I am always telling myself I should go post something on our blog. But then I can't think of anything interesting to say, so....I wait. I am sure this will not be interesting but I do have cute pics of Zack to post. The first one is him on Easter Sunday in his cute linen suit. The other one is him doing his newest chore...poop scooper! We had FHE on jobs and running the houshold, etc one night and I had it all planned for us to all "pick" the jobs we wanted to do. I pretty much knew what he would pick. Then he surprised us, instead of cleaning the windows next to the front door he emphatically chose pooper scooper. I was surprised and didn't think it would last more than 5 minutes but he has been doing it and quite well I might add. He has his little gardening gloves on and two small shovels. It takes him a while as he dawdles but he gets it done! I am quite proud.
Steve has been out of town this week in Chicago so it has been Zack and I all by ourselves. Now I know how it feels to be a single mom. Steve just rolled in about an hour ago, scooped Zack up and they are off to the fathers and sons campout. Zack was really excited, I hope it doesn't rain on them. But, what do boys care about a little rain and mud? So it is just me and myself for the next 20 hours. What shall I do??? Maybe a chick flick and a salad for dinner. My fave!
Also, see below, I have added pictures from our Hawaii trip, finally!
