Feeling left out

Mason had been having trouble seeing the clock and things that were far away, so he tried on Annabelle's glasses and he could see much better. So I made the brilliant conclusion that he needed glasses. He went to the eye doctor last week and it was determined that he could use a relatively mild prescription. We ordered glasses and today we picked them up!

I am now totally jealous. Dave wears glasses/contacts, Annabelle's worn glasses since 2nd grade, and now Mason. OK when is it my turn? I've wanted glasses since my twin sister got them in 5th grade. That was many years a while ago! I just think they are so cool and I look halfway smart in them. LOL Anyway Mason is excited. We got transitions lenses in them so they turn into sunglasses outside. Here's a picture with a cute little dimple...

I wrote last time that we were going to the zoo. It was great, our zoo is a good size but not too big. We can see most everything in one trip. The penguin exhibit is awesome. Annabelle made a friend...

And Mason kept moving his head back and forth while this penguin copied his every move...

They even rode a tiger! (Don't worry, it's fake)

The peacocks were strutting around...(sorry about the glare)

Last but not least, two cuddly lions.


I told you we went swimming at Green are a few pictures from then. Mason loves to get buried in the sand...

Here are the kids and Dave swimming...way out there...

And a pretty view of the lake.

It's been hot as heck here lately...I did spend several hours ironing though for some reason. I washed all the kids curtains, so then I had to iron them. I'm just glad it's done and they're back up where they belong!

Take care my friends!

  1. HEY--jen--don't worry your day will come--mine did around the age of 40 something or later--but I still only wear them for sewing (up close) or for traveling (far away)--but otherwise I don't need them!!!!!
    Looks like some fun family time!!!
    Is this "heat" something or what?????
    You did not miss a "post" about me getting a cat---Monday was the first I said anything to any one that I had finally made the move to get one---story will be on over the week end sometime!!!
    Hugs Di

  2. Jen,
    Your day will come. I had surgery for near-sightedness years ago and I was told then that once I got older I would be like most people and need reading glasses. Well after all these years of not wearing glasses I wear my Dollar Tree reading glasses to sew!
    Your children are adorable and looks like you had a wonderful time!

  3. I've been wearing glasses since I was Annebelle's age. Sometimes I find them to be a pain, sometimes not. It all depends on my mood! Looks like you're enjoying the last of summer. Even if it is blazing hot!
