Camp days have become unofficial stay-at-home/neighborhood days for us. With the timing and location of both The Boy’s and The Girl’s camps and The Tot’s naps (plus gas at $4+/gallon), it just makes sense to hang out around the neighborhood. The Girl did not have camp today, but The Boy did.
After camp, I invited Allison and her kids over to play, and O., who will attend Disney II with The Boy and Enver in the fall, came over as well. There were a few squabbles as Enver and The Boy tried to exclude O. on the basis of her gender or age (she’s not quite 5 yet), but for the most part, they did really well. We played in the pool, ate a bunch of snacks, and just hung out.
After everyone left around 3, I put a movie on for The Boy and The Girl and put The Tot down for a nap. By the time I was finished, both The Boy and The Girl had passed out in front of the movie. They all slept until nearly 6. We had dinner, and since The Dad worked late and I needed to tire them out a bit, we walked up to Baskin-Robbins for ice cream.
It was a good day.
