What more could you ask for? About 10 min after our out of town friends got here we were doing this:
Some laziness was required what with the mojitos and wine from the night before. And nothing is more lazy than chilling with your feet in a wading pool. Of course eventually I had to go inside to make this:
|4 bottles of peach Riesling Sangria to bring to a BBQ. That's just how I roll.|
|Yes. We drank it out of Fairview Hospital Birthing Center Sippy Cups. Insulated and good for the environment. Flawless.|
The next day there is quite the gap in photos. We went to Melt. Finally. Our friends have been trying to go there every time they come to Cleveland for years now with no luck. We even scored an outside table with no wait!
|The Dude Abides|
The next morning our out of town friends said goodbye and we headed off to another BBQ:
|Matt getting schooled in Bocce by my grandpa. You don't beat someone at their own game.|
My daughter described the fireworks as a cross between the MOON and SPARKLERS. In other words she liked them.
Even the little dude seemed to enjoy the bright colors. Glad we ignored bedtime (again. omfg) to catch them. Although I've been paying this week. Both kids are tired, crabby, off schedule, and a mess in general.
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY, EVERYONE!
