The boys continue asking to see their former babysitter, her husband, and their son. So, we happily oblige by inviting them over for a cookout / playdate once every few weeks. I think all the boys (and us girls) enjoyed the company, the cool breeze, and some yummy burgers, pasta salad, and ice cream cones.
The big kids enjoyed the ice cream too - despite the deer-in-headlights look you see here.
There was a chill in the air that made it feel like October instead of August and reminded me that time is running out for this type of get-together. At least for this year. Soon it will be getting dark well before bedtime and we'll be bundling up in jackets and hats. Until then, we're gonna squeeze every last drop out of summer.
