Scenes from The (Long) Weekend
We celebrated Memorial Day with a bit of an "Americana" weekend…there were two cook-outs (prominently featuring ubiquitous holiday treats like burgers and watermelon and homemade cherry ice cream), some inflatable pool fun and, wait for it… a visit to the amusement park.
We’ve been promising to take Audrey to the amusement park all year and figured hey, how about we do it on a Saturday, during a holiday weekend, on the hottest day of the year. Yep, we’re pretty smart, Bryan and I.
So we proceeded to drop Millie at the grandparent's house and descend into hell. I’ll spare you the details, as I’ve decided to go with the whole “if you can’t say anything nice…” position here (so strike that whole “hell” remark above if you will.) I will concede that spending the day with Bryan and Audrey was really fantastic. Such a different dynamic when you have just one kiddo in tow. We need to remember to do this more with the girlies.
Just not at the amusement park…
