well, it's a good thing the babes were out of bed this morning before 7:30 (a rarity), because we had Things To Do!
while ours was technically still working, it was barely limping along (one chamber had a slow leak that we couldn't find, and then a couple of days ago the bottom got a very large -seven inch or so- tear), it would have taken quite a trick to fix it.
so off to the store!and then home again home again to pump it up and get it heating under a hot sun.
while waiting for that, Trevelyn and his mama went over to pick up his #1 Birthday Present...
Spore's Galactic Adventures!
very exciting business, that.
to the skating rink/arcade/bounce house/jungle climbing thing/water park!
a stop off at our favorite meat market for some barbecue deli-ci-oso-ness...
and another stop to take care of business (a serious larvae problem is going on in our pond) via a couple of beautiful goldfish -named Harold and Maude- :) (Mama named them, with permission)
and to home again,
to finish filling up the pool
and to welcome Harold and Maude to the family.
and to play Spore Galactic Adventure. and Sonic. and Clifford.
and for a glass of beer. or two.

(oh... okay. And Jane's Addiction, Bob Marley, The Beatles, and Bob Dylan)
we're finishing up our supper
heading to the front for fireworks...
and I dunno what else the day holds.
what can I say?
so, So Good.
