Friday: Picnic at school, complete with a maze for the kids that I got lost in. Hmm.
Saturday: Heather and I went to pick up our race packets for the half-marathon on the 12th. And then we went to Costco! The new one! It was terribly exciting. Gas was under $3 a gallon! And I was ridiculously excited about the giant boxes of Oatmeal Squares cereal for $5.
I did some product photography for a catalog, and while I had my backdrop set up, the boys had a little photoshoot, at George’s request. That’s his shirt and toy (and I’ll freely admit I photoshopped them together in this picture.)
The fire hydrants on our street were open (yay for no water pressure) so George went to show the boys, and they all basically ended up soaked. Woo hoo, free bath! Regretfully, I didn’t have my camera with me.
After that, I went to the gym and ran 10 miles on the treadmill. Two hours on a treadmill is more about mental stamina than physical, I think. Glad I did it, but I just pray it’s cool on Saturday morning for the race.
Later, I took the boys to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. I have a friend who worked on the first one, so I feel kind of disloyal saying this, but we loved it! Of course it wasn’t as good as the first, but it was definitely entertaining. We decided if Oliver was a foodimal, he’d be, um, and olive, and Miles would be Marshmiles, but we haven’t figured out Linus. Something with limes? Not sure. Any ideas?
This morning was a bit nuts with Linus being sick (he had weird croupy cough Saturday night, but no other symptoms, and still doesn’t, but we thought it best if he stayed home today) and therefore that made me forget the other boys’ lunches, so today they’re getting a ridiculously expensive lunch from Whole Foods that they’re probably not even going to eat. Sigh.
