What a great weekend we had! Lemme tell you about it.
Friday night, we had pizza for dinner. Okay, not an exciting night, but pizza is always a good thing, right?
Saturday, I got to sleep in because I was exhausted from a lack of sleep Thursday night. Once I gave the boys breakfast and did some laundry, etc, etc, I took the boys to the pool. I hadn’t joined yet for the summer, and I was a little nervous about dropping money on something the boys might refuse to do. Last summer, we joined, but I probably went by myself more often than with the boys. They just weren’t really into swimming all that much.
But Saturday was a revelation! I put their Puddle Jumpers on, and to my delight, Oliver and Miles got right in the pool and “swam” off. Linus, however, was content to sit on the steps. But within the first hour, I was able to get him to at least hold on to me. And once we were out in the pool, I was able to let go of him, and from then on out, he was as fearless as his brothers! (Well, almost. He still wouldn’t let me throw him like Miles or put his face in the water like Oliver.)
So we spent a few hours at the pool on Saturday and later on Sunday. The boys didn’t want to leave, but I was pretty exhausted. I was trying to stay as active in the pool as possible, you know, burn some calories, so both Saturday and Sunday nights, I was beat.
Saturday afternoon I went and photographed my friend’s daughters who are 3 and 8 months. The 3 year old was…tough. But such a beautiful child! Ah well, I’ll try again when she’s four. Ha!
Sunday was of course Father’s Day, so we went and had brunch and then took the boys to the pub, as I mentioned yesterday. Usually, the boys hate going to the pub (much to George’s sorrow) because there are often dogs in there. But they had a great time. Especially since Daddy will buy them as many bags of crisps as they want.
And so we spent the rest of the afternoon at the pool, and then I made a yummy dinner (that the boys didn’t eat, but that’s okay, I didn’t really expect them to) that I accidentally added an extra cup of wine to. Oooops! Just as well the boys didn’t eat it!
