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.
