H's Turn

So after a nice walk with E yesterday. H2 & I went for our walk tonight. We went after dinner so we were better fueled and H2 had tons more energy than Ethan did last night. We went 4.5 miles he was a trooper. We had a lot of fun. The most fun was the beaver we saw swimming across the lake. See:

Now I know that they can make it so expect a lot more trips boys.

Its Official

Although yesterday is the last day of school, TODAY is the first day of Summer Vacation. I'm not sure what we are going to do. The kids are already clamoring to go see their Grandma & Papa, but they have other visitors so we have to wait a few days. The kids bottom lip is poking out, but I think I can manage to distract them. We have the arboretum, the lake, skates & bikes.

Cleaning!! We all know how much kids like to clean. I'm jumping for joy just thinking about it.

My main problem is I can't find my bathing suit. I think I left it at my grandmother's house, but I can't get anyone to call me back and confirm. UGH! I don't want to go buy one if mine is where I am going.

The kids did there best to stay up late as they could last night. H2 made it to 11:45 while E had to be forced to go to bed at 12:30. E is still sleeping. I'm making breakfast. YIPPEE!

E didn't quit on me

E complains a lot that he doesn't get enough "Mom" alone time. So this afternoon we set out to take on the lake. Just us. We left at 6 - ended up walking 5 miles crossed 3 bridges and saw baby ducks, a heron, a snake and an ambulance helping a hurt biker. To E's dismay, we didn't make it in time before the ambulance drove off to see any carnage, but he knew it happened and it made him feel better. I of course did not point out the giant puddle of blood when we walked by and he was kind enough to not notice.

He was tired and when he got home ate an omelet, 3 pieces of bacon and about 12 pancakes. Since today was his last day of school he gets to stay up as late as daddy. Hmm, that should be fun.
