this has been such a weird week. back from vacation and right into summer break. we didn’t really have any days of break before we left since we took shane out of school a day early, got in the car and left for 12 days. so now I’m totally feeling at odds. the kids are not really antsy yet. enjoying lazy days of doing not much of anything. subsequently, I find myself in my jammies at 4pm and not very much food in the fridge because going to the store is just way too much effort at this point.
at any rate, here are my instashots from our not very eventful week. at least we had a holiday thrown in there for some variety, but even that was kinda lame, since micah spiked a fever mid-day and kind of ruined our plans.
some shots from our trip home last sunday.
shasta lake: I have an obsession with this place. it is so beautiful (at least from the freeway, which is the closest I’ve ever gotten), and looks like so much fun. there are always houseboats all over the lake, RVs lined up on the shores, people riding jet skis, etc. etc. makes me want to spend the whole summer on the deck of a boat in a bathing suit, with a bottle of some frufru wine cooler in my hand. the place just screams FUN.
a potty stop at a gas station. gorgeous view from the parking lot. (nevermind the creepy guy with the bottle-shaped brown paper bag who was sitting on the bench next to the door and decided to get up and limp toward us, only to turn around and go back to his bench, right before we left.)
nothing like an independence day fever to wreck everyone’s plans. boo hiss. he didn’t seem to feel too badly, and even protested when we told him he had to stay home with grandpa (who was babysitting our neurotic about fireworks dog) instead of going to see the fireworks at susie’s.
friday morning. I swear my coffeemaker was SO SLOW. it couldn’t possibly have anything to do with the late night and the way kevin was so unwilling to allow my wine glass to get completely empty. ever.
so there’s that. average, every day.
