I really can't go out four days in a row. Seriously.
Things do not get done!
But the boys enjoyed going to the doctor on Monday for MM's checkup. The doctor let them listen to MM's heart with the stethoscope. On the way home, we stopped at a playground to play and have a picnic snack.
They had fun at their messy art playdate on Tuesday, although messy turned out to be a bit too messy for their tastes (much to my surprise!). But they're very happy to be painting their papier mache maracas today.
They had been looking forward for weeks to apple picking at MacPhee's. I was amazed that SA remembered details from apple-picking last year and was telling us about them in anticipation of this year's outing. We got 25 lb of apples, half Cortlands, the rest Galas and GingerGolds. It was a perfect day for our visit to the playground afterwards, too. SA met a friend who seemed pretty pleased to have someone giggle at his little boy humour. (Something about farting gumdrops? Yeah, I might have to nip that in the bud while I have a chance...)
Then Thursday was swimming lessons day. SA loves swimming lessons very much. The teacher took his class to the deep end this week with their life jackets on. And afterwards, to SA and JJ's delight, I had enough change to buy a chocolate milk from the vending machine in the hall.
