Life, lately, looks like this.
Mike took that. You know I would never use the flash.
It also looks like this --
See ya, CRV.
Last week we said goodbye to the car that brought home our two babies and we purchased a Honda Pilot. We're not mini-van people, but I'm thrilled (!) to have a bigger car. Will thinks it's fun to sit in the way back with Bailey.
It's sort of pathetic that my me-time (whenever I'm able to get it) has turned into trips to the dog park with Bailey. What's even more pathetic is how much I enjoy it. I love watching Bailey run around having a ball, while I get to make small talk with the other owners.
Last weekend, Will wanted to come along so I allowed it. However, he complained the whole time and said it was boring.
Since Will had no respect for 'dog park time,' it will be a long time before he's invited back. Though, truthfully, I don't think he wants to go back.
But Bailey and I continue to go when we can on the evenings and weekends. The other day it was just us while we waited for other doggy friends to arrive. Even with the run of the park, Bailey preferred to lounge in this mud puddle. And then ride home in our brand new car.
Amelia loves Dada. That's all.
Labor Day weekend wouldn't be complete without some BBQing in the backyard.
Once when we were having strawberry shortcake, I put a splat of whipped cream on Will's nose. It's a tradition he now insists we continue every time we eat it.
We ended the weekend with a bang. Literally.
On Tuesday, we brought Big Bro to his new school for orientation. He's going three days a week now. Crazy.
He decorated his take home folder and brought home his first homework assignment.
I think Amelia's ready for school too.
After preschool orientation, we went to our city's picnic in the park.
Will spent a good 20 minutes coloring this mask with a red sharpie at one of the arts and crafts tables. His focus and attention to detail is suddenly very impressive. He's totally ready for preschool.
While summer is over for most families, we get to stretch ours out for one week more. Tomorrow we're off to the beach! Wheeeeeeeeeeeee!
