Random cheeriness today. It may have something to do with the fact that it's been raining here for about 8 days and yesterday and today are the first sunny days we've seen in a long while. AND, they're the last we're going to see until at least Sunday...possibly further into next week but I refuse to read the weather report beyond Sunday. Three days of rain is more than enough, I don't want or NEED to know that there will be a fourth or fifth.
So, back to the cheeriness. We've had a great week so far and I just felt like sharing it. The boys are doing well and have been remarkable playful with each other. Granted, it's a lot of play fighting - wrestling, shooting each other with the snorkel, chasing, hiding in a fort in the living room and jumping out to scare each other. Good brotherly fun.
We also have/had some big events this week which we're enjoying. On Monday Adeventure Uncle and Awesome Auntie got married at their home and we were there to celebrate with them. It was a really beautiful ceremony and reception, dispite the gray clouds that lingered overhead. Again, when it was time for us to go both boys protested. Nate more loudly than Ben but that's to be expected. I have to say, not that I enjoy having my children cry upon departure, it is nice that they enjoy spending time with their aunt and uncle so much that leaving is heartbreaking for them. I remember that feeling myself after leaving my Aunt's house and my cousins when I was young and even if I had spent a whole week there for school vacation (which I often did) I still felt miserable about saying goodbye and wished that I could stay longer. I imagine that's just how the boys feel too.
We have another wedding to go to this Saturday for friends of ours. the boys won't be joining us for that one although they were welcome to attend. Honestly, Tim & I are looking forward to the 45 minute car ride to the church without constant interuption. We love our kids, I don't think anyone would doubt that, but sometimes you need to remember what it's like to have a conversation with each other. We're starting to have only vague memories of that thanks to Tim's schedule (and so our complete lack of any time together really) and having kids. This wedding should also be a blast and yes, I realize it will probably be more fun for me than for Tim given that it's my friend's wedding and a large group of my friends will be there. On the bright side, I found out from the bride yesterday that we'll be sitting with one of my closest friends and her family and she and I are known for our antics when we're together so it should be lots of fun. We just have to reign it in during the toasts and such. ;)
Anyway, this is a very boring post, i just realized. Oh well! I'm in a good mood and felt like sharing, there it is. Hope that you're all enjoying the sun if it's shining in your area!
