Oh my GOSH we have been busy.
My mom used to say after she retired,
that she didn't know how she got everything done
when she worked.
I get what she was saying now.
Some days just go buzzing by.
Let's look at yesterday, shall we?
To start the day Al had band practice at some un-Godly hour.
Next we needed to escort our favorite three year old to
McGuffy Acres for a field trip at 9:30.
There, we learned about bees and pumpkins and jumped in the corn.
|We had lots of fun.|
We stopped by McDonalds to pick up a happy meal
for L before we took her home.
After dropping her off we stopped at Panera for some soup.
We had gotten pretty wet/cold/soggy at the field trip,
so we needed hot soup.
Afterwards we were just worn out,
so it was nap time.
I can not come close to telling you how wonderful it was
to get under the covers and pass out.
After our nap,
Al had to run out and get a few errands done
and I picked up the house while waiting
on the West family to arrive.
They are opening a restaurant in Downtown Kokomo
and I am loaning them a few things to add to the ambiance of the place.
We loaded and truck and they were on their way.
it was on to Al's birthday dinner.
I had three things that I needed to do last night,
but birthdays trump everything.
He and I went out to Red Lobster.
Al ate a lot of shrimp.
I ate those wonderful biscuits.
We ate too much, for sure.
I hadn't had time to bake a cake, so we had to buy one.
We picked up a chocolate cake and ice cream on the way home.
(Read was astounded that I DID NOT bake a cake)
Our evening ended with the two of us watching the presidential debates
while I cleaned photos.
No, I did not enjoy the debates.
I thought both men were rude to each other and their moderator.
What happened to people being polite?
That is all I have to say about politics.
I am going to tag some pictures of the parade
from last weekend onto the end of this.
A LOT of people.
The parade had 18 bands in it and lasted for over two hours.
|Pretty, pretty, pretty.|
|I am a sucker for horses.|
|You have to have bagpipes in a parade.|
|The parade queens|
|Ha ha, Al. Tractors. |
He always makes fun of the Russiaville parade and it's tractors.
|A tall patriotic gelding|
|Al working, working, working.|
|Close up of the fire wagon|
|I didn't get to see anyone in an ear of corn suit, but I did see a corn hat.|
It sure was fun.
Have a great Indiana fall day.
See you soon.
