August 19 - from the airport to visiting Remy (and his parents)

 We were up early...
Benjamin and William were buckled in the car before the suitcases were all in!
I asked Benjamin if he was excited about going to Hawaii.
"Mimi, I'm petrified."
I was SHOCKED...I thought he was talking about flying.
I asked him why he was petrified...
he said he didn't like to get wet!
Haha...(he swam with the dolphins, paddle-boated, snorkeled...0
 I dropped them off at the airport about 7:30 a.m.
and I took off to go visit Remy and his parents!
 It was so fun to see them in California!
Remy is such a little man!  He was excited and we had such a good time!
 We went walking around town...

 and went out and ate some pizza!

 Driving back to the house, Remy kept talking about the 'fire' in the sky!
The sun/moon...can't remember which one it was...was RED...there were fires burning around California...and the smoke, I guess, definitely gave us a RED sun/moon.

I told Remy to wake me up the next morning!  
I'm loving making the rounds to see all these little men and their parents!

August 18th at Lindsey's

 William was ready to jump on the trampoline.
 I told him I couldn't jump since my knee isn't 100%.  He told me I could SIT on the I did. 
 William...he's a beast on that trampoline!  Look what it does to his hair!  The electricity just makes it stick straight out!  What a riot!

 When he wasn't jumping or rolling around, he had my phone taking pictures...sometimes he took pictures of me taking a picture!

Uh-oh...time for sunscreen!
 William took pictures of our feet...
His are SO DIRTY from jumping!

 He told me to take a 'picture of my butt!'

 I'm always finding a multitude of his selfies on my phone. 

 Back inside, I'm not sure what we were doing here.
 We were hanging out playing while Lindsey and Donnie finished their packing...
they were heading to Hawaii on the 19th.

10 days in Hawaii!  How fun!
They'll be back a little over 24 hours before Benjamin starts his first day of second grade!!!
I just can hardly believe he's a 2nd grader!!!

What a fun day!

Hanging out at the park on Wednesday afternoon

 It was August 17th..and it was hot.
We hung around the house after I got there until late afternoon when it started cooling off a little bit.  

 William likes to use my phone and take 'selfies.'  
This time, he let me in with him!

Then we headed to the park to meet some of their friends.

 We got there a bit earlier than their friends, so Benjamin and William decided to have a snack!

 Lindsey's is so good about getting sunscreen on her boys! 

 This is a great park!  It's close to their house...and it has multiple play areas.
There's a lake...with a trail...I think about 2 miles...that goes around it.
 I wanted to take a walk, so Benjamin said he'd go with me.  We walked, collected a few feathers, then sat on a bench and ate peanuts!

 Eating peanuts!  We ate the majority of the package!
The sun was so intense!
It was beautiful in the colors it reflected off everything...and everyone!
We didn't leave here until late...
Donnie was out of town...
so off we went to 'The Counter"...a delicious hamburger restaurant!

Hamburgers, shoestring french fries, and watching the Olympics on the big screen...
what a fun afternoon and night with my two little men and their mama!
