Oh how I love summer, when I have constant access to Maya's chubby legs and sweet arms. This weekend it was hot. I mean, really, really hot. We were on our own on Saturday, as Kevin was on call, but then we had a great Sunday, and spent most of it outside. I have a lot of photos... The thing is, Kevin is going away tomorrow through Sunday, and he's taking the camera, so I'm going to try and make the photos from this weekend last all week. This will not be an easy feat, since I want to post them all right now. Anyway, yesterday, Maya and I went for a walk in the morning, so Kevin could nap (he had a rough night of call), and then, after nap time, we decided to go to a kite festival at Forest Park. Funny thing - we got to the park and followed the huge line of cars, and just parked where everyone else was parked. We didn't see any kites though! Instead, we found a giant Earth Day Festival. It was hippies galore. Seriously. Anyway, we parked the stroller in a field near the festivities, and flew a kite for a while, and just relaxed. We didn't feel like walking all the way to the Kite Festival, which was pretty far from where we parked. We had a great time, and I have a lovely sunburn, just to prove it.
We had a fun night, too. I'm not going to tell you what we did though, because I want to be able to post again tomorrow, and show you all the photos. I'm going to keep you guessing...
"Mommy, when will I get my turn to fly the kite?"
"Um, hello?! Is anyone going to come get me, or are you just going to leave me standing here?"
"See my belly?"
"Every day is more fun when Daddy is home."
"Did I ever tell you about my favorite kitchen drawer? It's got a huge array of cups, bowls, and bottles. I love me some plastic stuff."
