On Friday we sent the kids off to camp/school and went to the movies. Heartless, I know. I'd defend myself with talk of the limited outdoor activities in 98 degrees (!) but, really, I was seriously coveting some movie popcorn. [Super 8, if anyone cares. I didn't know what we were seeing & wouldn't have cared if we watched 90 minutes of previews, given how infrequently I get to go these days... but definite two thumbs up.]
On Saturday we took the kids to Dave and Busters. There was grumbling (from me) - I thought it would be a slightly bigger but equally grimy version of C.Cheese but it was surprisingly nice - my girl loved the lights and noise, the slightly upscale bar food was yummy, and I got in a few rounds of battleship - when not stopping my girl from tripping their electrical breakers. Also, bonus, we won so many tickets we left with a new ice cream maker, amongst other trinkets. [No one needs to do the math on what that ice cream maker runs normally. We were victorious!]
On Sunday we went to an airshow. The local DS group had mentioned a special needs airshow in conjunction with the big one downtown - all the planes were going to repeat their tricks at the small airport they were using as a base, and we could go with the promise of shade and smaller crowds. Since I already confessed my kid-free Friday, I don't mind telling you that I jumped on this not because of my daughter, but because of MY non-diagnosed issues with crowds and heat. Judge if you must! I could try to convince you we went to increase my son's disability/diversity awareness levels and/or meet similar families... but sadly, no. I was lured by an umbrella.

On Monday we made 16x more food than necessary and... blew sh!t up.
Photos forthcoming! Laundry and my DVR are calling.
