The day started off with trey calling for us some time before 7. as i lay there wishing he'd fall back to sleep i heard the pitter patter of feet upstairs. kate had run in to check on him. not only did she check on him. she took of his pull-up, got him dressed and came downstairs and got him a cup of milk before returning upstairs to turn on the toons. it was beautiful. like a dream come true. and from there the day just kept getting better.
after some breakfast peter and david took off for a ride and carolyn and i took the kids to the farmers market. we enjoyed a gorgeous morning, some tasty blackberries and a savory garden pesto crape. after filling our baskets and our bellies we set off to meet the men over at bent creek and planned on a taking a short hike. with a cool breeze at our backs we hiked about a mile in and made our way to a beautiful sand beach where the kids jumped in and cooled off.
following our adventures at bent creeks bid the bigley's farewell and promised to see more of each other.
saturday evening we had originally planned to camp out but with an unpredictable weather forecast and the impending garage sale heather and i decided we'd have a "camping" themed dinner instead. don grilled up some delicious burgers and we enjoyed cold watermelon and some savory summer salads followed by smore's roasted over a open fire pit.
probably one of the best moments of this past weekend was toward the end of night saturday when i found myself laying on an inflatable air mattress in the middle of the gast's back yard with heather and 5 little munchkins crawling all over us. and it only got better as the kids held lanterns while pete told the story of the tickle ghost. what a riot we had.
once again we find ourselves enjoying the simple pleasures in life. good times with family and friends.
life is good!
