Since I'm now 34 weeks (p.s. whoa!), we are quickly honing in on the end of my ability to travel, so went to the lakehouse one last time as a threesome over the weekend. We got out the boat for the first time in a long time and JM LOVED it. The three of us went out on Saturday morning and it was chilly enough that we had to wear sweatshirts, but we still had fun at a little beach out there. Because of last summer's drought, Lake Buchanan has been below normal lake levels by a lot (that is, DRY and creek-like in some spots) so we haven't gone out on it in a long long time. It was so nice to see one of the waterfalls past our house, again.
We also brought the boat back to Austin and had a blast last night with John and the J's. Art has been working on some renovations at Ski Shores and told us that they had an awesome new playscape and pizzas and stuff, so we went there for dinner. (sidenote: it was good! kind of like a Waterloo IceHouse on the lake vibe). The weather was so nice and the kids were so happy, even baby Sela who is just a little bitty. Rhys and JM thought the boat was super cool and because of the delay in getting our dinner (it was packed), and then when the self-proclaimed boating Stupids (us) had a tough time getting the boat on the trailer, we didn't get home and our happy boating baby into bed until, ehem after 9. Yes, we became the parents I have judged on occasion for having their kids out way too late on a school night. Being a parent, you learn quickly never to judge but still I get sensitive when I see kids out at 10 at the grocery store. Ehem. I'm pretty proud of myself for not having a coronary and letting myself have fun even though we got "off schedule." I will admit that I'm probably way too inflexible about this stuff. Not to mention the fact that JM was having so much fun. We may pay for it at some point, but hopefully although he went to bed frighteningly close to my bedtime, he'll still get into college.
