They're just getting over a lovely bug they caught somewhere

What are the kids doing today?

They are good relatively speaking after getting sick - For Caroline it was Saturday and John it was Tuesday. I think we all received it at the grocery store shopping cart. Germs at their best.

I bought toothbrushes for them last night at that same lovely grocery (alone) and Caroline has a secret passion for toothbrushes. She brushed her teeth together before the bath and cried during storytime about wanting her toothbrush. Oh my what kind of monster did I create? John had no time for it. See what the difference is in boys and girls?

We're back from the shore

What are the kids doing today?

Miss Caroline is at Fooma's pool after a nice soak. We helped the kids with kicking their feet in the pool. Mom even enjoyed the pool and kicking around.

John just finished a piece of yummy chocolate cake. It was very good and I think he definitely wanted seconds. During this visit, Caroline was obsessed with the sandbox and pails. I don't know what but it was fun to take water from the baby pool and pour it into the sandbox. This entertained her for a long time. She was upset when we left as Fooma doesn't have a sandbox at her house. Here's John by the shore -- not quite sure of the ocean but at least he goes his toes wet. We put a shirt on him since he is so fair skinned. But, I think the kids had a good time.

Family Reunion

What are the kids doing today?

They were at a family reunion.

It was a hot day on August 13; however, mom was smart to bring a gallon of water in the cooler. Caroline enjoyed being with the big kids including her pap pap. John had fun but was at his wits end around 4 pm without a nap. So, away we went and Eric stayed longer.

Zoo Trip with Pap Pap and Grandma

What are the kids doing today?

We went to the Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium yesterday and had a great time. I have never been there and neither have the kids and they were absolutely pooped when they came home. Caroline was good about naming the animals. I packed a sandwiches and the kids had their first tastings of Dots (ice cream dots). Yummy.
