Which is why I haven't posted in two weeks... It's not from lack of things to post. It's just because I feel like a slug, so I've decided to act like one too.
This is how we eat watermelon over here. Not always, just when Mommy is too lazy to cut it up, and when Daddy doesn't feel like taking over.
For Father's Day, we made Mark a chocolate tree. (And, by "we", I mean that I did most of the work while the boys pointed out that I didn't buy enough chocolate for them to eat as much as they wanted and still cover the tree for Daddy.) Mark loved it, and so did the boys. (Just buying the chocolate was an adventure, as we were stopped by a policeman across the road from 5 people getting arrested at gun point.)
The lack of drywall where the mold was eradicated. One day we'll get around to finishing that project.
My parents came to visit last week, and it was awesome. We didn't take many pictures since we were too busy having fun. Our fun list included going to the splash park, visiting the library, riding bikes, and going to a Beatles tribute band's concert in the park.
The boys especially enjoyed the concert. Jon realized it was past his bedtime though - and he was pretty worn out. He spent some time snuggling with his blanket (and kicking Grandpa and Grandma).
Isaac, on the other hand, sang along with a whole bunch of the songs (they didn't play his favorite, "Imagine" - which I explained wasn't really a Beatles song anyway), ran around like a crazy child, and rolled down the hill we were sitting on.
We let Jonathan open his birthday presents from Grandpa and Grandma a little early, since they were here.
(Okay, so, in my laziness, I forgot to rotate this one...) The Monsters, Inc. stickers are already all gone. They spent some time attached to every surface in the house first though. (Seriously, I even found some in the bathrooms.)
The lighting is horrible, but here's the boys with Grandpa and Grandma.
And, for the remainder of the week, this was all the energy we felt like we could expend over here.
Even with all the heat, our pea plants have been growing like crazy! Unfortunately, the peas have to be cooked an insane amount before being soft enough to eat. I'm not sure whether it's the heat or the drought making them so tough, but at the least the flowers on the vines look pretty!
For those who are not aware, I have been on what my husband calls "The Quest for Perfect Tofu" ("THE Quest" for short). I think I may have found it - dry frying is the way to go. Isaac had informed the workers in the kids' club at the gym that he is a "no meat eater", which isn't strictly true (he still likes bacon and hot dogs), but we eat more tofu and fish than anything else, so the tofu quest is perfectly reasonable.
Again, too lazy to rotate the picture. Jonathan LOVES these 3-D glasses. He gets all excited when he wears them, and shouts: "Mommy, you blue! Now you red!" I'm just happy when he remembers his colors.
This was what the van registered the temperature as when we went to pick Mark up from work (I don't think that was the high today, but we avoid the outside world like the plague right now, so I don't know). I think I picked the worst summer to be pregnant...
