I have a new laptop now so I apparently have no excuse not to blog. The laptop is blue, tiny and super cute plus it has all its keys and a non smashed screen! We've been doing a lot lately and not writing about it so after a while it just becomes a blur. Memorial Day weekend was highly enjoyable with a trip to the zoo and the beach. Owain loves elephants and tries to imitate an elephant trumpeting noise that John makes. It basically sounds like he's blowing raspberries. Very cute! The beach was great, we got there nice and early before the crowds so we nabbed the perfect parking spot and put our towels down close to the hot dog stand. John and Owain went into the water and Owain enjoyed himself tremendously. John and I ended up with sunburns but Owie was fine, of course he wore sunblock and a hat. Funny how we don't give ourselves the same kind of attention. This weekend we had a fairly low key time, just a little shopping at University Village and John took Owain to the park and coffee shop while I was at my pottery class. Yes, that right pottery class, everybody's gettin' ashtrays for Christmas.
