Summer

is finally here.  Even though the group of kids I had this year in school was one of the very best, it was kind of a long year.  I'm ready to be on Toddler Time which even though involves lots of tantrums, it involves a two hour nap everyday.  So I can get with that.

Our days include things like playing at the park across the street and visiting the animals and choo-choo at the zoo but mostly, mostly, actually ALL THE TIME FOREVER:
1. unwinding and turning on the hose in the backyard and
2. watching people mow the lawn.
The other day a guy down the street was finally mowing his lawn after waiting a good five or six days too long.  Mace and I sat on the deck watching him and I remarked that the guy was having some trouble with his push mower since the grass was too high.  "Having trouble?" has become a go-to phrase when Mace sees people mowing (to which I always respond YES I AM WOULD YOU PLEASE TAKE OVER RIGHT NOW).

  1. Happy Summer! If you get bored, you can always come on up to WI! (No, really). It's been raining here quite a bit followed by gorgeous sunny days, so people have been mowing their lawns a TON. It would be like LAWN PORN for you guys!
