Soaking Up Summer

It is starting to hit me that Paxton is seriously about to start school. Sure it's just half-day pre-K but for the first time in his life, he is going to be done every single morning. These are his last few days of being "a baby" because once school starts, I'm going to have to admit that he's a big kid...a big kid with a (dinosaur) backpack that makes his own friends and does worksheets and plays on a school playground with his class...whoa. 

So anyway, we are hitting it hard with the summer activities for the next few weeks. 

This morning, we got up early and headed downtown for Harkins Summer Movies. The boys love Curious George so I knew it would be a hit. We grabbed a small popcorn to share and headed in. The theater was pretty full and we ended up in the front section but the boys didn't seem to care. Porter sat on my lap and didn't move the entire movie. Paxton are the entire bag of popcorn and his fruit that I smuggled in. Halfway through the movie he announced (at full volume) that he didn't like this movie and he wanted to play my phone instead. 
After the movie, we finally hit up the Myriad Gardens splash pad. We went two years ago and I remember sitting and nursing tiny Porter while Jares chased Paxton around, so it was a little crazy to see them both running around full-speed this time. 
Porter was the kid walking up to the big kids who were hogging the best waterfalls and just scooting himself in next to them so he could enjoy them too. 
After we left, Jared asked us if we wanted to meet him for lunch so he joined us for some Sonic. We asked Paxton what he wanted and he said "a cheeseburger with no meat", we both laughed since that's just a bun and I asked him if he wanted a grilled cheese instead. He thought about it for a minute and said "I'll take a grilled cheese with meat".
