The long weekend was a fun-filled one around here. We’re not big relaxers. I use the term “we” loosely, because actually, I’m a big advocate for a daily nap. But DW likes to be doing something… he’s not one to sit around. It’s one of the things I love about him, though. He works hard, but he also believes in playing hard. He’s got the balance just about perfected in my book.
We started the weekend off on Friday night at Blue Highway. Since we were so close to one of the company’s jobs, of course DW wanted to see it. (Also known as “riding the job.”) The road ran right in front of a park, so we decided to stop and check it out. It was seriously the best park ever. It was nice and shaded by all these big oak trees, and even had the bouncy astro-turf surface around it. AB loved that it had FIVE different slides to pick from. She went down all of them. We are definitely going to make another visit there!
Saturday we had a few errands to run, and then spent the rest of the day at the pool. I did some major working on my first sunburn of the year. I make my family crazy because I believe in starting every summer with a little burn, which usually ends in a BIGGER than I’d hoped for burn, which leads to me whining and DW wanting to choke me. At least I’m predictable.
Sunday morning we’d planned to take a day trip to Caldesi/Honeymoon Island with my parents, but they couldn’t go, so we went over to the condo instead. I forgot my camera, and my FIL didn’t have his either. It’s unheard of for NEITHER of us to have a camera, but it happened, so the only pics I have are from my phone. Sometimes it’s a good break when I forget my camera, though.
We had a fun day with Pappy & Granny & Aunt Kels before they headed back home. That night, we took a walk on the beach, which Little Miss LOVED… I think it was the feeling of having the beach all to herself. Whatever it was, she loved it!
Monday we headed home and spent a couple hours at the pool. Our girl is turning into quite the fish, and her new floatie is the best $15.00 we’ve spent so far this year. It holds her up so good, and she swims all around the pool BY HERSELF with it on! Of course someone stays close by her the whole time, but its so neat that she can “swim” without someone actually holding her.
That afternoon, we headed to my parents’ and for supper, we had a cook out at Granny’s. My Uncle & his farming partner have watermelons planted on some of Granny’s land and they were loading on Monday, so AB was beyond thrilled to see all the “melon buses” coming in and out.
AB & some of Uncle Jerry’s Trenton Watermelons! :)
The “melon buses” weren’t the only things AB was excited about seeing at Great-Granny’s…
Yep, that’s a gopher. And my girl’s riding it. BAREFOOT. Only in the country. :)
By the long weekend’s end, we’d consumed lots of grilled food, homemade ice cream, corn on the cob, and watermelon…my shoulders were red and my toes were tan. That’s a pretty close to perfect weekend if you ask me.
