This is me EVERY AFTERNOON:
Anyway, we got all sunscreened up (I wear SO MUCH SUNSCREEN but am still so tan) and made it to the pool at the exact moment it was closing for a dive meet. D'oh.
Since I really just wanted to sit in peace and read my book, we headed to a splash park in a neighboring town. I didn't really have high hopes because I took the babies to this very splash park a few weeks ago, and they were totally bored.
But Harry and Jack LOVED it. They cavorted and splashed and laughed and had the kind of time that makes me remember they are only little kids themselves.
Last weekend we took Harry to the Brett Favre Legends Game, and it was cute. All the oldsters seemed to be having a helluva good time playing flag football. Harry liked it so much he got a Packers shirt which flies in the face of his Bears fandom.
We went to St. Charles to take Ben's dad out for his birthday (that we'll miss while we're on vacay). Before we left, Ben took the little kids to a birthday party and Harry, Jack, and I went out to lunch and to the library to get vacation reads. It was so lovely and relaxing-- a glimpse into my future, perhaps?
