[Mailman Mason Monday] #postofficeadventuresofmasonb #part8

Monday, March 13, 2017

When we stopped doing the Picture Perfect Project last year, I stopped sharing Mason's post office pictures on the blog. I had deemed it my "photo project of the year" through the PPP and when it ended, I didn't stop taking pictures of him at the post office, but I forgot to share them here too. I was thinking about it the other day and I want to continue to share them here even though I don't technically "have a reason" to each month. So instead of sharing per month, I'm going to share per event cycle (for my work - essentially why we go to the post office so often). We have seven events per year and as the events approach, we go to the post office more often and as they pass, we go less often.

Still playing a little catch up... when I last left you, we had gotten through November 1, 2016.

Here are the pictures that I've shared on Instagram as well as the captions (minus the emojis) that I've shared from November 7, 2016 to December 2, 2016.

11.7.16 // Ready. Set. GO!

11.8.16 // The only election related post you will ever see from me -- mail man Mason mailing Seth and my ballots a couple weeks ago!

11.14.16 // Lots of mail for this happy little mail man this morning!

11.16.16 // It's a shame he hates helping me so much.

11.17.16 // This morning, on the way to the post office, I asked Mason where we were going. "The market (grocery store)!" "No, not right now, but good guess! Where are we going right now?" "Umm. The market?" "No. It starts with a P." "Pizza place!" Guess someone was hungry!? Better luck tomorrow!

11.18.16 // When we walk over to the PO Box, I always hand him the keys and pick him up so he can open it to check for mail. Looks like I might not need to pick him up for very much longer...

11.18.16 // A mail man's work is never done! One last stop and it's now the weekend!

11.21.16 // I tried again this morning and asked Mason where we were going. "Where are we going?" "Uhhhh...?" "The market?" "No." "The mall?" "No." "Papa's house?" "No." "Disneyland?" "YEAH!!!!". While he was obviously wrong, I definitely like his way of thinking better!

11.23.16 // He got to go to two different post offices today AND buy stamps at the one this morning. I'd say his Thanksgiving break is off to a pretty good start!

11.28.16 // It's definitely been a Monday today. I mean, I only meant to post this picture almost 10 hours ago when it actually happened. Oh Monday, can't say I'm sad to see you leave. Side note -- those tippy toes though! They get me every time!

11.30.16 // Waiting for the 80 stamps that I bought to finish printing! This can only mean one thing... Christmas cards are coming!

12.2.16 // When your mailbox doesn't have any mail, you go searching through the big boxes to look for packages!

  1. Keep them coming is what I say. I would never get sick of these!

  2. Does he have his own mailbox? I saw one in the kid aisle of Target.

  3. Im amazed you can still take new pictures with how often you two go to the PO! Still my favorite IG hashtag :)

  4. I'm with Whitney! How you keep each picture "new" with the number of PO trips you take is amazing! I also miss seeing the little mail truck of Mason's...
