This Memorial Day was pretty laid back. We had Duncan's family birthday party yesterday and boy was in the pool for oh, about six or seven solid hours with minimal food breaks. So, we all stayed home today and just had a family day. It was also hot. Very, very hot. Duncan and I ran some errands in the late morning while the babies napped and Iain worked in the yard. We went to Office Depot to get printer ink, then to Krispy Kreme for a doughnut for Duncan and coffee for me, then to one of my all-time favorite stores...Central Market. Oh, the produce! The wine! The bakery! Such.Fabulousness. All under one roof. But, I stuck to my list and put back the bottle of "Mommy's Time Out" wine that was my impulse purchase...because I wanted to drink it and blog about it. We did get goodies for dinner tonight, though. Came home and whittled away the time with three tired kids on a hot day with no pool.
What else did we do? Oh, we planted pumpkins and corn! Duncan thought it was a good idea until he got outside and actually had to dig and work in the very hot sun. He freely admitted to being too hot, too tired, and too thirsty but upon threat of no garden at all, or of not being able to water it once planted he reluctantly helped finish the task. Then Iain fired up the grill/smoker and we put the sausages and baby backs on.
Finn had the hardest day of all...a fat lip AND a bloody nose...two separate falls. He is full throttle and does everything, including running and falling, with gusto. He was hot, tired, cranky and went to bed before the rest of us sat down to dinner where Claire at two small ears of corn and sausage with gusto.
It was a good day.
