Well, summer's done for us. I'm technically back to work this week, on email and phone now, although I don't have to go in to the office (thankfully).
Last week, we did two short days at the boys' new school to test drive things and ease the boys back in. They went pretty happily and had a great time at school. Because I'm THAT parent, I took them to Toys 'R" Us after the first day and let them pick something out. Sebastian got a new Spiderman backpack and a McQueen car and Adi picked a Darth Vader backpack (didn't want a car).
Thursday, in between days at school, we went to Thomas Land at Edaville with Mini and Tio Jim and Baby James. The park was hardly ready and there were some major organizational/managerial issues with the place in general. However, we still had fun.
One day Carlos made Adi's favorite pasta, a recipe from Abuelito. Adi couldn't shove it in his mouth fast enough. He was a mess when he was done!
The boys looooved the little zip line.
Sunday was overcast but we went to Hull anyway to play on the beach. First the boys discovered Grumpy's wooden pinball machine. Adi was GOOD at it...he got a glazed look in his eye while playing. I'll have to keep him away from video games! (Yeah right)
Finally, last night we went to see the Toe Jam Puppet Band at the Ames Free Library in Easton. They were funny. The boys were tired and cranky though (Actually, only Adi was), so we left a little early. But I'm glad we checked it out. We have such a gorgeous library--inside and out.
