It’s been a water-filled weekend. I mean that in a good way.
We waterproofed our Eureka! A-frame camping tent since we’d had about 3 weeks of dry weather. Of course, Friday morning, it was sprinkling, and then raining. So, it was my responsibility to disassemble our tent while it was raining before it got completely drenched. Calvin played outside in the rain while I worked.
My son and I spent the remainder of Friday morning cleaning our home for five hours. Okay, so he mostly played while I cleaned, but he did help a little.
He’s great at wiping up the floors with a cleaning rag. He’s also helpful at picking up his toys before I vacuum the floors.
That night, Steve and I got an opportunity to go to the movies while dear friends (who are expecting their first baby) hung out at our casa while Calvin slept for the night. Thanks Edward and Elisa!
We didn’t think it’d be a very long night. But since we go to the movie theater once a year, on average, we were clueless that it was opening weekend for Harry Potter.
We called our friends and asked if it was okay with them if we saw the 10:15 show, because we wouldn’t be back until after 1 AM.
They gave us the green light. We had a great time, and we felt like zombies for staying out so late-5 hours in a movie theater. Whew! The movie was long, full of incredible special effects and teenage romance. However, I felt the ending was unsatisfying and unresolved. I wished I’d gone to see Transformers 2 instead.
We spent Saturday recovering from our late night. We even took Calvin to the pool for more swimming fun. Now, he’ll kick his legs in the water. He’ll jump from the edge of the pool into my arms.
Sunday afternoon, we picnicked with our friends Edward and Elisa at Mint Springs. It was the perfect day!

Did you brave the lines for Harry Potter on opening weekend at the theater? If so, what did you think of the movie?
Have you played with your kids in the water this summer?
