It's so rare that nobody is working or has an activity that we decided to take advantage of an unusually chilly July morning and go for a hike close to home. Don't they look enthused?
Let's just say this wasn't top on Eli's plans for a Saturday morning, especially since it was followed by a trip to the farmers market. Since it's too cold to swim, we have had to get rid of the energy somehow. The rest of Saturday was spent relaxing at home and having a barbeque with friends and lots of time playing outside in the fresh mosquito free air!
Sidney insisted on taking her juice and a snack in this on the hike. She wouldn't get out of the car without it. More on this later. If you haven't read a post recently on No Hand But Our Own about eating, do so. Minus hording, it describes Sidney completely.
This isn't the best shot, but it perfectly describes the time Eli and Tom spend together. Eli always has something interesting or funny to share. I was talking to another mom the other day. I totally understood when she said every stage her kids go through is her favorite.
Not the most flattering, but if you consider I hadn't gone to the pool to do my laps yet, meaning I hadn't had a shower in this photo (is that too much info?), it's not so bad!
