I have a new post up at Chicago Moms Blog about wanting to run and needing to walk because Nora's little legs are tired and Mommy, carry meeeeee!!
We're at Fox Lake this week. Rain turns the lake into a skittering field of static. We've picked strawberries, driven to Lake Geneva twice, read at two libraries, toured the petting zoo (this year no lemur jumped on Nora's head but the macaw tricks were the same-o, same-o - they live 90 years!), had a great dinner (licorice ice cream!) at a grown-up restaurant we had to leave on our anniversary three years ago because Mia was exhausted and unhappy, swam, hung out with beloved out of town guests and endured the stink of dead fish washed up by the flood. I'm tard.
Blue crane and dead fish in the swamp that is our backyard.
