Rain again today. I feel like I live in Seattle.

Mason's new obsession is looking through his telescope into "space." It was so cloudy last night that we couldn't really see anything, but Mason swears he saw Mars. He says he saw something red. We did look around the neighborhood during the day, though. It was fun looking in people's windows until I realized that that's probably illegal - I'd feel really bad if I turned Mason into a peeping Tom :-0. We'll have to stick to looking at imaginary red planets from now on - maybe we'll find a real one!
Carter's become a banana addict. He can't get enough of them, and he scarfs them down in seconds. He must have a potassium deficiency.
We applied to adopt a dog today from a rescue shelter - a chihuahua/pomeranian mix. Mason has been begging for a dog for his birthday. We've tried everything to change his mind - offering a trampoline, swingset, etc. instead of a dog. He's set. SO...we're trying to get the smallest, least amount of trouble dog we can possibly find. NO puppies - we tried that once and sold it after 2 weeks.

It's not every day that you get to meet a whole new side of the family - that's what we did this weekend. We made a little trip south so Jas could see relatives he hadn't seen in 25 years or so. We even discovered a cousin for Mason and Carter - adorable little Kaison (in picture with Carter). It was Grandma Francile's 85th birthday, and we're thrilled that we got to spend it with her and her family. Mason was escpecially thrilled because he got presents - vintage toy cars from Francile and a telescope from Uncle Dennis. He's been dying for a telescope - he bugged us all the way home to promise we would let him set it up as soon as we got home so he could look at the moon. It's not hard to guess what we'll be doing tonight the second it gets dark :-).

We're working on getting into summer routine that includes fun things like free swimming, free movies, library summer program and the park (both free), and other free things. Gas is so high, we'll have to take out a loan to drive to all these places - especially the zoo (sort of free - after paid membership). I'm excited!! I just wish someone would come clean my house for free while we're out on the town. I'm not holding my breath.
