July 3: We went to Sesame Place with our friends. The boys went down a water slide by themselves- I offered to join them and they said no thanks!
|Benjamin (in the pink tube)|
|Meeting Bert and Ernie. Asher Ran up to Bert and held his hands- it was very sweet|
|Ice cream with our friends|
|Apparently my camera doesn't work at night|
|Charlotte sharing yet another ice cream with her school friend|
I worked Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and Thursday night Eric and I went with my parents and aunt and uncle to see/hear them record the NPR show Wait Wait Don't Tell Me. In the middle was a huge thunderstorm with torrential rain so loud I couldn't hear the show!
Friday morning the boys had camp and I took Charlotte to the zoo.
|Zenda the lion is 24- the equivalent of 130 in human years. She's in great shape.|
Saturday- more swimming. We went to the pool at the JCC for a picnic lunch. Princess Charlotte ate only hummus and Comte cheese.
|Pretzels and hummus for a fancy lady|
|Rainbows! Unicorns! Ice cream! A preschooler's and a gay man's dream come true!|
Today I went for a run, and while I was out, Eric converted Charlotte's crib to a toddler bed. Of course I am not ready, and I'm not sure she is, either- even though she can climb out of a crib just fine, she couldn't settle down for a nap in her new bed. She is very proud of herself and her "big girl" bed.
Then we had a birthday party at a nearby park for a friend of the boys'. The kids all had a great time and Charlotte had her face painted like a kitty cat. She was adorable.
The kids had pizza and cake at the party, and then came home and Charlotte had an entire second lunch! We had my friend from graduate school over for lunch and had a fairly calm afternoon. Now we are packing up for our annual summer trip to Maine- so many more pictures to come.
