Within Me Without Me

had a great week!

we popped fireworks at a friends house for the 4th of july. aidan had a great time playing with sparklers. if i knew how to put a video taken with our digital camera here on the blog, i'd post it so you could all see how darn cute he was with the sparklers. but here's a still shot anyway.

on wednesday, i drove up to cypress to visit katie and mom. i stayed for two nights - the first time i stayed over in a long time, but it really was nice to spend that much time. aidan and lucy (katie's daughter who is now 1) were really cute playing together. they kept pointing at each other and smiling and grabbing each other's heads and hands. very funny.

bed time was crazy. three screaming tired kids in an unfamiliar home trying to go to sleep is a difficult thing to face. i think i finally got both aidan and sadie asleep about 1:30 wednesday night, after much crying and tossing and turning. thursday was a little better.

on wednesday, we went to this place called the ruckus room, which is a big open building with four rooms that each have a couple of inflated jumper things, and/or climbing toys, bridges, and other outdoor playground equipment. the rooms are divided int o age groups, to make sure the little kids can play together safely without being run over by older kids. aidan had the best time, and even played without me in his eyesight for a while - big step!! here are some pics from the place.

stayed at mom's till friday, then came home. it was a nice visit.

    Is Katie visiting, or has she moved back again?

    That place looks really cool!
