self deprecation

today was a hot summer day, and what better way to celebrate than pack up the kids-- right when they got off the bus-- and head, maybe for the last time this year, to jordan lake. we met our friends there, and only baked for a few hours in the waning sunlight, but it was divine, and absolutely what i needed after a busy day of multitasking.


the kids had an unseasonably fabulous time rolling in the dirty sand, and playing neck-deep in the murky water. the only thing that was a bummer is that we had to leave in time for dinner, homework, and a bath-- with bath being FOREMOST. we buried vincent in the sand, and nicole made a big sand-turtle sculpture.

the following photo is proof that i am humble enough to show a REALLY unflattering picture of myself on the internet for the whole wide world to see. how could we resist posing in front of the "hot ashes" bin with our butts in the air? by the way, my skirt has shorts under it. those are not my panties. but anyhow, it's proof that we are two really clever and classy ladies. hot ashes! snort!

Hey, not fair, we had rain all day today!

But those are great pictures and what a good idea to whizz the kids off to the lake for the afternoon. Glad you guys had fun!

The kids there get out early on Wednesday, too? Maya got out early today, but no lake for her. Guitar lessons and rain. Sigh.

At least you both HAVE hot ashes. If I can find a sign that says, "flabby ashes", I'll pose. ;)

yea it was rainy and cold here yesterday! But then the day before it was beautiful weather. I'm just waiting for the leaves to change color, but i feel like we're skipping from summer directly into winter!! Nice pictures, although i can't say i believe those are shorts hahahaha:) jk!

There used to be a paved lot in Boston that had "NO PARKING" painted on the wall, and at one point someone altered it to read, "NO SPANKING"...I have a similar picture of the future Mrs. L in front of that wall...

Frankly, Melissa, if I had that hot of an ash I'd be posing, too. And great legs!

I had to do a double-take though when you said, "Beautiful hot summer day." Thought this post must have been written in Aug instead of Oct. Lucky you guys!
