{Sweet Sam}

Yesterday was Tuesday, which meant that Sam and I travelled up to my Nan's house for a little lunch, Mad Men (we're only on season 3, so no spoilers please!), Super Why for Sam, a cup of tea, and a knitting lesson.

Normally, it only takes about 30 minutes for us to make the trek up, but the universe had other plans...

This monster decided to take a bit of a snooze in the middle of the highway this morning, causing quite the commotion (no worries - no one was hurt). Rumor has it, the flammable material that it was carrying was vanilla extract - mmmm...

Sam and I sat, and sat, and sat, and then we sat some more... It took over an hour and a half to move just a few miles, and my sweet little boy just sat there quiet as could be! Since he was born, Sam has always been a great travel companion - unlike his brother Jack. From the day Jack was born, he has been a pain in the neck to travel with, out of the 3 boys, he is the only one that consistently asks "are we there yet???"

But back to Sam, this little baby took the standstill traffic in stride, and the highlight of the trek was a little Boston terrier in the car in front of us - this boy LOVES a doggie!

this is what keeps me sane...
{and the pretty cup just makes me smile}

and can I just tell you that it totally made my day to find out that Instagram is now available for Android - now I will never be jealous of an iphone again!
