our journey into parenthood & beyond...

We played hookie last week and went to the track. We didn't win...at all. Our friends that went with us did, so at least someone did.  We did have a  lot of fun, and maybe we can sneak one more day in before the end of the season...

Liam has the worst luck when it comes to falling...his knees are always getting tore up. This time in particular was pretty bad. He hates the process of cleaning out the cuts and wearing "owwie" band aids...truth be told, so do I.

Olive got to enjoy some swim time, too

Liam's first camping trip.  The weather was beautiful, but really, really hot. It didn't help that we had the one camp site without any trees above us- which also meant we didn't get any relief until the sun set.  The bugs ate us alive. Olive almost stroked out from the heat. We probably would have stayed longer, but given Olive's condition we packed up and headed home to an air conditioned and bug free environment. We did get to roast some hot dogs and make smores. Maybe we will try it again in the fall without Olive.
