A Great Weekend Is . . .

Sleeping with the bedroom windows open on Friday night so that you wake up to the birds singing on Saturday morning.

Going to a local parade and car show on Saturday morning and watching James point out all of the neat floats/horses/bands/hot rods and saying "Wow!"

Watching your beautiful, sleepy boy fall asleep after too much parade excitement and sun.

Having prosciutto and provolone sandwiches from La Puma bakery for lunch.

Taking an afternoon nap.

Grilling, drinking wine and sitting on the patio with friends.

Watching James run up and down mowing the lawn with the bubble mower.

Eating a way-too-big potion of strawberry shortcake with ripe berries, homemade shortcakes and homemade whipped cream.

Falling into bed before 9pm because you are happy and exhausted.

Sleeping in on Sunday morning.

Making the best pot of coffee you have had all week.

Playing trains with James and hearing him say "Uh-oh" and "Oh no!" when the train goes off the track.

Taking James for a four mile walk in the baby jogger and soaking up the sun and the blue sky.

Buying a real fish tank for James to fill with guppies because he is just so excited about fish right now.

Taking an afternoon nap.

Having hot dogs, grilled veggie salad, potato salad and homemade banana splits for dinner/dessert.

Reading as many bedtime stories as James wants before you put him to bed.

Watching a movie together (unless we fall asleep and go to bed before 9pm!)
