Clearly, I’m not very good at this

You haven’t heard from me in a little while because are lives are too busy to tell you about them. 😉

Seriously, life is full. So here’s a quick synopsis in photos and videos.

The weather is warming up nicely and we’ve been enjoying lots of time outdoors. What better place to drink chocolate milk than on a little bench outside?

On Saturday, the kids were delighted to be invited to a school friend’s birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese. Me? Not quite as delighted. No-fun-Mummy isn’t really a fan of Chuck-E-Cheese. Apparently, the kids have picked up on this.

When Duncan and I were talking about the upcoming birthday party (he was so excited he was shaking) he asked who was going to take them there.
Me: I’ll take you there, Duncan.
Duncan: But Mummy, you don’t like Chuck-E-Cheese?

I dropped them off, made sure they were settled in and knew to stay with the birthday girl, then ran an errand at Target next door. Then I returned in time to watch them eat cake, do some dancing to one of their favorite songs and generally maul Chuck-E when he came by.

On Sunday afternoon, we had a friend from church over for a play date. This allowed her mom and Nanny to go to a house concert. It allowed me to get a taste of 3 children, ages 3 and 4, for 4 1/2 hours.

After lots of running around the backyard, feeding chickens, playing T-ball and making pretend food, they succumbed to this (it’s Dora, of course):

We all survived intact. And now I’m into another week at work, which is incredibly busy as I’m covering for a coworker who is out sick and I’m on deadline for our donor news magazine. It’s ever interesting, just incredibly packed full of things to accomplish.

  1. Aaron was invited to Chuck-E-Cheeses by the mother of one of his best friends from his “old” day care. Just the two boys and his friend’s mother. Jennifer and I have zero interest in having him spend time at Chuck-E-Cheese. We passed on the play date. I know that at some point he will be invited to a birthday party there, and then we will give in but for now, it is not a destination on our list. I might also add that other than Boomers (a local burger joint), he has never had fast food. Something we plan to uphold as long as we can.
