Cousin Park Day

How do you pass the time while you wait for lunch?
Arm wrestling ... obviously. 
It didn't seem to matter how the teams were divided or what kind of basketball we played ...
.. CousinD won.
 Smiles were the order of the day it seems.
The four boys had a blast on the splash pad and it was a great way to keep cool.
Great park. Great day.

Park Pics

What is it about kids that makes them like travelling in packs so much?
For my two, everything is more fun with more people.
It's so cute to see A interact with the younger kids.
He would have been a good big brother.
Smiles all around.

Quick News

We're happy to see the trampoline back.
I'm amazed at the number hours that they can spend out there.
This fort in the play room was created by A.
Living in the apartment he wasn't able to build any because we didn't have the space to give up.
He liked this one so much he slept in it last night.
We did get some bad news yesterday. Our backyard tree has to come down.
Because it was damaged (note the bald space) during the ice storm we had someone come to take a professional look at it.
Although the ice damage wasn't that bad the investigation revealed rot at the point where the three main trunks come together.

We're Ba-a-a-ack

While M and I plug away at the things that need to be done around here the kids have jumped right back into the fray.
The weather has cooperated and they are enjoying the freedom of being able to just scoot out the front door.
Summer Days.

M and I are scrubbing, scraping, and preparing the house back in SlowTown.
The kids are playing, fishing and boating at the lake.
