Summer is upon us. That means only two things: (A) Lots of junk food and (B) flagrant abuse of the YMCA Child Watch program. Because nothing of note has happened (except the realization that I can now drop one kid off at Child Watch and take the other two (my favorite two that day) to the pool with me has been kind of life changing), I will catch you up on our happenings by unloading my SD card directly onto Blogger.
The big boys slept super late the day we were supposed to leave College Station. James, you will notice, was bright eyed and bushy tailed at ten till six. I was so happy we sprang for the suite because C and W slept until 8:30. This is how you travel with three kids, BTW, you have one sleeping room and one par-tay-all-night room. And then you spend the twelve hours between eight PM and eight AM moving tiny bodies back and forth according to the situation. Super restful.
This (not actually that restful) arrangement had some consequences. For example, Wes was very disappointed that I couldn't find his favorite CD as we drove out of town.
He was making such a spectacle of himself I had to take a picture before retrieving the CD from under the passenger seat.
Later, he and James slept through an entire shopping trip. James is only sitting up because of the safety belt.
This is what Wes does when you ask to see his "big eyeballs".
And this is what he did the other day when I tried to get him to stop running around the Home Depot checkout area by saying "Go get your bottom on that wall!"
We were really very inappropriate at Home Depot. They should not leave the house after 6:00 PM. But when you need tile samples, you need tile samples.
Friday was my birthday so I decided to head out of work early, but on the way home I thought I would stop for a slice of coconut cream pie, since I pretty much want coconut cream pie all the time anyway and it was my birthday. When I explained that it was my birthday, they gave me my piece of pie and iced tea on the house! I got a ton of writing done as I ate my pie.
The pie was almost as much fun as going home to a Chinese food feast with my sister and brother in law and these cutiepies.
