Annie and I are on a fun girls’ trip this weekend with our friends Jayme and Dylan. You really haven’t lived until you’ve spent ten hours in a car with two seven-year-olds. O_O I think Jayme and I have suffered permanent hearing loss from all of the squeals and shrieks. But we’ve had a ton of fun so far, especially if stopping 187 times to go to a bathroom is your idea of fun.

Good thing they’re cute.

Cool Stuff

~For some reason, James is absolutely OBSESSED with Captain America. Mike and I are pretty sure he’s never seen a Captain America movie or cartoon or anything, but hey, when you find a super hero that speaks to you, who cares? He picked out a Captain America lunch box and thermos for school. I thought for sure he was going to flip out over this shield lunch box, but he went with a classic movie scene. I love that kid.
~Schuyler needs one of these fence windows. She is obsessed with our neighbors (and their cat).
~This is the greatest book ever and you all should order it.

Happy Sunday, everyone!
