Indiana Jones fever is gripping the Morningstar home! Ok, that may be a little strong, but the boys are sure excited about the new Indiana Jones movie, and Ben has been honing his skills on his musical foam whip. Yes, we spent actual money that we could have spent on something worthwhile on a musical foam Indiana Jones whip. But seeing the sparkle, the sheer joy in his little eyes as he wreaks havoc on unsuspecting family members makes it all worthwhile.
We went to see the movie Friday (work rented a theater - go Move Networks!) and all really enjoyed it, even if it did increase the fervor of Ben's whipping. Sure, it had a few hokey parts (what was the deal with the Tarzan scene?!?), but we all left singing the Indiana Jones theme triumphantly, so it must have been good.
As you can tell from the photo, Grammy and Buddy are in town this week, so I apologize for the long time between posts. They've been playing a lot of Lego Star Wars 3 on the Xbox, enjoying several Lego spaceship battles per day, and doing some quality hanging out. The weather this week has been less-than-desirable for outdoor activities and projects, but they still managed to make it to the zoo and the park, and they have also spent time neighborhood shopping, trying to figure out nice spots to focus their house shopping on when Dad retires. Today's our last full day with the grandparents, so I guess I'll go enjoy our time together now and give you a more complete update later - have a wonderful holiday weekend!
