Fun, Fun, Fun...

Gail and I went out for dinner and a movie last night, while Ben had a date with Staci, Ben's all-time favorite babysitter. They colored and threw water-balloons and watched movies and ran around and had a great time. We had a great dinner at Anthony's, our favorite fancy-eating-place in the North Country. We also went to "28 Weeks Later", a sequel to one of the 5 best zombie movies ever made!!!

I have included a trailer for the movie below, feel free to skip it if gratuitous violence and mind-bending frights are not your thing...




This morning, we woke up to some Mother's Day fun...lots of cards and some cool presents for Mom...


There was also some wreckage from last night's balloon masacre with Ben and Staci...I noticed these while walking Maggie...


A picture of some Mom's Day booty...


This is a low-quality digital picture of an old-fashioned printed picture of Zeke and Cedar, right after we brought Cedar home...Zeke died this week...he was a very good boy, and we loved him a lot...


Here's a picture of one of Ben's projects from his date with Staci..."It's a balloon guy with eyes" is how he explained it to me, and you can't argue with that...


Ben and I made french toast for Mom, he had a great time helping to make it, but decided that he doesn't really like the end product...no matter, Gail and I do...


Ben and Maggie had a good time playing on the floor while Gail and I finished our breakfasts...


Maggie got tired after a while, but kept on playing, albeit at a slower, less frenzied pace...


After the play session, she staggered away...and fell asleep in her water bowl...this is not staged or photoshopped...she can, and does, fall asleep anywhere...I suspect that the more awkward the position is, the more sleep-karma/credit she gets...


Gail went to the Paul Smiths College graduation after the french-toast-a-palooza, and Ben and I went over to the playground at Petrova Elementary School in Saranac Lake...he was working a whole "Indiana Jones" thing there this morning...hopping around, dodging acid and boulders and dinosaurs while he "rescued treasure"...


He also showed himself to be quite a swinger...he loves to feel the wind in his hair, kick and pump, and get swinging high enough to dance on the threshold of scaring himself...


It's a beautiful day, and we may go back out again for some geocaching this afternoon...

Maggie sleeping in the water bowl is a total winner and should be submitted for national recognition. As always, thanks for sharing.
