Baked Not Fried
Summer is a wonderful thing.
It's early in the season but we've already settled into the weekend routine of going out and doing something in the morning and spending the balance of the day at the pool.
If you live on the East Coast, you know that Memorial Day - the unofficial summer kick off - sucked. It was about 50 degrees, and windy. Pools were freezing. My son swam but turned blue after about two minutes. Such is the life of Zero Percent Body Fat Boy. This weekend, though, this was more like it.
We spent the bulk of Saturday baking in the sun at a local carnival, riding rides, eating, watching a decent string of bands perform. It was hot and sweaty and absolutely insane but a great amount of fun the kids wait for all year. We cooled our heels (literally) at the neighborhood pool for three hours in the afternoon then went out for dinner. The result was a dehydrated, sunburned and exhausted family of four. Just how a summer Saturday is supposed to turn out.
Sunday was more chill, based on the weather. Errands, lunch out, dinner with our extended family. Pretty awesome. In between we managed to squeeze in a marathon of Game of Thrones and How I Met Your Mother. Sleep was in there somewhere (but not much of it).
All-in-all, a perfect summer weekend.Posted by Chris at June 3, 2013 8:30 AM
