Yesterday was an awesome day. We got up early and went up to Great Escape in Lake George (about an hour away to the north) with our neighbors and got our season passes for the year. I've been wanting to take the boys to Disney World, but it's a whole lot easier to go to the amusement park in our own backyard. And the boys had a great time. John is finally tall enough to ride some of the more exciting rides and both boys are adrenaline junkies anyway, so they had a great time! I'm looking forward to going back to the water park ASAP. It was in the 90s yesterday, and when you get used to it being "warm" in the 60s, the 90s are a major shock to your system!
Not that I'm complaining. After the winter we had, the heat and sun is much appreciated.
After we got home, I made dinner while the boys ran around in our neighbor's sprinkler, and then we got back together later in the evening to grill s'mores over our gas grill. Not as much fun as an open fire, but since they aren't allowed in Scotia, we made do. While we were out there, another neighbor who frequently takes walks by our house came by with her almost-3-year-old daughter and we invited her over to play on the swing set.
Amazingly, Tuendi was outside with us and didn't seem to mind the 4 children running around the backyard. Yesterday John sat beside her petting her for a long time, and I didn't have to restrain her. Maybe she'll come around.
We all had a good day yesterday.
