My little builder. He was building houses. He kept saying he needed more pieces of wood (cardboard) and would go bang, bang when he was using his hammer puzzle piece.

Grandma and grandpa stopped by for a visit.  Tate enjoyed making play-doh snakes. 

Also, Tate was my kitchen helper this morning. He said he was making cookies for Owen. In reality I made homemade angel food cake, Pioneer Woman's vanilla ice cream, cucumber salsa, and blondies.

Ice Cream

We had a fun day!  Brett, Tate, my cousin Annie, and I all went swimming. We started in the big pool. It was Tate's first time in there this year and he really liked it at first but then he wanted to play in it by himself.  After a giant fit we convinced him to play in the baby pool. He had a great time and even pretended he was a fish. He actually made the three of us get in the pool and be fish too. Then we went to the Dairy Queen for supper. Tate decided to eat my ice cream cone. 

Things like this happen if I take my eyes off of Tate for long...

I went to look at pictures from today and realized the only one I took was of a poopy in the potty. Mom problems!  Tate has definitely entered the terrible 2s. He loved the word no today.
