We went to the Greek Food Festival, which I always enjoy. It is my annual affirmation that people with kids are desperate for things to do, because the number of people who show up for a gyros and a flea market is truly astounding. They get me every year. This year was another metric of Declan's big boy self being able to attack everything now- including the giant slide and big kid bouncy house.
He also got his very first face painting- something he wouldn't have sat for last year for love or money.
Note return of the freckles! I heart summertime!
That night after Declan went to bed, Shane and I ended our three year puzzle battle hiatus. As many of you will remember when I was pregnant with Declan, Shane and I used to buy 2 copies of the same puzzle and race to see who could put it together the quickest. I never won! Never! Not even close. But last night was my night, as we dusted off two copies of a never before completed spherical globe puzzle, and battled for world supremacy. And I won.
Look at my completed globe against the backdrop of all the unassembled pieces on my worthy opponent's side of the table. A victory four years in the making!
