We have really been enjoying the last week despite the super warm weather. It is still humid and in the high 90s but cooling off a bit. At least compared to last week, it seems a bit cooler. So we have been braving the outdoors a little bit more. The kids are going to love it here. Yesterday, we went to a picnic the the residents from the Emergency Medicine program and had a great time. The residents that I will be working with are all great. The boys loved running around, playing in the dirt, and meeting new people. We even saw a turtle and caught a firefly. It was outdoor heaven. And today, our neighbor, whom the boys adore, brought over a toad he had caught in his yard. They loved playing with it and Ayden had a fun time holding it, dropping it, and catching it again. Hudson just kept calling it a "bug" but knew it was a frog.
And we went exploring out in the field behind our house to film this video for Father's Day. I think they had a fun time despite the pressures of a demanding director. I can't help but notice now as I watch it how Hudson loses his map, his backpack, his cup, and then his hat. I guess we are lucky we didn't lose him. But I can already tell he is going to enjoy the outdoors and all of our new friends.
