It's official -- we're on Summer Schedule around here now!
I usually plan our weeks to have some kind of outing four mornings a week, with one day being designated Movies And Popcorn Day. That day, we ignore the weather and stay inside and watch movies and eat as much popcorn as we can manage. The kids love it, and I can get some stuff done around the house. We usually also have a Pool At Home Day and at least one To The Park Day, and a Fountain Day.
Today was our Fountain Day!
The Stony Point Fashion Park, a beautiful outdoor mall nearby, allows children to play in their main fountain when the weather is good. It's a ground-level fountain, so no pool of water, and the jets are synchronized and timed to spray in various combinations and patterns. The kids love it, and so do I. This is the first year we have been able to go sans stroller and diaper bag and it was HEAVEN. I celebrated by getting myself a Caramel Frappuccino (just a little one, no whip).
We're home now, still smelling like sunscreen and warm sunshine. Noah is napping, and Wren is playing fairies upstairs in her room. It's quiet and I am going to write and clean a bathroom (yeah, so utilitarian, but it's filthy!)
Tonight? Dinner out with the family....Quaker Steak & Lube for WINGS!!!
I love summer.
