Happy Birthday Uncle Adam
The boys actually had some real play time today, which felt really good. The weather was beautiful, so we were able to spend some quality time outside. HOORAY! Of course, they did start coughing, so we headed inside and made loads of cookies for Uncle Adam's birthday. Daddy even got home early from work, so we all went outside and did yard work. Then, some real excitement, when our neighbor was given a sobriety test and outside were 4 police cars. The boys thought it was the best thing ever! They kept waving out the window and the cops were trying their hardest to wave inconspicuously at the boys and be serious at the same time. Our neighbor did a stellar parking job across the street, taking up most of the sidewalk at an odd angle. It made me pause for a moment to think about what could have been. I constantly allow the boys to walk or ride their bikes ahead of me. They are extremely cautious about the road and on-coming cars, but if one were to come on to the sidewalk, they wouldn't know what to do. I'll think more carefully from now on about how to keep both of them closer. All in all, a good day. Banana bread in the oven and boys are DOWN! Hooray! Tonight Dan and I are having a Mastermind and Backgammon tournament! Yeah for Saturday night!
