Rock-A-Bye Baby, In the Treetop...

I think this is the third year that we've had a Cook Out on the Hill for Memorial Day with all of our friends.  Our crowd was a bit smaller this year, than years past, but we had a good time anyway.


JP found a giant 2 man sling shot, capable of shooting water balloons up to 200 yards.  We managed to dent the side of the barn a few times in the process.

Afterward, the girls invited 2 of their girlfriends for the FIRST EVER INAUGURAL TREE HOUSE SLEEP OVER.  We packed them in like sardines, and despite over night temperatures that hovered down around 35 degrees, they stayed snuggly warm up there.

They had a walkie talkie in their possession, should they need to contact us.  We heard from them only once, at about 10:15 PM.  "Daddy!  Help!  It's an emergency!  There's a giant cockroach on the ceiling!  S.O.S.!  S.O.S.!" 

By the time he made it up the tree to rescue the damsels in distress, the vermin had scurried back into a crack.  Cute.

It has been a long week.  The power was out overnight twice, necessitating L and I to start school at McDonalds on their free Wi-Fi on one morning.  J had SO MANY field trips and fun things and very little school last week.  L had her last Speech Therapy session and her first Piano Recital.  So...it has been nice to be a bit lazy today!

We have 4 more days of school, no more piano lessons, speech therapy, or swim lessons this week.  It's do-able.  I think I can...
