VBS, Milkshakes, Lightning Bugs, Fishing, and Father's Day!

We had a GREAT week last week with VBS and swimming lessons, but MAN were we tired folks by Friday afternoon. The boys took crazy long naps Tuesday-Thursday {James didn't want one on Monday or Friday}. It was a long week full of FUN.

Extra pictures that I don't think ever got posted from VBS:

Celebratory milkshakes and french fries for lunch after a week of successful swimming lessons!

Lightning bug catching on Friday night:

On Saturday morning we went to ride the train with some friends. Lots of fun, but no pictures! We ran a few errands and then headed home for lunch. After naps we met some friends to fish and play. We got POURED on, but we had a great time!

Above - AC is four months older, but clearly smaller than Will. She likes to boss him around and MOST of the time, he lets her. On Saturday night he was climbing the gate trying to open it and she came over to me and said, "Him's tryin' to get out! Him's not BIG enough. Only I'm big enough." I said, "You're smaller than he is!" She said, "NO! I'm not. Hims smaller than me!" I got so tickled!

On Father's Day we wound up skipping church. I was up for part of the night because a nameless little boy kept climbing in our bed and he and Eddie were taking up SO much of it that I was falling out. I finally moved to the sofa where I got an okay nights' sleep. Not great. I guess Eddie felt sorry for me because he didn't wake me up.

Later, we did Father's Day gifts for Eddie - something that Will made at school, a new hat, and a Shutterfly book.

We let him take a good nap...

And then we went to Kelly's for swimming and supper.

Saw this guy on the way out there. I think it's an Eastern Kingsnake. I was just glad he was miles from my house. I get that he's good, but ICK.

James fell asleep in the car three minutes after we left Kelly's house and slept for 12 hours. TWELVE hours.

On Tuesday morning the boys had Pirate School! {It's day camp at the preschool but they have themed weeks.} I took Captain Hook and Jake but picked up James and Will...not sure how that happened. On Thursday they're going to swap costumes.

Other than that, it's been more of the same!
