Saturday we headed to my dad's. The plan was to take the boat out on Lake Red Rock. Mother Nature? She thought rain was needed, so we were stuck inside. My dad and Linda volunteered to take the kids to "Finding Dory," so Aaron and I got some peace and quiet. Aaron took a nap, I worked on a couple of stories for the paper and watched a "Fixer Upper," marathon. Excitement, I tell you.
I did read a little bit, enjoyed a hot cup of coffee and my first strawberry short cake of the season while the kiddos were at the movie.
Late afternoon the rain stopped and we were able to sit outside. For supper, we just grilled hot dogs and made s'mores. Also, please note the shirt my dad is wearing below. Back to state in '98. Haha. I had to give him a hard time about wearing such a new shirt!
What you can't hear when you look at this picture of Blake is the John Phillip Sousa CD being played on my dad's speaker system. That's right, Blake was directing his imaginary band while listening to "Stars and Stripes Forever." This kid LOVES bands.
To end the night we got into a very intense game of whiffle ball. It started with the kids and then slowly more and more adults joined in. It was so much fun! I kept thinking - this is my childhood! This is how you learn to play the game! It was competitive and fun and I am sad to say I wasn't on the winning team, but it was a good workout. ;)
It wasn't quite dark yet when we did sparklers, but it had been an eventful three days and this mama was tired.
