Going on a Bucky Hunt

I am not going to lie to you, at least once a day, I think about what life would be like if we had our 10/4 baby.  But!  Then I have a day like last Saturday, and I am overwhelmingly grateful to have big kids.

Ben and Harry had their first baseball tourney of the season, so the little kids and I went downtown on an epic Bucky hunt.  We were gone for 7 hours, and I only spent about $45 (on sunglasses, socks, bandaids, lunch, and ice cream.  And a $5 MAGIC COFFEE for me because it is MAGICAL).  They didn't complain or fight, and it was like being out and about with a few people I like and like to spend time with.  Totally magical-- more than the coffee, even.

But then we ended the night with pizza at the pool, which has become our new Friday night family tradition, and the kids beat the hell out of each other and screamed and tattled and collapsed into tiny exhausted tantrum puddles, so.

Here's a smattering of Bucky pics-- I am going to post ALL 85 STATUES once we finish our hunt.






 Ready for adventure:
 Matching sunnies!
 They took a break to have a snack and draw a map
 Explorers at the Capitol
 I TOTALLY EARNED THIS
Lost their first 2 games, but had a blast:
