Sunny and hot in the Tri-Cities

Tri-Cities, WA

The weather was normal today--90 degrees F. and not a cloud in the sky. Cameron and I went to see Superman Returns at Carmike cinemas in Kennewick. I ended up being a little disappointed with it, but it was still fun to see it. When I went out to buy some candy about halfway through the movie, only one person was working behind the snack bar, and about 10 people were either talking, wiping the counter, or standing around. When I leave my movie to buy overpriced candy, I want to buy it quickly so I can get back to the film.

When we got home, I took Cameron and Drew for a swim in my parents' pool. Drew didn't like it too much, but Cameron had a great time. My parents bought Drew and Cameron their own blow-up rafts, so Cameron spent a lot of time floating around. Drew would scream every time I tried to put him in the raft. Every time I stood up on the diving board, my parents' Gordon Setter Rocko wouldn't stop barking. My parents told me once he starts, it's almost impossible to get him to stop.

Later, the Grandparents watched the kids, and Brenda and I went shopping at Target and then at Columbia Center Mall. I swear that Target (pronounced "tar-jay" in my family) has the best prices on DVDs. They regularly have DVDs for $5.99 and $7.99--and they're usually good films. But I didn't buy any on this visit. I bought Game Boy Advanced games for Cameron.
