Crazy Week

We have had a busy week so I am just going to dump everything we have done right here...

On Friday, we went to Sonic and then to the Drive-In theater. We saw Inception and Grown Ups. There was hardly anyone at the place because of the weather. It was so hot and humid and then there was a massive downpour during Inception. You aren't supposed to have your car on but we would sneakily turn it on so we could use the windshield wipers. We were definitely fogging up the windows. Alex woke up between the two movies and watched Grown Ups with us. So he went to bed pretty late that night. We ended up going to bed at 2:00am.

On Saturday, we went and mailed our passport applications. I am annoyed with myself because I didn't change my name on my passport within one year of getting married so I had to pay the full application fee in order to change my name. Wal-Mart refused to take Alex's picture so we had to go somewhere else to get his done. It ended up being very cute. Except that he has a huge bruise on his right cheek because he faceplanted onto the edge of the TV stand.

Then we went to the Easton Farmers' Market. It is "The Oldest, Continuous Open-Air Farmers' Market in the United States." I feel like that is a stretch. Whatever. It was fun. We got to see the Zucchini 500. People paid $5 to decorate a zucchini and then race it down a track. It was really entertaining.

After the farmers' market we went to the Crayola Factory. It was really expensive and it seemed like Alex was too young and we were too old so we decided to just hang out in the store until the meter ran out on our car.

We went to the Lehigh Valley Zoo that afternoon. I felt like we had the whole place to ourselves and I think it was because it was hotter than the surface of the sun. We got to see some really cool animals and there were employees standing around telling us interesting facts and answering our questions. I think I liked it more than the Philadelphia Zoo, even though it was much smaller. Like, way smaller. I think I could have held my breath and run around the entire place.

On Sunday, Sam and I spoke in church. I will not be posting my talk here because (1) I didn't think it was that great, and (2) boring. After church, Danielle came to visit! Danielle is my ridiculous friend and stand partner from high school (no, not that stand partner). She is currently in the Teach for America program and she is working in Philadelphia for a few weeks. The TFA program is intense and so every time we went to Philly she was too busy/popular to see us. We were so happy she was able to come visit. Alex had been acting funny for a few days and we noticed he was burning up on Sunday. I took his temperature and it was 103.5 degrees. Poor kid.

On Wednesday, we went to the Phillies/D-Backs game. I have been looking forward to this game all summer. But the D-Backs got rocked. It was so sad. Sam was cheering for the Phillies because he likes getting in fights with me. The D-Backs ended up losing 7-1. And that one run came in the top of the 9th. Embarrassing.

That's why I just didn't get a new passport with my married name on it. Until a few months ago when my old one expired. Did you at least get it submitted before they raised the fees?

I'm jealous you saw Inception. That is definitely on my list of movies to see. And how fun that you have a drive-in!

I love to read your blog. Sometimes I can hardly believe that you have a kid. Is it weird being a mom?

Jared went to the drive-in this week with a bunch of friends. They saw Despicable Me. Because it had rained earlier in the day, it was actually pretty pleasant.

It sounds like such an exciting week :)
I'm sorry crayola was a let-down. I thought he'd be ok, but things might've changed since i went there.

We love the drive-in! We want to see Despicable Me but we will probably wait until we can get it on Netflix.
