This morning we had so much fun that Benji couldn’t calm down enough to fall asleep at nap time. Ingredients for this exceptionally fun morning:
- Go to Nana’s house and see Builder Pat at work. Eat lots of raspberries.
- Go to St. Edwards State Park and find a half-dozen fire trucks from various agencies doing training.
Get permission to closely examine the trucks while the firefighters are training. Conduct said examination with Miss Ellen.
– Hike to the lake like a big boy, walking the entire way there and most of the way back.
While at the lake, learn what I mean when I say, “Watch out or your feet will get wet.” But, simultaneously, do an excellent job obeying when I ask not to go deeper.
– After hiking to the top up from the lake, go play in the and box at the play area. Pour sand down front of the diaper. Then receive an arrow popper from Miss Ellen.
– Go home and eat lunch, then go for a diaper change and reveal a huge gooey poop coated with sand, and sand coating everywhere. Rinse off in tub before nap. I put shoes, socks, and pants out to dry on porch with no hope that they’ll ever be not wet again. The shoes are utterly soaked.
– Feel too darn excited to nap, even with two hours in a dark crib.

I can’t believe he wasn’t tired enough to sleep after all that!
I know – I was sure he’d conk right out when we got home. I guess he was so wound up, he couldn’t calm down.
