Fabulous Day

Wow is the weather fantastic today!!! I bet there are many people smiling from ear to ear as they enjoy their block party, birthday party, camping trip or Wedding Day.

The picture you see was taken in front of a fountain in Lagrange, IL. We went there to see a movie at the Lagrange Theater ($2.00 show). The movie was Meet the Robinsons and all five kids sat there for viturally the whole movie, mouth agape and eyes glued to the screen.

After the movie, I took the kiddos to the library to return books and get prizes for the summer reading program. They all got a bonus prize for playing a little Harry Potter scavenger hunt.

And guess what was waiting for me in the mailbox today???

My preordered copy of the final Harry Potter book...just in time for me to take with on the plane next Wednesday when I leave for Minneapolis!

The magic trick for me will be to NOT start reading it until Wedneday, or I'll wind up sitting on the couch the rest of the weekend reading it...and it's too gorgeous to do that this weekend.
