So, how's the weather where you are, these days? Most people I'm hearing from are saying the same thing I'm going to say, which is "Did I die and find out I've been following the wrong religion all this time?"
Yeah, it's hot. Hot enough that I got all this at the grocery store today:
and felt that I had exercised a great deal of self-restraint. Especially since there's still some of it left in the freezer as I type.
We had fruit bars (from Aldi's, all fruit, very good) in the backyard, because (as I explained to the Monkeys) popsicles are an OUTside food.
They were good with that.
Then, The Mad Scientist decided to mow the lawn. I need to preface this picture with an explanation...if I could only come up with one.
First, let me say that the boy uses the potty without fail...as long as his nether regions remain uncovered. So there's been a lot of nakedness at our house, recently. (Have you ever heard the phrase "Naked as a jay bird"? Monkey3 has taken to saying, with great indignation, "I not day biwd!")
Also, he's a monkey. And he likes noisy machines. And he loves his Daddy. And there you go.
I am so totally saving that picture to put somewhere prominent on his wedding day.
