Rob has a yearly canoe/dudes camping weekend. Because in my mind camping in July is
Rob's always afraid of leaving us, we do live a crazy life with these two sleep hating crazy boys, but all was well. I mean, not one load of laundry got done, the vacuum didn't run, and I'm pretty sure I gained 6 lbs in onion ring induced bloating. But we had a fun weekend too!
First of all, Aunt Tam came to hang out, which is always a fun time. We took her out for Purple Cow her first night in town, aka Child Friendly (and Dairy Free friendly) eating. We recently discovered that Purple Cow has milkshakes with soy ice cream and soy milk. Yay for Rylan and Max. Tammy and I shared a Dreamsicle shake full of the devil's milk.
Saturday morning we went to Wonder Place. Rylan was invited to his very first classmate birthday party. It was for this completely adorable girl, Emily, or if you are Rylan, "Emerhee". I ok'd it with the mom paying for the awesome Wonder Place Party that I bring Maxerton, since they have a certain number of kids they are allowed. Yay for some no-shows, Max got to come too. And I'd say he enjoyed himself completely.
My boys spent a good deal of time in the doll house area. I would be a little nervous, but it was something new to them.
Not only did Rylan's awesome teacher show up, but she played with the kids more than their own parents. That is her hand doing a puppet show for Rylan.
Max preferred his shirt wet to the point of being see thru and no shoes.
I finally got to meet Kate that we'd heard so much about.
Birthday girl. She was so completely precious and]
Max might have had a pink cupcake. I'm not sure.
This is 3 year old for "putting the moves on". You blow the party blower directly in the girl's face.

This is Rylan pretty much sleeping standing up inside the tent.
Let me just tell you, I had heard rumors that Sunday morning is the best time to go to Chuck E. Cheez. Prior to Sunday morning I thought NEVER was the best time for Chuck E. Cheez. I stand corrected. Sunday morning at Chuck E. Cheez is AWESOME. There was like 2 other families there. Chuck E. himself came out and did a little dance with the kids and at the end he threw like 500 tickets in the air. My kids didn't GET it that they should be excited about all the tickets, but we were able to score quite a few from nice workers that felt sorry for the mom wearing a Sunday Mass skirt at Chuck E. Cheez on a Sunday morn. I would definitely suggest going at this time! This was our weekend in a nutshell. We did good with no Rob but we are glad to have him back!

This Chuck E. was okay. He got a hug.
Best day of Max's life. He got to ride a "hearse"
**I realize there is not one picture of Aunt Tammy in this post. I'll try to do better?
