We decided last night to cook out back in the fire pit, sleep out back if the breeze picked up (it didn’t) and fish out back even though we didn’t have proper bait. It was possibly one of my favorite days in life yet! Max was inside the tent while reading a survival book. he was really into it!
Sam makes a mustache with a cheeto. Silly guy. We had gone down to the beach earlier, just the two of us, to play some soccer together. First one to nine points wins. I won, but I totally cheated. I am very hands on and that’s putting it nicely. I may have shoved the little man a couple or five times. I eventually drug him into the water, fully clothed (me, he was in shorts) and we swam for awhile. That really added to this being one of my favorite days, just that one on one time with him. All the fixings ready for the hot dogs. We drug out chairs and made makeshift tables from old luggage cases. Whatever works! After the food was consumed and put away, we played a round of what the boys call “Whitleyball”, basically just tossing it back and forth and working on our throwing and catching. I even got in on it after I put the camera down. At some point the boys thought they’d attempt fishing, even though we didn’t have any baitfish or worms. It didn’t last long! The little no see ums were eating up the boys. Max waiting for the ball to come his way. Sam tossing it towards Scott. Sam took this as we wrapped up the night. I had left my camera on the top of the car so I could join in on the ball game, and he was putting it away. I like it! Hot dogs on the fire pit grill. Jack decided to video what was going on using Sam’s birthday camera. This is what I fixed for the grown ups. And by “fixed” I mean I bought it on sale in the “pre made food” section and baked it up. Max and Jack enjoying their beef hot dogs. Max eating a potato skin, another on sale, pre made, take it home and heat it item. I love the pink stickers at Food Lion!
Sorry for the pictures being all out of order. I haven’t blogged in a year, it will take me a minute to figure the format out again, and it looks like wordpress has changed things around since I visited last.
What have you been up to this summer? Tell me about your best day!!
