and here was my day, my fabulous, wonderful, full of so much love day...
morning starts with awesome norwegian pancakes from my awesome norwegian husband. and the world's best cup of coffee (i swear, i can't wait to go to bed at night so i can wake up in the morning and have a cup of coffee made by the husband).
and the loot from the kids and from aaron!
then luca and i were off to the coffee shop to hang out and eat doughnuts while true and dad worked on true's science fair project. pictured below!
while true and aaron were putting finishing touches on the project, luca and i decided to go for bike ride. we headed to our favorite bike ride trail and park, took a lap (impressvie 3 miles for luca and i had to work to keep up with him). we stopped to have fun in the park- it's so exhausting to chase him around and try and keep up, but kids have it figured out- sliding and jumping and spinning and running and climbing really is great fun!
we came home, i napped (i love to nap), and then back to green lake with the entire family- the boys played soccer while i went to be a sunday grocery shopping mom. still, i love this too! i came back to pick them up and we ended up continuing the soccer game- true and mom vs luca and dad. amazingly, the score ended being a tie.
back home luca amused us all while playing and singing along with neil young (old man take a look at my life, i'm a lot like you were)- he has decided he wants to be a rock star and a bike racer and he's quite sure he can do both brilliantly. i actually think he may right.
(and as a post note...my husband is so great because he was raised by a great woman...i sincerely thank kathleen erbeck every day of my life for having aaron, and for helping him to become the man with whom i will grow old).
