Today was one of those hot an humid days that makes me long for the summer I lived in coastal Maine. It may have gotten hot during the day, but it cooled in the evening and the humidity was bearable, if not absent. I also began to wonder what happened to spring. Friday I was wearing a sweatshirt, today I was sweaty just stepping out my back door.


I'm not even going to pretend I spent a significant amount of time outside today. Unlike my super hero husband, dad and father in law. They spent ALL DAY out in our back yard assembling Madeline's birthday present and still have to come back later this week to finish up. They are Madeline's hero's for sure. (more on this very, very soon)

So our internet service has been restored (as you can see) and I am back to the world of the technologically over stimulated. (and loving every minute of it) A year ago I took a day and unplugged. Now that I have two children, one of whom is not napping in the afternoon, I just don't know if that would be possible. That and I have a fancy phone that I can do just about everything on and it is hard for me to resist it. It's very shiny. So unplug? Maybe. That was a year ago this week. Maybe I should try it again. Although the pool isn't open yet. Anyone else up for the challenge?

And just so I don't leave you photo-less two days in a row:

Lydia - March 2010
Night Night.

Lydia has inspired me to head for bed. Hope your sleep was peaceful Mutzie. I love you!

I hear you on the crazy Midwest weather. I am just so glad that we are (hopefully soon!) getting a window air conditioner for our bedroom. Sweet picture!

Alexander just tried to climb on to my lap (a harder and harder feat these days) and saw the picture of Lydia. He cocked his head to the side, looked for a minute and pronounced, "She is very cute." Smart boy. I totally agree.

Love the new pic! I know what you are saying about the weather...I spent all day at the Cards game yesterday and even in the shade it was HOT! So hot that I had Braxton Hicks! Blech!
