sunny day, sweepin' the clouds away

we try to put kale down to bed at other people's houses sometimes so we can stay and hang out longer. usually he will fall asleep for a bit then wake up and we have to go home early anyway or he gets to stay up way too late and i stress out. well, this past weekend, kale was a champ and fell asleep at friends' houses 3 nights in a row while mom and dad enjoyed the beautiful weather late into the evening. father's day was one of those nights as we watched basketball at the schuyler's and had a delicious bbq. earlier in the day, peter, matt, and sam went to shoot their bows and us girls and the kids enjoyed the sun in the backyard. it was glorious. i am sure i will be complaining that it is too hot in about a week but right now i am loving the sun and warmth. especially the fact that kale and i are home to get out in the sun and warmth!clapping because he is so excited to be in the froggy pool!
kale and mason
smith tolerated these shades for awhile...
...then decided he could see better with them on his head.
this is the apron i made for peter for father's day. now he can cook in style!

sorry this is dark or blurry, it is from the camera, not the camcorder

He makes it look so darn fun! We need to find an adult-sized froggy pool. Keep your eyes peeled...I'm sure there's one out there somewhere.

I agree, everyone should have a froggy pool! Have you tried the boys with a sprinkler yet, that's always a bunch of laughs. You all look wonderful. I'm trying to figure out how to put Kalebug's videos on continuous loop so my thumb doesn't get tired of hitting the arrow four thousand times! I just can't get enough!
Love and more love, Oma

Kale is such a sweet and happy boy. I love to watch him clap his little chubby hands. Love you!
