Glimpses of us, summer adventures

R and I are noticing more and more, the boys are developing their likes, dislikes, how they interact with each other and their peers. We notice this in the day to day stuff we do with them. Last night was one of those nights, we took the boys for a swim after dinner, and it was one of the first times where it didn't seem like a chore or a major ordeal to get us out back. It was great, and the kids mellowed out, cooled down after running around inside the house while dinner was cooked. Then R ran the sprinklers, which equaled more fun. It cracks me up to see how one kid is timid about getting wet, where another wants to hop immediately in. E just wanted to walk and get involved, it gives way to seeing how active he's going to be as we let him loose from the safety of our arms.

Today is the start of a fun weekend. We're meeting a mom's group at a wading pool this morning. I haven't been there before, so I'm excited to check out another place to go. We'll come home to cool off, and tonight, I have a mom's night out, thanking past board members and welcoming the new ones-yay! We're unsure about this weekend-R's aunt is home from Hawaii and she's offered us free babysitting, so we're not sure if we're going to take her up on that. R want to go to the farmer's market tomorrow, followed by berry picking. I had planned on going out w/ the boys for breakfast w/ a mom's group, but R is excited to get healthy food vs eat out, so we'll see what happens. Finally, on Father's Day, we're making R brunch and a special dinner. Homemade treats will suprise him throughout the day. Its a mellow weekend, but a fun one!
