A day with R2D2 and C3PO

Last week we took the boys to see a Star Wars exhibit at a local museum. I do not like Star all, never have, probably never will. But like many things, it's not all about me. (Sigh) 
Even though I'm not a fan, I have to admit it was pretty freakin' awesome! The boys were able to make robots and program them to go through obstacle courses, make magnetic pod racers, view costumes from the movies and pose with their favorite characters. There was also a Millennium Falcon simulator where C3PO took us on a tour of the galaxy. The boys loved every single minute of it.
After the museum we took they boys out for lunch and a little walk around the canal. It was a great afternoon. Hopefully we'll have many more of those this summer!

Well...I suck

I've been horrible at keeping this blog updated! I would say I've been busy, and I have been, but not that busy.
The kids are out of school for the summer now. They finished up last Thursday. Nathan finished out the year with all A's and is officially a big time 5th grader. He's practically a man!
Brandon had a very hard time leaving kindergarten behind. He absolutely loves his teacher and would be perfectly happy staying with her for the rest of his school career. There were lots and lots of tears shed in his classroom on the last day. By the kids, his teacher, the teachers aide and me. It was an emotional day!
Now that summer is here, we've been playing outside, riding our bikes, eating ice cream and planning adventures.
Summer adventures...I'll keep you updated.
