Hearts Grow Fonder
With Pops off attending techie lectures in sunnier regions, the rest of us rascals are left to fend for ourselves. Since we're prone to missing him, our distraction of choice is spontaneous fun. An evening bike ride (thanks, daylight savings time!), staring/giggling contests, and creative meal planning. Needing only a brief consultation amongst each other, the children perfected last night's dinner menu. We had turkey dogs on store-bought buns, baked beans with molasses, carrot sticks, and clementine oranges. It was a very orange and brown meal, but they were quite pleased.
For dessert, we cranked up the ice-cream maker. The girls helped me make Peter's all time favorite: mint chocolate chip. It must have been good, as the little epicureans became very focused and quiet upon consumption. Hurry home, Pops. We saved some for you.
