The weekend is over. The boys went to Grnny and Grndd's trailer on Friday night and then M and I went up Sat. afternoon to get them. We spent the day at the trailer and came back late Sat. night. Church on Sunday and then a yummy lunch at Dnny's where the boys actually behaved like civilized little monsters. Then a relaxed afternoon and evening. A wonderful weekend. Here are some pics of our Sat. up at the trailer. Next weekend we are shutting it down so our time there is almost over for the summer. boo hoo.

This is E fishing in our driveway. Watch out for those hammerhead sharks!!!
And this is a super yummy dinner I made this week from one of my recipe books courtesy of Grnma Drdre. The chicken needed to be marinated for several hours and turned out super tasty, and it had this peanutbutter sauce dip for the chicken that the kids and M and I all loved. I served it with rice and sauteed carrots, green peppers, yellow peppers and zucchini.

So tonight since I couldn't go to sorority I gave my kids a warm bath and put them in their p.j.'s. and took them to Chpters for a Strbcks and a play in the kids area. We had a really super relaxing time and I love when the kids are running around with smiles on their faces and I'm holding an iced venti drink. Since A has been dry for a couple of days now I made the gigantic decision to let him go out without his diaper. Ya...that's right. When I heard him say, "Mommy, poop", I didn't even panic. I mean this kid is dry now right?! Then I pick him up and I feel a bit of moisture and still I don't panic, I'm thinking oops a little pee escaped before he noticed. All the way to the washroom I'm talking and sauntering along. And then I arrive at the washroom. Well, it wasn't a bit of pee, it was liquid poop. There's no way the little guy could have kept that in and he didn't. It was all over his p.j.'s, his legs, my shirt and my arm. I basically had to give us both a bath in the washroom and then rinse out our clothing in the sink and try to dry off with the hand dryer before venturing back out into the store. What was I thinking?? This is not my first day as a parent and yet I skip off to Chpters with a two year old who has been using the potty for less than a week and don't make him wear a diaper?!?!?!?! I deserved what I got.
P.S. I don't make it into the pictures very often so here's a pic of me this a.m.

Apparently it takes ONE DAY to adjust to being a school kid. I brought E to the bus stop today(his second day of school) and as soon as he saw the bus he was right in line and off he went. He didn't even give me a kiss good-bye!!! Look at that happy face. Did the last four years mean nothing to him?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Obviously he was ready to start school. Thank goodness I left this decision to God because if I had had my way he would be staying home with me.
Also, some clarification about our new pet frog. He is an aquatic frog meaning he is in the fish bowl all the time, he doesn't come out and hop around. We feed him little pellets from the pet store. Basically it's like a fish but less maintenance. Here's a pic from the website that is a bit clearer than my old camera can take.
