We’re leaving in an hour for Gabe’s parents’ house. I’m excited. We haven’t seen his family (except his mom) since mid-June. We’re grilling chicken for lunch, Lima pizza for supper. Gator rides, walks, mud pies, me with the camera. I love my in-laws.
We went to the Super Cool Pool again last night. Did I blog about that a couple weeks ago? Every other Friday night from 8:30-10:30, it’s just $1/person. Two big water slides, splash-n-play park thingy for kiddos, fountains, all sorts of fun. We met our friends Holly, Duey, Coral and Jonah there and had a blast. Nina is in love with water now–hallelujah! Livi and I did the slides a bunch of times. It was sooooo cold when you weren’t in the heated pool. Duey called to tell us to bring sweatshirts. I had no clue there was a chill in the air.
We watched the rest of the Olympic ceremony when we got home (and recorded the rest of it). Wow. Amazing. And so overwhelming. I get completely overwhelmed when I watch stuff of that magnitude. Gabe told me to relax, that no one is going to ask me to engineer/direct an Olympic opening ceremony in my lifetime. True. But still overwhelming. (how many times can I use that word in a single paragraph?)
Here are some pics of Livi and Ava flying their 74-cent Groovy Girls kite with Gabe earlier this week. There’s a field behind our house (owned by a church) that’s perfect for kite-flying. Love, love, love the sky. Clouds are so cool!
Have a great weekend!!
