The Eleventh Week Of Summer - Part One

I had off last week, so my parents got Dylan out of the house on Monday and Tuesday so I could get some stuff done.  Boy, did he have fun!  I was feeling a little jealous, spending my days inside, cleaning and getting stuff ready for a consignment sale, while the three of them were having a blast.  But, of course, I'm also extremely grateful.

On Monday, they went swimming at Keystone Lake.



On Tuesday, this guy in the picture (my dad), and my mom somehow talked my heights fearing kid into doing ...


THIS!!!!


And, then THIS!!
He even said it was "better with Mi-Mi - she went faster!"



They also took him to Living Treasures on Tuesday, to feed the animals and go on a pony ride.







On Wednesday, I took him to get a haircut, to the bank, and to Goodwill to drop off some stuff.  After all the fun on Monday and Tuesday I was sure he was going to be asking for "Mi-Mi & Bubba" back!

Thursday, we went to a friend's house for a playdate.  Dylan's buddy Caleb wasn't his usual happy self that day.  There are times when I hear myself in what my little boy says, and I have to smile.  At one point, he went over to Caleb, put his arm around his neck, and said, "Caleb, that really isn't something to cry about!  It's no big deal!  Be happy!"

Tuesday night I did what every woman in America between the age of 25-50 seems to be doing.  I went to see "Eat Pray Love" with a group of women.  I enjoyed the movie (I haven't read the book yet, but I bought it to read).  Honestly the best parts were just going to see a movie with a friend, and the conversation we had afterwards!

Too much to fit in one post, so the rest of the week is still to come...

There is nothing better than a grandpa to make you feel brave!

Sounds like you are having a great summer! You're doing it all - getting to clean and toss, Dylan having grandparents time,and you out with the girls. Sounds like a perfect recipe for fun. Loved the pictures.

He is lucky to have such great--and youthful--grandparents. It looks like he had a blast (and I'm sure they did, too!).

You know what I wish? I wish you lived closer so we could have gone to that movie together and discussed it after. That would have been so interesting to me. And I think it would have been so much fun. So invite me next time why dontcha?!
