Today was the perfect early summers day.
We spent the morning at our local farmer’s market- complete with honey sticks (anyone?), doughnuts, and a half-flat of strawberries that is already mostly gone.
Isaac has been covered in red juice all day.
Oh, and a dip in the downtown fountain too.
In case you were there- my kids were the ones sticking their heads in the fountain and shaking like dogs. And getting completely soaked. Oh, and- in Joseph’s case- stripping NAKED for a brief jaunt until I grabbed him and made him put back on shorts.
(Some peonies from my backyard. And if you have an eagle eye, you might spot that its in a Stella bottle…)
We picked up some pizzas to bake at home, had some friends over for dinner, and went outside for a bike ride / to plant flowers until it got dark at 9:20.
There was a brief incident with a HORNET in the van while I was on the headset ordering the pizzas, but other than that it was a really stress-free day!
(I tried to bat it out the window, and it fell off and landed on my ARSE, and I had to drive with my derriere in…well…the air and towards the window while trying to fan it off. So. That wasn’t so neat.)
Staying at home year-around, I kind of struggle with making the seasons special.
(making batman hit my stomach)
So, I am working on a summer fun list with the boys (which I will post on here when I’m done)
but trying to keep everything else on the docket low-key, filled with ice cream, BBQs, and chlorine smells.
who’s with me?
