I was all set to do a photos-only post about our Sunday, but then forgot to actually, you know, take any pictures.
Not to worry! I can still recreate our day using photos I found online and I think you'll still get the feeling for a Sunday afternoon in Jenworld.
My in-laws came to visit this weekend:
Pete's father and stepmother are really great people whom I enjoy hanging out with. Very interesting, very nice, and always fun to have around.
(No, they don't read this blog, so I'm not trying to suck up to them. They've known me almost 20 years, so I'm thinking their impressions are formed already.)
We had a lazy morning and then Pete made a large breakfast of hash browns and eggs:
Again, not a photo from my actual house, so just take out that steak. I think that eggs and hash browns alone is enough of a "heart attack special." Plus, Pete adds bacon and cheese to our hash browns. Now that I think about it, a steak would be healthier than all that bacon and and cheese...
Elegant ran a slight fever early in the day:
She actually felt fine and it was more my intuition than anything that led me to check her temperature. So she and Graceful played happily all day:
Pete and his parents went for a walk on the trail near our house:
Substitute my in-laws for the children and Pete for the black lab, and you get the idea.
I napped on the sofa:
The only differences were that I wasn't reading and we don't have a green sofa. Oh, and I don't routinely walk around the house nekkid.
We went to see friends who live in the country and were having a small party:
We ate a lot of great food and hung out with various friends and had a terrific time. These friends live on a farm, so our girls enjoyed running around, chasing chickens, petting horses, and all sorts of good clean fun. Well, not so clean, I made the girls take showers as soon as we got home and Pete and Graceful will be cleaning cow manure off her sneakers tomorrow.
We watched a movie in the Jenworld Theater:
And then the grandparents tucked Graceful and Elegant into bed and the girls went straight to sleep:
It was a really nice day. How was your Sunday?
