A Day in the Life

Julie gave me this idea from her post last Sunday.

Here is a day in the life of the Rooneys, specifically: Sunday, March 22, 2009
How I start every day.

How Ted often starts his days: some chore. It rained the night before, so he's mopping the deck.

We leave for church, the 11:00 am service.

The only shot I captured during church.

Early afternoon playtime at Sworks.

Odd faces and thumb-sucking at Sworks.

In spite of being in a sprawling metropolis of several million people, running into friends who happen to be having breakfast next door to Sworks and who don't mind my taking pictures of them through the window make us feel like we're in a small town.

Abe enjoys the comics.

Admiring the cool clouds on our way home.

Lunch, probably around 2:30pm.

While the boys nap, Mom reads.

Awake again, around 4:45pm

Look outside and notice this hawk in our palm tree.

We visit our neighbors, Ed and Tita. Their friend was there eating pizza. This conversation went on for ten minutes. This video would have been longer, but my memory ran out. It was our token bit of Sunday insanity.

Checking out pajama sales at Target, 7:30pm.

Abe's favorite place on the planet: the front seat of the VW, 8:30pm.

I would "tag" people, but I've found out that some (if not most) don't like being tagged as much as I do. I'll just say, the "A Day in the Life" project is fun and be sure to tell me if you do it because I really like these posts.

You still have until Wednesday night to enter the Book Giveaway contest. Don't be intimidated by the 55 comments. A lot of those don't qualify to win because it's just people being grumpy :) Any post that finishes the question, "God, I've always wondered..." is eligible to win.

I'm soooo going to do "a day in the life" post!

Julie said...

Love it! But where is Tita? The video is a tad bit disturbing. I also think I would like you to create an 'Abe Reading The Funnies' calendar. Every month, new jammies.

Last night Dan and I muted the TV to have a mini conversation. I looked up and said, "Is that Ted?" We couldn't get the sound on fast enough. Funny guy...
Made me want a Mt. Dew and I don't even like Mt. Dew.

Such a beautiful day! What a great idea - to capture an ordinary day that was really kind of special.
