Summer Vay Cay

Being the jerk mom that I am, I was kinda dreading summer vacation. It really has been great having Henry home. He's such a fun kid. Is it lame to say he's one of my best friends? Well, call me lame 'cause seriously, I like him a lot. Side note-- today we were coming out of Safeway and I put my arm around Henry, gave him a little squeeze and said, "Henry, you're my favorite boy." Henry was kinda annoyed and said, "Mom, I'm your only boy!" He's getting too smart.

Maren decided to get a crappy cold over the weekend that looks like it's going to spread itself out over the entire week so we've been laying kinda low the past couple of days, but we managed to squeeze a few things in before then:

Maren playing in the filthy pool from last summer. (I'm lucky all she's got is a cold.)

Hanging out in the yard.

Inflatable pool time-- Maren was much more into it than Henry.

Fishing at Pine Lake, Wheaton Regional Park.

Maren didn't care much for this. She sat back on her blanket, eating snacks and watching her stories on the iPod.

Ok, that pool is disgusting, Henry is adorable sitting in that pool looking bored and I would be sitting next to Maren begging her to let me watch a show on that ipod if I had gone fishing with you guys.

I can't believe how old Henry looks! Love the bored pic in the pool. Looks like the summer has been pretty fun so far for ya. :)

I saw you from afar at Stake Conference, but you were gone by the time I made it over that way to say hi. I just caught up on all of your posts (my computer was down for a little while). I want do something to help when Maren goes in for her operation, or when she's recovering or whenever. Henry is welcome here anytime, we have bigger boy things to do, and I won't make him sit in an inflatable pool :)
