1. We watched a thunderstorm from the front porch. The lightning and thunder didn't scare the boy - he was fascinated. (He didn't like getting splashed by the rain, though.) After a super muggy and hot weekend, it was nice to see the rain.
2. My sister and I bought some wiffle-ball bats and practiced in the little league field. We all enjoyed pop-ice popsicles. There are certain things that make you feel like a little kid again. We should do them as often as possible.
3. The little boy ate two bites of broccoli with dinner, and even said "mmm". Broccoli! He was done after two bites, but I was impressed nonetheless. He ate a huge meal: salmon, sweet potato fries, and when he was done with the broccoli, he switched to peas and carrots. It's amazing how triumphant you can feel when your little one eats a full healthy meal.
