This Cat

Can we just stop for a second and have a laugh about this family member of ours, Tonka?

Word to the wise: if you would like to have a well-trained a cat of your own, choose a kitten who doesn’t know any better and make sure you have two VERY handsy kids around for the first year of her life.

At Least You’re Not Wearing A Plastic Bag On A 95 Degree Day

Niagara Falls was beautiful. And also scorching. And busy. Like overwhelmingly busy. But we had some pretty good moments there checking out the falls’ front, back and side views. Bastien had the world’s biggest hotdog for his birthday. And we enjoyed some synchronized diving acts by the kids at the Holiday Inn pool. And also plenty of certain moments that the kids would drop their iPods directly into the falls trying to get some great shots. Oh, and let’s not forget our $80 IHOP breakfast. Oh Niagara Falls, you so silly!

Third! Third! Third!

Bastien ran his first 5k this weekend. The Milford Memories 5k to be exact. Thankfully Diana can keep up with him and ran him on to a victorious 9:35 pace placing him third in his age group. Crazily, I also placed third which has NEVER happened. I still can’t believe it. (A not-really grueling 10:19 pace, for the record). And I also can’t believe our big prize was a USB drive bracelet with a ginormous bank logo on it. But whatevs. We are gonna wear those things with PRIDE. Because MAN am I proud that this all went down.
