Yesterday we celebrated Grant's 5th and Kate's 3rd birthdays. We went to the Newton's (Rachel's parents' house). Our kids looove going there. They have the most awesome backyard. They built it this way so their kids and kids' friends would want to play there (under watch of parents). In the backyard they have: a pool, jacuzzi, playhouse with play food, kitchen, etc., huge slide, gigantic sandbox with play equipment, teeter-totter, big grassy area, bbq pit, basketball hoop, etc. So when we tell the kids we're going over, are they excited! And try getting them to leave for home! They haven't quite figured out how the Newtons can be their cousins' grandparents and not theirs. So they sometimes accidentally refer to them as Grandma or Grandpa Newton.
So today I was going to go work out at the gym, but with summer our schedule's all discombobulated. The kids wake up later, and it throws off my plans. That's okay. I was up to mow at 7am and had no problem breaking a sweat even that early! It's 9:30 and the kids are still in pjs. (It's summer!) The boys are upstairs yelling and making a ruckus. I'm surprised Mira Catherine isn't upset because of it. She's awake. I heard her. But she seems to be content. Why disturb her, right? Ella's down here begging me to read a book. She doesn't understand 'just wait a minute and I will'. It's, "Are you going to be longer? Please read this book!". Alright. Things are getting out of control with those boys. It sounds like they're going to break something. I'd better go check it out!
