July 23, 2010: Part of the reason the boys and I went to Iowa this summer was so I could attend my 20th high school reunion. The first event was an informal get together at a very hot and crowded bar in town. This is a picture of me with many of my besties from jr. high and high school. I love these people and it was so nice to see them in person for the first time in many years.
July 24, 2010: Our last day in Iowa, the boys and I went to a reunion potluck at a nearby parkÂ and then after Augie’s nap, we took a final swing through the splash pad with Grandma and Grandpa. I ended up flaking on the fancy reunion that night because the boys were having a hard evening. I also had stupidly booked our flight home at at time that required us to get up at 4:30 am. Next time, I’ll plan better….
July 25, 2010: Augie finally conked out while we were taxiing to the airport at the end of our first flight. We ended up being stuck on the tarmac for 45 minutes though, so he actually ended up getting a little nap in.
July 26, 2010: Back home and back in costume. Augie is dressed in a way too small Darth Vader costume and Wyatt is dressed as The Usual. The $20 I spend on that Batman costume was the best money I’ve ever spent on a toy for either of my kids. Two Halloweens and regular weekly wear for the last two years! I don’t think any of his regular clothing has even been worn with the same frequency!
July 27, 2010: Our lame, pathetic garden. It was such a cold summer that the only thing that really grew very well this year was the snap peas. Even the basil and zucchini didn’t do very well. 🙁
July 28, 2010: Augie has started climbing up on my lap when I’m working on my laptop and banging on the keyboard. It drives me crazy, but he’s really cute, so I don’t get upset about it.
July 29, 2010: Wyatt likes to read comic books in bed using his Lego headlamp. He also likes to sleep with five pillows. He does not like it when mom comes in and takes a flash photo of him in his dark room.
