We went to the Arboretum today.
No face painting this time, though. We'd (the mommy group) had forgotten it was Columbus day. I didn't even want to see the face painting line. The big kids were out in droves. There was a Eddie Coker concert going on too -- he was a riot! Schepps Dairy was there giving out free cartons of chocolate milk. Adrien got to have his first taste of this crack-for-kids. He loved it. Surprisingly, he managed to drink straight from the carton and not spill any. WOW. I'm not even sure I can do that, and I'm over 11 times his age. Check out some pics:
I hope it starts to cool off soon. I bought some Perfect Autumn Pumpkin candles and other home fragrance stuff from White Barn Candle Company the other day. So now the house smells like Autumn -- but we still have the AC on 75. When will it end?
Everything here in the household is slowly getting back to ordinary (ordinary as in my own personal definition of it). I'm finally getting around to getting some things cleaned up (with the help of Andi, of course). I think I'm going to have to take Adrien back to the doctor though -- we've finished the round of antibiotics (last Thursday) but he's still tugging at one of his ears. I hate ear infections. I feel so sorry for him. I really don't want him to be in pain. But all in all, everything is good.
But really, I hope it cools off soon.
