I can't count how many times weekly my boys ask if we can go to Monkey Joe's. They love it there. And I, I don't love it there. It's always busy and always loud and I'm always exhausted by the time we leave.
After a quiet afternoon of naps and cartoons, the boys decided to give their bikes a "washdown and make them squeaky clean." I know we are that family on the cul de sac that the neighbors roll their eyes at or secretly watch through their blinds. My boys offer entertainment that I outta start charging for.
A day of jumping and splashing, of sliding and running. The best part? Three kids sound asleep by 7:45 pm. I love busy summer days and easy summer nights.
