Zac and I decided on not buying fireworks for July 4th this year. I had to work late and by the time I got home I was too tired and the kids were already asleep. Instead, Alex and Zac barbecued a variety of meats so I filled the new plastic kiddie pool up with some water and lit some mosquito-repellent candles. The inflatable pool was too hard to keep clean.
I've been knitting things as of lately. I made a Harley Quinn-colored scarf for Emily and a little pink hat for Leah. Both of which turned out pretty good for amateur attempts.
Zac and I have been trying to exercise together because looking at past entries I can tell my figure has gone from comfortable giraffe to borderline elephant. We went for a two-mile walk to McAlister's the other day and pulled the kiddos in their wagon. My legs are still sore, but the experience was delightful for the kids, aside from the heat. I'd like to get something that attaches to a bicycle so we can pull them a little easier and without as much back-straining agony.
We took the kids to the mall yesterday so I could get Leah some new shoes. Her feet are growing so fast! There were some people in the middle of the mall who were building a castle out of red clay or some other earthy substance.
Zac had an interview at Blockbuster. He really wants the job and I'm hoping he gets it.
