Tomorrow, I have the day off from work and Will and I are joining a playgroup outing. I have been working part-time of the past year near home, and I've had the opportunity to pick up some more hours at a family housing site a couple of towns away. But I do realize that Will isn't going to be this young forever, so I want to try to play now, too! Last week we tried a beach outing, but the bacteria level in the water at the state park was high, so there was no swimming. So we played in the sand for about an hour, and then it was really apparent that it's not much of a beach day without going into the water! We stopped at Dairy Queen on the way home, where Will refused to have any vanilla ice cream. ?????

Tomorrow is a trip to a cool indoor playplace not too far from the house. And next week, we're going to try a beach trip again, this time to a different place. I'm grateful for playgroups, it makes it easier for a working mom to meet kiddoes for Will to play with!

Folks, what we have here is an all-out obsession. We got the Disney/Pixar movie "Cars" from Netflix a couple of weeks ago. Will loves it! In fact, he loves it so much that he wants to watch it all day, every day! He starts to cry and stomp his feet when the credits roll. He also won't watch it by himself, he wants Mama to watch it too! So needless to say, I've seen a lot of "Cars" this weekend. It's a pretty cool movie though. Pixar is working on a "Cars" sequel, it will be out in 2012. Will will be six years old when that hits the theatres. Think he'll still be totally obsessed? Absolutely!!
