Watching the Wake

When I was a kid, we spent most of each summer out on our boat. Wake watching was always fun. Now, thanks to grandparents that still love the water, my kids have the chance to do the same...and they love it. In this case, Jack was sitting at the helm, side by side with Captain "Bubba" feeling like a co-captain...while the rest of us sat back to enjoy the ride. The boys especially like the random gutsy jet-skiier that comes along to jump the wake. Thanks, Ganna and Bubba, for a great summer kickoff weekend!

Driveway Chalk Plus Rain Equals Fingerpaint

The kids figured out that they can take their driveway art to a second
stage instead of watching the rain wash it all away. I had the kids
all day as Tara was on her semi-annual outlet excursion with Claudia.
Yard work was impossible with the weather so I concentrated on
vacuuming the vehicles. Before the rain really came down heavy, I kept
the kids from being underfoot with driveway chalk. Once they got the
fingerpaint going during the rain sprinkles they had a lot of fun.

Science of Spilling Apple Juice

I tried to snap a picture for Drew since Matthew put on his Tshirt
this morning. Jillian turned for the picture and tipped her juice cup
over. The boys are looking at juice audibly pouring over the side of
the table.

Speed Racer IMAX

The treat on some evenings the last couple of weeks has been watching
the HD Speed Racer trailer on the Apple TV.

Jillian and of course Tara have zero interest. Searching Comcast video
on demand last weekend we found Speed Racer the Movie available for
free. As crummy as the original cartoon is, far worse than I remember
from childhood, it is as sticky today as it was years ago. Jack and
Matthew were glued to cartoon movie.

While commuting with Tara yesterday I tried to get tickets through
Fandango's iPhone web site for opening night. Sold out for IMAX. So I
got some tickets for me and the boys on Saturday morning.

Lights dimming...

Boys are skirming in their seats...
