Shake It Off

How was your holiday weekend?

Were you as lucky as we were and able to turn it into a weeks vacation?

kite flying and picnicking,

Yup, we picnicked with our Foosball table- cut the grilling operation out of the picture- everybody knows what that looks like!

Are you still in the habit of lazy days, afternoon drinks and delicious dinners?Beautiful evening

If so, take a deep breath, savor the memory of reading in the sun and shake it off.Storm shaking

Because, if you are like me, you are home alone with kids used to constant company and entertainment and there’s nobody else around to help with dinner.

The vacations over – Trip shaking -just shake it off!

Concert in the Park

Six thirty on a Friday night found us at our local park just as The Dang-Its started playing.Concert in the park

We sat in the sun, under the first blue sky in days, and pulled out our picnic supper.  The next few hours were spent just as lazy summer evenings should be; lounging on the grass with friends, cold drinks in hand watching the kids run circles around us.DSCN8817-(2sm)

Long past bedtime the band packed up and we drove our sleepy girls home under the last pink of the sunset.

Ahh , summer nights!
