i know it's a cliche to say of children, "they grow so fast," but sometimes it's so true. both H and T are taller, funnier and smarter than i remember. that they get along so well with the boychik and girlchild is icing on that delicious cake. the first day anne and the boys were here, we went out to storvik park in anacortes. if you live within 25 miles of that park, it is TOTALLY worth taking your kids out there. seriously. it's huge, there are a ton of swings, play equipment, picnic benches, and lots and lots of room for running around. we brought snacks from the breadfarm and slough food, had nibbles and let the boys run around for a while. after that, we brought the boys home and let my kids babysit while anne and i picked up aaron for a rock concert! i was not familiar with the neon trees before the show, but they were awesome. i haven't been to a show in so long; i was kind of out of shape for it. i brought a purse (rookie mistake!), wore the wrong shoes, and was hot and sweaty for most of the show. we had a great time, though, and it really made me wonder why i haven't been to any shows in so long. it's exhilarating.
