I am able to get a free moment to write in the blog. Lucy is playing with Leo’s garbage truck and Leo is eating chocolate ice cream. So I am free until the ice cream is done.
It is labor day and everyone is back to school tomorrow. Or as Leo says, “me and Daddy are going to go to school. Mommy is going to work. Lisa is going to Yoga. And Lucy is going to the hospital.”
Up until the part about Mommy, he is pretty much right. Leo often associates Lucy with the hospital because that is where we got her. But not to worry we are not sending her back. She will be at home as usual.
To prepare Leo for school, we had to give him a haircut. Look at how much happier he is after his haircut.
This time Daddy got to do the haircut. I think he did a pretty good job.
We’ve done a couple things to celebrate the long weekend. Saturday morning I made pancakes for the family. We were pouring the syrup on Leo’s pancakes and a huge film of green mold came out. I didn’t even know that syrup had mold. Turns our you are supposed to refrigerate syrup after you open it. So we scraped off the mold and kept eating. No one is sick yet.
Saturday afternoon we went to the park in Palo Alto. Caleb doesn’t think we have enough pictures of him and Lucy so here they are together in the park.
And then Sunday we were looking for something fun to do. So Caleb suggested that we look up on yelp the best ice cream store in Silicon Valley and then go make a trek there to get ice cream. Turns out that the best ice cream in Silicon Valley was exactly next to that same park that you saw the picture of Caleb and Lucy in. We’re not sure it was really the best but it was still a fun trip. (Rick’s ice cream).

Blogging is an adventure stealing the computer from Lucy. First she climbs over my legs. Then I move the computer to the other side.
Now back to ice cream. When we got back to the minivan after eating our ice cream the back door was wide open. With our fancy minivan the way you close the door is you pull on the handle a little bit. But that makes you lazy. So much so that even pulling on the handle can feel like a chore. And like other chores sometimes you just forget to do it. Luckily nothing was stolen. Which was to be expected because we were in Palo Alto. In Palo Alto it is so sunny safe you dont even need to close your car doors.
Now back to photography. Leo is getting better at photography. Look at these pictures of Mom and Dad that Leo took.
Actually, these next two are more typical. Or typical for a stellar attempt from Leo. Most his pictures still look like a blur of floor.
Now back to how I feel when I’m hanging out with the kids. Lucy always needs a hug. And if I’m hugging Lucy, Leo needs to climb on me. Sigh. And I’m still pretty happy ‘cuz they are nice kids.
