We are trying to enjoy ourselves this weekend, even if it's not the same being at home instead of camping in the hills.
The weather is beautiful, and we've enjoyed time outside. Yesterday we washed the Jeep and my car. Morgan and Kaia played in the dogs' pool in the morning, and played with the hose in the afternoon. They also helped wash my car before we traveled to the library. We ate hot dogs, corn on the cob, watermelon, and tomatoes for dinner.
Today Dana went with my dad for a motorcycle ride, and the kids and I went to church. Now we're relaxing, and laundry will be hanging out to dry as soon as I'm done posting. Tonight we'll eat burgers from the grill, fresh radishes (a gift from Kevin and Jenny's garden), potato salad, and s'mores. I also hope to get a rhubarb pie made. If not today, then tomorrow and we can enjoy it with our steaks tomorrow night.
Earlier today, I got smacked in the face with the idea I was old. In 1997 I was a nanny for a friend at church. The girl was a pre-teen, the boy was a few years younger. I had a great summer driving them back and forth to youth group activities. Today, the girl that I shared a room with, is getting married! The realization of how much time has passed, combined with the energy toll of gestating twins made me realize I'm old! Regardless, I wish her and her new husband the best, on this gorgeous weekend!
