Summer Break.

We are still trying to keep a loose schedule around here for my little family.  I don't have us going by anything rigid or strict, but we're keeping a good balance of at-home days (to relax and/or do chores) and play days... which may include an outting for just the boys and myself, OR a visit to see family or friends, etc.  It's working well, so far!

Yesterday, we enjoyed an afternoon at the park.  The boys brought their skateboard/scooters... and sunscreen, mind you.  :)  They played, while I read.  It was quite pleasant.  The sun wasn't quite as hot as it has been, and there was a nice breeze.  We followed up our play with a treat at the local Mobile station.  It's an exciting day around here, when the Cardinals score 6 the previous night/day.  $.25 drink day at Mobile!  YAY!  :)  My boys are obsessed with the syrupy, sticky, artificially colored beverages from that place.  KS3 loves to mix some very interesting "slushie" combinations into his cup.  I won't lie... I'm not disappointed when the Cards only make 5.  :)

Here are a few snapshots from our day:

Picnic at the park.

KS3 made his own "double stuff" out of his "joe-joe."  Of course, he did!

A peek-a-boo strand of red hair from his bike helmet.  Too funny.  :)

KS3 named these icecubes after himself and his brothers. 
He sat on that pavement for a good half hour, playing with icecubes.  Silly boy.

LOVE the Kindle!!!
(....Matt G., if you ever happen to drop by here.... Do you see what that is??? 
Yes, that would be Chapter 10!  You may congratulate me.)
