So you can see why Otto was so excited for our trip to the beach yesterday.
sprinkler. We cleaned out the kiddie pool and, after an early afternoon nap, we sunscreened the moppets and headed out back for a really great afternoon.
Our yard pool party was followed by a summertime blanket picnic (also in the yard) of local organic sweet corn (hard to find!) and watermelon. We tried the new Tofurkey chicken/apple flavor sausages and they were a hit. And on the beverage front I am living on lemons lately. I've been putting jam jars of water with lemon in the freezer lately to get super cold and having glass after glass of icy lemon water. And in the evenings, it's all about Twilight summer ale with a wedge of lemon.
It ended up being an amazing day despite the morning setback. And can this mama just say that it is wonderful to see Otto loosening up around water. Just a year ago he would have never, never EVER, run through a sprinkler. This year he is a sprinkler maniac! Hopefully this means swim lessons this year will be more productive as well, since last year he just opted out of each lesson, ha.
