The last day of documentation. We have a busy day ahead and Madeline starts school tomorrow. The kids watch a little Amazing World of Gumball in the morning. I get a kick out of how much they cuddle up when they watch.
Vegas is still soundly sleeping. I don't disturb her yet, but Chloe needs to go out right away in the morning.
Dominick takes care of the Guineas for Madeline. He is always going out of his way to do favors for Madeline - even when she doesn't ask. I love how kind he is to her.
The Guineas are so cute when you open the door to their cage to feed them. They are little gluttens and can't wait.
We make a quick trip to the Minneapolis Farmer's Market. The kids have really enjoyed going this year and I wish we made it there more. This time of year it is especially wonderful - I love all the colorful vegetables and flowers on display. It's a happy place.
We head home and get ready to head to Grandpa Roger's for lunch. We make some breakfast. I am still loving Avocado on toast with poached egg especially if I have a lovely green avocado to spread and cherry tomatoes and basil from the garden.
Dominick has an amazing breakfast of yogurt with blueberries from the Farmer's Market, eggs and grapes.
The kids have made a fort in the living room. We let them leave it up.
The drive to Grandpas is about 45 minutes. The kids keep themselves occupied in the car with activities mostly left over from our South Dakota trip.
Ryan showed Dominick Grandpa's bow. He was enthralled.
Lunch included good old, fashioned barbecue fair - burgers, chicken, potato salad and cucumber salad with corn on the cob. Corn was fabulous - Dominick even managed to eat it with a loose front tooth. Dessert was cheesecake. Everyone ate more than their fill.
Dominick got to open some birthday presents from Todd and Diane and Grandpa Roger. He was thrilled to receive a new baseball glove and Legos.
D was worn out on the drive home.
We did our best to avoid the Sunday cabin traffic by taking highways instead of the interstate. It was a lovely day for a drive.
At home, they were anxious to go in the fort and work on Dominick's new Legos.
I had an iced coffee. This has been one of my favorite things to drink this summer.
Dinner was very low key since we had all eaten a lot at Grandma and cooking seemed silly. Madeline asked for deviled eggs - a favorite for she and I both. While boiled the eggs, she took a shower.
She has recently mastered the towel around the head thing.
Deviled eggs and a peanut butter sandwich. She helped me with the paprika.
