We've also been to the farm, where Mason didn't want to get off the tractor:
and then also loved hanging out in the tree house with the girl that he just adores, Addy:
We went to our family reunion:
Notice Mason's hair is getting out. of. control. He keeps getting mistaken for a girl again. This happened a few months ago all the time also. What is it? Just the longer hair on a boy in general, people aren't used to seeing so they just automatically think girl? Is it the pink glittery skirts I make him wear? REALLY PEOPLE most days he's in a polo or a shirt with a baseball on it ... I mean I'm all for girls wearing polos and baseball shirts - but really, HE'S A BOY.
And it's been hot outside so we've been doing a lot of arting and crafting inside in the a/c:
We love the cool triangle crayons! They don't roll off the tables! So smart.
Tomorrow morning I take Marc to the airport early and then it will be almost 3 weeks until we see him again - since Mase and I head to California before he gets back, and then he doesn't join us in California for another week or so. It's going to be the longest that he's ever been away from me, let alone Mason. I feel bad for him because he's going to be all alone on a business trip in North Carolina and then all alone here at home.
I hate when our little family isn't together for any amount of time. I love the little threesome that we are together and it just doesn't feel right to have him not be with us. Plus the fact that means that I'm having to be the parent 24/7 and that gets frustrating and tiresome at times. Marc is such a good, involved Dad when he is here that I really miss him when he's gone. At least once we meet up in California again he doesn't have any more trips for work until October. Yay!
