My love bugs chased chickens, got dirty and ate ice cream. A perfect summer day. (for those two hours.... Come on, it's us! You know we were naughty at some point!)

We had quite the afternoon at Davis today. Bub got to hold a frog and (my new favorite reptile) a fat tailed gecko. He also pet a boa and a bearded dragon.
Cubby tamed this baby croc and eagerly baby smacked all the above reptiles.
Cubby very nearly was headbutt ed Little Rascals style by a surly goat. The boy was oblivious because he was something busy hugging the other goats. Davis must have a LOT of insurance!
Then we had lots of sugar and ran around the gift barn with our friends.
Banner day behavior-wise!
I'm exHAUSTed but it was worth it to see them enjoying themselves so thoroughly. It's one of the few places where both boys can enjoy all of the activities. A nice send off to summer.
This is a unicorn t-shirt that Bub designed for me. I was dramatically laying on the floor, listing off the infinite wonderful things I do for my children that go unappreciated.
Bub got very stern and said I didn't remember that he appreciates when I buy him things and take him to Dairy Queen. Then he drew me this mock up of a shirt "that I can order online" because my favorite thing is unicorns.
We went for a dip in our favorite Lake this afternoon.
Cubby was typically fearless and tried to swim at every opportunity. Bub was trying out his new passion: fishing.
Then we went to dinner at Bub's favorite place. He sunk back into the booth, soaked in the pleasure of chocolate milk and chicken fingers.
"I love eating at restaurants!"
Why's that, Bub?
"It's so relaxing. And the food is much better than at home."
He redeemed himself later as I was in a snuggle sandwich with the Littles.
"Daddy, you'd get more attention if you were Mama. "
I guess he doesn't blame me for the lousy cooking.
Cubby is just about the craziest imp! He's "exerting his personality" rather strongly these days. Maybe I've mentioned this before?
Yesterday, he tried to turn on a large and heavy toy globe and when it didn't work he picked it up to smash it against the ground! Now, I have no idea where he gets this hot temper. Oh, wait, he's just like me. DAMN IT!
