what I want to remember from memorial day
There was a morning walk
the guys went golfing
and watched the cousins play.
Forget "second breakfast", he had "third breakfast"
including 4 of Grammie's pancakes,
It was like the hungry caterpillar
he road a train for the first time
and jumped a mile, then smiled when the whistle blew
and the bell clanged.
we could have explored the refurbished cars for hours,
next time we will.
(this part of the weekend deserves it's own post)
We drove to the nearby campground
just to check it out (again) and note what sites
would be fun to stay at.
There was snow everywhere
and the creek was raging under the bridge.
He requested to hear "someday" (One Day, Matisyahu)
and then fell asleep on the ride home.
2+ hours of knitting while
dad took a nap with the boy.
Not a lot of things can top
Beer drinking in the afternoon sun
naps in a chase lounge chair in the shade
card games before bed.
I got to hold my new niece
A wrestling match between all the (little) boys
and Daddy-O resulted in lots of giggles.
Bath time is getting crowded with all those long legs
and bubbles to the ceiling.
It was a wonderful three days off.
