I am so tan I look like a California Raisin (there's a dated reference if ever there was one), and I use sunscreen every time I go to the pool. I am starting to take it personally--like I have too much area to cover for sunscreen to help me. I definitely need more than a shot glass, that's for sure.
Cooper had his first tee ball game, and even though it didn't start until 15 minutes before the little kids' bedtime (fuck you, summer activities. some of us put our kids to bed super early so we can watch bad TV and drink vodka lemonade slushies), we all went to watch, even though we knew that would probably end badly.

I am not really a helicopter mom, but for some reason, dropping Jack off at a junior high 15 minutes from our house and running 15 minutes to Costco and back (plus madcap shopping time) made me all freaked out. I was so worried he wouldn't be there when we got back (LATE because I SUCK). But, of course he was, and in further evidence of my total suckitude, I got the pick up time wrong and he still had 20 minutes left to play.
It has been cool at night and in the morning here, but my little walking buddy decided about 15 minutes in that her footie pajamas were too warm. I mean. Duh.
hot and spicy cheese bread, and a magic coffee. TOTAL WIN.
This cake with a double batch of this icing was AMAZING and wonderful and I wanted to make out with it.
We finished the day at a lovely barbecue filled with dripping, happy kids and delicious fajitas.

Last Friday was the first day of summer break, and I woke up to see this in my not-quite-all-the-way-painted kitchen:
He loved his presents-- most of which he shopped for himself on the Internet and sent me a link to a full shopping cart. Which? SO HANDY.
Here he is turning 6.
Here he is turning 7.
Here he is turning 8.
Here he is turning 9.
After breakfast, we had even more swimming lessons.
