July 2, 2009: Wyatt instructs Augie in proper keyboard banging technique. We keep this old keyboard around in hopes that it will distract August when he wants to rip the keys off our laptops. It hasn’t worked yet.
July 3, 2009: Augie has a new love of veggie sticks. I bought a big bag at Costco without fully reading the nutrition information on the bag so I didn’t realize that these are basically just green and orange potato chips. If the baby had his way, he would eat these for breakfast lunch and dinner.
July 4, 2009: We had a 4th of July bbq! It was kind of thrown together last minute, so I didn’t think a lot of people would be able to come, but the turn-out was really great. At one point, Zach broke out his guitar to play “Country Boy Will Survive” and one of our young friends was sweetly enthralled.
July 5, 2009: This is what my freezer looks like. The baskets were meant to organize it, and I suppose they help a little, but I still don’t remember most of what’s in there.
July 6, 2009: Monday the boys and I drove up to Fairfield and did the tour at the Jelly Belly factory. The tour was free, but we had to wait in line for over an hour. We all had to wear these silly paper hats for the tour — even Augie! Afterwards we got lunch at their cafe and Wyatt had a pizza shaped like a jelly bean. Cute.
July 7, 2009: While we were at the candy factory, the city came and tore up the entrance to our driveway. They dug a two feet deep hole and then left. They came back 3 or 4 times each on Tuesday and Wednesday, including this time when they sawed away more of our driveway. They only stay for 10 or 15 minutes each time. When they leave, it’s really hard to tell what they’ve done (besides waking the baby up from his nap). We think they’re fixing some broken pieces of curb, but I’m not sure. I’m going to ask tomorrow.
July 8, 2009: Augie likes raspberries.
