|Mei loves books too!|
Today was fun though. After a morning playing outside, we all went to get hot dogs from the vendor near the Herkimer Library, something my husband has done since he was a child. Then we went to the library, even Mei. We picked some books to bring home, (*ahem* because we lost a book last year and haven't paid the fine yet, used books they were selling...), the kids played some computer games, read a little, played games and did some puzzles. It's something we'll probably do at least once a week. And maybe next week, we'll walk there, instead of driving.
After the library, we went home for baby nap time, and magically (yes, I do mean it was magic...) 4 year old nap time. Liam was laying against Daddy, and next thing we hear is *snore*. Almost two hours of peace and quiet, and it was hard not to daydreams of a peaceful summer vacation.

After our quiet nap and study time, we decided to go out to dinner and celebrate our first day of summer vacation more. Not the healthiest of meals, but we hit IHOP, as the kids love pancakes. And being kids eat free night, the entire meal was less than $20 bux. After that, a trip to the book store (the library and the book store on the same day...) where we read more books, and then headed home. It was a perfect summer day, though it might've needed a little gardening fun. (Dad mowed the lawn, does that count?)
Of course, I'm guessing by this time...next week, maybe?...I'll be ready for them to go back to school. And by September, I expect I'll be kicking them out the door.
