* We went my hometown last weekend. It was strange to see so many people downtown. Usually there is nothing going on but there is a new restaurant with outdoor seating, a new ice cream shop, and a new hotel going up. So it was kind of nice to see. My mom complained that "everyone always wants to sit outside". Yes, count me in. I"m in a office all day, so I find eating outdoors to be delightful.
* My mom also complained about the crowds. It's a town of 10,000 people year round. I'm afraid she is crossing over into old lady-dom. She didn't want to run the air conditioner. She didn't/couldn't walk very far. She repeated stories that I told her to me like she had heard them somewhere else. Her fridge was stuffed with food. Tons of food. This is a bit worrying and I'm keeping an eye on it closely.
* My baby girl turns seven on Monday. I don't even know how that happened. Where did ages 3-7 go?
* Camp only has three weeks left. They did a field trip to a waterpark yesterday and she was wiped out when she came home. She wouldn't eat dinner and we got her to drink fluids. She was asleep by 8:00 pm. I am wondering if she has her father's tolerance to long stretches of sun.
