So Many Paperbacks!

I was going through some stuff in my office, and I found a whole bunch of paperbacks that are taking up space.  I am willing to part with them for $5 (mainly to cover U.S. shipping), so if you're interested, please shoot me a message.

The books I have include both The Ifs books and my picture books: There's a Monster in Mommy's Tummy and Mr. Chocolate and the Magic Js.  I am more than happy to sign them and send them.

Good Times at Grandma and Grandpa’s

Last week, the boys had the opportunity to spend some time with their grandparents and cousins. This is fun for everyone because we all get a little break from one another and the kids get to do something exciting while we work. Us parents got to spend a few days with them, then we turned them loose for adventure.

They had such an amazing time. Aside from having fires and making s’mores, they went to the aquarium and the zoo in Salt Lake. They stayed the night in a hotel and got to go swimming—which is something the boys always look forward to.

They watched the fireworks on the 4th of July and got to go to International Days (I’m not really sure exactly what this is, but they apparently have lots of delicious food, and my oldest made himself responsible for taking care of any leftovers).

Now that they’re back, the oldest has to go to summer school. He’s not overly thrilled, but he needs a little extra help. We’re also starting karate, so that will be something fun for all of us to do and get us out of the house for some exercise.

How’s your summer going? Are you having a great one?

Enjoying the fire and making s'mores.

They tried to convince my youngest not to get this sprayer at the zoo, 
but as the day got hotter and hotter, it turned out to be a great purchase.

Vacation ends, and it's time for some much needed Zzzzzzzs.
