Today I'm thankful for time well spent.
Dave had a one hour computer class to take today. We all went with him, so I could take the kids to the park, while he was in class.
I really like all the architecture in town, and I had a good opportunity (there weren't any cars behind me) to take a picture of the North Ward School.
Then it was off to the park. We spotted Mr. Peacock, right as we entered; and he even posed for us!
Then it was off to the slides!
Eli is pretty adept at climbing, so I just had Bayleigh follow him up each time, to make sure he didn't fall.
Then we walked around and said hello to all the ducks, geese and swans . . .
rested on the rocks . . .
and explored the banks of the pond.
When Dave's class was over, we ran a few of his errands, and then stopped by our favorite restaurant in town (El Rodeo) to eat.
Eli even likes their salsa.
After we ate, a few more errands and grocery shopping were completed; then on the way back home, we stopped to renew our concealed carry permits, and I pre-paid for tomorrow's Relay for Life 5k run. When we got home, Dave took a nap while I cleaned up the kitchen and started baking and cooking for tomorrow's 4-H community dinner.
After Dave woke up, he went to work outside again . . . smoothing more dirt and putting the kids to work. (Not that they minded playing in the dirt.)
I cooked/baked until 9:00 p.m. and then we all
went outside to enjoy roasting hot dogs, and eating S'mores.
I almost got this one in under the wire, but I missed it by a couple of minutes! I'm off to bed, so I will be rested up for tomorrow's 5k at 9:00 a.m. Wish me luck!
