The Ninth Week Of Summer - Part Two

I am so glad I have done these summer posts, because I know I would forget half the stuff we've done.  I had to think and think before I could remember what we did just last weekend, for this post!

On Friday, I had to go to Dylan's pediatrician's office to have them fill out a form for preschool, so I took the opportunity to take him to "Blue Slide Park", a playground with huge blue slides that you go down on pieces of cardboard.  It is such a fun park, and it was the perfect playground day - not too hot, with a nice breeze blowing.  The only crimp in the day was when I took my camera out to get a fantastic shot of Dylan flying down the blue slide, and realized the camera was out of battery!  When am I going to learn to check that before I leave the house?  You cannot believe how dependent I am on a camera.  I feel lost when I don't have one.

I did get these shots of Dylan playing in his sandbox later, though...

Saturday, we went to Keystone Lake for some swimming and sandcastle making.

Sunday, Jim and I had a date.  We saw "Grown Ups", which was funny.  Not hilarious - a bit over the top in trying to be funny at times, but still enjoyable.  We also went to Michael's so I could do some shopping for some crafts I'd like to do, and to Bravo's for dinner.  Then, back to Jim's parents to get Dylan and eat some of my birthday dessert.  (Thanks again for the chocolate chip cookies, Marge!)

So, my first few days of being 38 were pretty fun.  I posted a picture of myself in a bathing suit at the age of 38, so either I'm pretty comfortable with how I look at this age, or my mind is starting to go.  Or, maybe it's true that at a certain age, you just really don't give a flying "truck" what people think anymore.

Cute photos! And I often run out of batteries for my camera...ugh. It is so frustrating.

And good for you posting a photo of you in a swimsuit. You look great so why not???

I love the feet in the sandbox shot!!

If I didn't blog I would NEVER remember a darn thing. I think that's the #1 reason I do it.

I'm with Burgh . . . YOU LOOK GOOD, MOMMA! I love reading these posts and hearing about how you are spending your summer - and I love the shots of Dylan in the sandbox - he is so handsome and getting so big!
