On a lighter note...We've been having tons of fun out in the sun now that summer is here! In the last week, we managed to hit the splash pad, our favorite beach, and a friend's pool for a swim. So we're soaking up all the summer we can while we can. These are the days that make all those awful, cold January days worth it. The weather has been just perfect and our days filled with summery fun. This is not to say that each day is filled with rainbows and roses. No...in fact, at the end of each of these lovely outings, there's always some kind of fiasco that reminds me that I have 2 preschoolers with me. Like for example, when Ben fell in the public toilet as we were leaving the beach...EWWWWWW!!! He leaned over the toilet to flush it and slipped. And fell in. I just....the germ level was off the charts. It's almost as bad as the time he & Lauren put their tongues on the counter of the pharmacy during flu season. Maybe this is worse...I don't know - I can't think straight with all the Lysol fumes permeating the air. Anyway, more preschooler drama ensued on Friday when Ben "graduated" from his little sports camp and was being handed his merit award and Lauren decided at that exact moment that she was going to throw up, only to have me rush her to the bathroom where she decided she was fine. Mmmmm Hmmmm. I'm pretty sure she gets her dramatic flair from Brian..
In other news, my iPhone of 2 years has finally bought the farm. It's truly amazing that the phone lasted as long as it did...what with 2 kids playing games on it and many close calls with a body of water. Honestly, I really wasn't looking forward to getting a new phone. I get really attached to my electronics (ya I know - I'm a weirdo..) But think about it...this phone has been with me, by my side, under my pillow at night, for 2 years! We've laughed together, cried together. I've received great news and tragic news on that phone. I've clutched it in my clammy hands while laying on the bathroom floor with the horrid stomach flu while I updated my facebook status to "I think I'm gonna die.." I've googled everything from "chicken marsala recipes" to "how to remove a crayon from my toddler's nose" to "hot pics of Mark Conseulos". That phone and I have been on vacation together, and played countless games of Candy Crush together. Oh and don't even get me started on Siri!
Last week when the phone went completely haywire and refused to do anything but email, I knew it was time for a new one. So I headed down to AT& T to figure out what to get. As I sat there waiting for a salesperson to help me, I took a little walk down memory lane in my head...my iPhone & I skipping through a field of flowers saying our goodbyes. I was feeling pretty bad when suddenly I was approached by

I actually have an hour to kill before I have to pick up the kids...hmmm...what to do. You know what? I think I need another car charger for my new cell phone. AT&T - here I come :)
