This is our last week of summer vacation, and I am sick with a head cold that I suspect I caught at the Renaissance Festival this past weekend. (Though given the lengths some people go for 100% time-period accuracy I should be grateful that it's just a cold and not the plague or smallpox.)
(This is also accurate. He has a new costume for next weekend that's some sort of muscle-bound executioner. He's looking forward to sentencing people to death for littering and/or cutting in the privy line.)
(Ezra also has a wonderful new costume that didn't arrive in time for opening weekend so he had to go with Alexander Hamilton and was NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT. And although he received multiple compliments on his "fine nobleman's jacket," he told anyone who would listen about the Great Costume Injustice. "I wanted to be a scribe but Dad didn't order my costume in time and so they made me wear this instead." [NOBODY MADE HIM WEAR ANYTHING!!] He was later distracted by Many Foods On Sticks and then a side quest for find the Perfect Author's Satchel. Which: ??? I dunno but it cost me $28.)
(Not pictured, Noah, who grudgingly attended but refused to dress up and walked around being as teenager-y as possible, except when confronted with a maze or stage show or exhibit of dragon bones or anything that was like, OKAY FINE IT'S FUN ALRIGHT??)
(Also not pictured, Jason, who dressed up as a dashing viking but did not upload any of the selfies I totally saw him take throughout the day into our shared album. He did, however, share no less than TWELVE separate photos of various loaves of bread he's baked over the last couple weeks.)
(Work's been really crazy for him so he's stress-baking. Meanwhile, I'm carbo-loading in preparation of absolutely nothing at all.)
In the latest round of the Summer Cereal Wars, Ike now sets his alarm very early to beat Noah downstairs. He will then blearily and spitefully eat a single bowl of cereal before he crawls back upstairs to bed and disappears for another couple hours.
Okay, how about some dog photos?
(You still have one more day to enter to win the $200 shopping spree from thredUP! Get up on dat.)
