summer is the BEST.
and this week has definitely been summery.
we spent wednesday, thursday, friday, aaand saturday playing at a lake.
sometimes it was just me and the boys, sometimes we went with cousins, once we preluded our lake trip with a backyard pool party, once we followed it up with a hotdog roast, and *every time* it was awesome!
matt has been gone on a business trip to chicago since wednesday morning, so it couldn't have been more perfect timing for a gorgeous week to bless us with its' presence.
the hot weather was the perfect distraction for me - the boys were happy all day and totally pooped, come bedtime.
friday was holden's official 3rd birthday.
i debated whether or not i should even tell him (since he had already gotten all the fuss/gifts/cake/etc. at his party last weekend) but i went ahead and told him because *I* wanted to.
we spent 6 solid hours playing at sikome lake that day and grabbed a happy meal on the way home.
he was one very happy birthday boy.
oh my word, being a mom is so much fun (and easy) in the summer.
