so here’s what’s been happening in our little world lately…
derek and i went to the village tavern for a long overdue date night (we haven’t had one since before hazel arrived on the scene). the steak and baked potato were delicious. the fly in my caesar salad was not. (i’ll spare you that picture). and. they replaced my salad, but that was the only thing they offered. not a free drink. or dessert. or even to take off the two dollar upcharge for a caesar salad. i bet they thought i planted the fly. i was a little disappointed, but whatever. now i know. and i’ll go somewhere else on my next date night. in a year.
our second trip to the pool did not play out as nicely as our first. the water was a little cool. and hazel and anna were not ok with that. so there was a lot of crying and whining. but, after a wardrobe change and a bottle, hazel was pleasant and happy to hang in the shade.
derek’s parents took the older two kids on a train trip to raleigh and back. so, hazel and i had a nice peaceful evening and morning to ourselves. we met with some friends. shopped. and napped. and then. in the blink of an eye. the chaos rolled back in. we met the grandparents and kids at alex’s for some ice cream and kid exchange.
and. now you’re up to date in the life and times of the lidboms… see you soon.
