After bathtime, we headed out on the patio (believe it or not, it was cooler OUTSIDE!) to read a few stories before bed. The setting sun was a brilliant golden pink color and cast its beautiful gold upon the childrens' skin, turning them so as well. So I took lots of pictures and then settled down for story time. Mattie spied my camera and, without any prompting, snapped a few shots of ME. It was really a nice thing. I don't have many pictures of me interacting with the kids, at least that are not staged, so it was a happy surprise.
Following, are some pictures of my golden children. I am rich, indeed.
Blueberries for Sal is not a solemn-ish book. I must have been making a voice here. Perhaps making a stern mama voice at the little snipe who is snitching berries by the handful...
And see that? My arms are TAN! In all my years, I think that is the most tan I have ever been. Most likely-the most I ever will be too. Pathetic, I know.
