summer break day one or three... or something

OK, so maybe summer break actually started last Thursday, but today was the first weekday it wasn't cloudy or rainy. SOOOOO, we had big plans to head to the local pool and have some fun in the sun.


We started the AM with a coffee, because, well, as I've mentioned my children have a sick addication to the stuff. I on the other hand could take it or leave it...


I chased each Bug around with lotion, wrestled them into their swim trunks and then went to get myself ready. Problem one, I couldn't find my bathing suit bottoms. One would think that the bottoms would be with the top, however if you have seen my closet (mind you I use the term closet very loosely, as mine spills out onto the floor) you would know that this is not the case. After sorting through 45 piles of clothes was left with only a top. Unfortunately, our pool is not the bottomless type, so I called for backup. Aunt Ashy was on the way over and as I was getting ready to search the basement I heard a series of thuds. Bitty, was attempting to push the toy wheelbarrow up the stairs and it appeared that he made it half way before he tumbled backwards.


Bitty is the get up and dust yourself off kind of kid, so when he started screaming I knew he was hurt. Luckily there was no blood, but I quickly saw two goose-egged abrasions on the left side of his head. We called daddy who suggested a trip to the new Children's Urgent Care in Springboro, but I called the peds. office first to talk to a nurse. After a chat with a nurse we decided to keep an eye on him and to call back if we noticed any changes. She also suggested that we take it easy for the day, which meant no pool (not that we had found any bathing suit bottoms anyhow).

we're baaaaaaaack!

Did you think we were never coming back? I wasn't sure if we were either. I thought I'd be a blogging fool once my grad work was finished, but then the end of school was near and chaos continued. As of today, we're officially on summer break... and enjoying the rain?!?!? I love how that works :)


As tradition would have it, we went to a Dayton Dragons game with my fam last Thursday. Both boys were excited, but Bitty is definitely our biggest baseball fan.


I'm not sure if they what they enjoyed most, hanging with Grammy and Pappaw, the game, or the plethora of treats that they suckered out of everyone.

Bitty is a big hat fan (which makes his momma very happy when we're out in the sunshine). You can find him sporting some sort of hat (usually baseball) nearly 100% of the time... including when he sleeps.




Bugman has his own hat wearing style, to say the least.

For good measure that momma bought those spoiled boys a big orange foam finger and a foam dragon claw. They loved the finger, and the claw... well their momma had fun with it.

And to make up for our lack of blogging... a few more photos from the evening.
