivia’s hair. It takes awhile, because it is so long, and we use a LOT of detangler, but I have to make sure I get all the tangles out.
8:40 a.m. Every day before she has to go to school, I take a photo of Olivia’s daily outfit choice. Sophia likes in on the action. This is them being silly. “Take a picture of us with the books in front of our face!” They don’t even know about NoFaces! but they are contributing to the cause.
8:55 a.m. We had to park over 2 blocks away, because of a TV show filming at Olivia’s preschool (oh the perks of living in Southern California!), had to hoof it to get to school on time.
9:15 a.m. After dropping sister off, and taking care of some parent committee obligations, Sophia and I headed back to the car, more leisurely this time. We even stopped to take shadow photos. Note: My diaper bag looks gigantic.
9:30-9:50 a.m. We went to get the oil changed in the Routan. While we waited for our turn, I unbuckled Sophia and we just talked and hung out. She was silly and wiggly, but we had a good time.
9:55-10:10 a.m. Got the oil change process started, so we hung out at the bench beside the shop and Sophia had a snack and doodled.
11:00 a.m. Got the oil changed, a complimentary car wash and came home to shop vac the interior of the Routan. When that was all done, I finally got the chance to eat something for “breakfast”. Yummy zucchini bread w/ cream cheese. It was delicious. Seriously, Look no further than Suzanne’s “Healthy(er) Zucchini Bread” recipe for your zucchini bread needs.
12:30-1:30 p.m. I decided to treat the girls to lunch out, and we ALL wanted to go to the Corner Bakery, but it was packed, so we ended up at Denny’s. The girls ate outside of their norm, and loved every minute of it.
5-7 p.m. I let the girls watch television after nap and then they decided to work on their Dr. Seuss Magnet craft (Thank you, Michael’s!). After that was done, I started dinner (I made enchiladas using leftovers from Pioneer Woman’s Spicy Dr. Pepper Shredded Pork that I made earlier in the week–YUM). While I made dinner, Olivia worked in her math workbook and Sophia worked on perfecting the letters of her name.
