First night away we met for some good eatin' at the goodwood without kids. The kids had a blast as well. After some good food, conversation and laughter, we went to Kenices for some double dutch and and night games. I wish I was 12.

Well how bittersweet it really is. ALL my kids are in ALL day school. ugh. I am both excited for them, and sad. Is it really possible that my baby is a 1st grade? I am imagining my blogging will not be as frequent with school back in session, and activities slowing down. Oh well.

If you follow me on facebook you may have already heard this, but it still cracks me up. We spent Saturday hanging with some friends at Quail Lake. While there Z found a huge dead crawdad. "Mom, come look. I found a dead lobster!" He exclaimed. Oh, I love this kid.
Nora has a personality that takes warming up to pretty much anything. She did NOT want to go to the Lake. By the time we were leaving she was exclaiming this was the best day of her life. She did not want to get out of the Lake! She sat out there floating in her life jacket, giggling. Funny Mae.

I am sure you have noticed this adorable little buddy of Jarom's in a number of pictures this Summer. Jarom and him are the best of friends, and love to do a lot of the same things. K is a super good kid, and we had a blast having him around so much. Here are the two BF's having one last skatepark adventure before school starts.

So, those of you who know me, know that I am a bit picky with my kids hair. So is Nora, and she won't let me touch it. rrrrrrr. Anyway, that's another story. This story is about the lovely do featured above. Ya. After taking them to get their back to school cuts, and paying a good price for them btw, Z added his own little bit. I asked him what he was doing, and he said "Mom, I told you I wanted it shorter!" Well, he did sure enough. At the salon he told me, but I told him it was short enough. I guess I should listen, and let my kids embrace their "style", as Nora would call it.

We went and saw ANNIE at the Tuachan. The show was really cute. After, Z wanted a picture with the cops, but we couldn't find any. So he settled with a picture of him and President Roosevelt. Sad, but the picture didn't turn out. He kills me. Nora wanted a picture with the AWESOME dog, but he didn't come out for autographs.

How to miss the crowds.. go when it is blazing hot outside. When everyone is doing the siesta thing, eh? Then you can do all the skeeball you want, ride the go-karts, and bumper boats, and avoid all the ticket stealing kids. You only have to endure the stinky cardboard pizza smell, the muggy air, the over priced tokens, and best of all the teenager managers. Why do I go here again? I won't lie, its the skeeball.. every time.

Figuratively speaking that is. Sure the pirate was also a waiter, and the other pirate a token seller. But, I tell you that Pirate Island Pizza swindles your coins right out of your pocket... argh. At least it was fun. My favorite part? When my cute little nephew Gavin showed us all how SkeeBall should be played. He showed those pirates. Oh, another favorite.. watching Nora play my favorite arcade game: Ms. PacMan. :)
