We've been able to get in the pool a lot since last weekend, which has been nice. I've only been in a few times, but the boys have been loving it! We blew up a boat we bought for Jacob when we first got our pool, and let Carter try it out. He's weird about baths so we were worried about the pool, but he's been great! He likes to race his brother and kick his legs in his boat. Jacob's specialty is squirting people with the various squirt gun-type devices around the pool. He still wears a floaty, but hopefully we'll figure out ways to get him closer to swimming on his own.
|Happy boys in the pool!|
We opted to go all the way to Perry because I was nervous it might sell out at the closer drive-in and I didn't want to have to get there super early and then have to kill time with two kids. Silver Lake was preferable because they have lots of ways to kill time--mini golf, arcade, bounce houses, and food! Nowadays the food isn't really as much of an option, though I think we could still make the ice cream work! Mini golf was jammed, but we tried it out anyway!
|Ready to play!|
|Hard to see, but there's water flowing out of the tower into the barrel. Cute stuff :)|
|I managed to catch Carter not moving for a couple seconds!|
|They had the stocks on the course, and what kind of parent would I be if I didn't take a picture of my child in it?|
|We used one of our periods of waiting for the group ahead of us to finish to take a picture on a bridge...with mixed success!|
|It's such a pretty course! At least I spared you my pictures of flowers along the way!|
Back at the car, we settled in for the movie. Carter got changed into his PJs and the snacks came out. Jacob took over the back seat and Carter decided to stay up front with us.
|Everyone is settled in!|
Eventually he switched to my lap since he was making Craig warm, and we all enjoyed the movie. It was interesting, for sure, since the minions don't speak English, exactly, and the whole movie was about them, but it was cute and tied back into the other movies at the end. It was a fun night, for sure, but a late one! We left a little before 11pm, and while Jacob fell asleep pretty quickly, it took Carter a little longer. We got home just before midnight and the boys went right down. I took a little longer...which wouldn't have mattered if Jacob wasn't up at 6:30am with a stomachache. I sat up with him for a half hour, and he seemed to be doing better after that. I never did go back to sleep, but I did go back to bed! We had a slow morning before getting ourselves off to Jacob's baseball game at noon, particularly since Jacob seemed to have a recurrence of his nausea from earlier in the morning right before we left.
Carter was a little loopy while we were there, but the weather was gorgeous again and Jacob got a game ball :)
|Love that smile!|
|He's getting to be such a big boy!|
Tomorrow Craig and Jacob are heading up to Canada for a couple days for some lacrosse stuff. Next week at this time I'll be packing up my final items for my work conference trip. The weekend after that is full of parties, and before you know it, July will be over! Yikes! Well, at least we got one more good summer weekend in, right?
