Remember how it was hot and humid on Saturday over Memorial Day weekend? That's the day we decided to squeeze all of our exciting activities into for the entire weekend.
As usual, we bought items at the book sale and the consignment shop over the library.
We admired the art and Cuyler went over to talk to the man who sold him a "Bruins bird" last year. It's a carved wooden goldfinch and last year the artist had a sign that read 'To Ensure a Stanley Cup victory'. Cuyler used his own $18 to buy one and he brought it to the family room to watch all of the games with us. And sure enough, when the Bruins actually WON THE STANLEY CUP (I'm not over it), Cuyler's Bruins bird was there, whooping it up with the rest of us. We thought it was sweet that he went over and told the man about it this year. He said he was going to use the story as part of his sales pitch...
We also made a quick stop by the silent auction area to check out the lampshades.
I had a vested interest--both Bubbe and I donated a lampshade. At last peek on Saturday, her lampshade was up to $75 and mine was at $40. Yay us!
Now, what was I going to blog about...oh yes, the beach.
So, we invited 4 people to come to the beach with us. Since there are 5 of us and Bobby Law's car only holds 8 people it was a good thing not everyone took us up on the offer.
The water was cold, but certain parties were not deterred.
After some time by the cooking fire, the shirt was dry. Enough.
We'll expect to see you next time, Bubbe & Uncle .
For dinner we had chicken and hotdogs.
Remember that time Reilly tried cooking her own hotdog and she used a plastic spoon as a grill tool? Yeeeeah, that didn't go so well. So she switched to a regular fork.
After s'mores the boys took to the sand to amuse themselves.
If you're thinking 'there's no way that could've ended well', you're wrong. Well, unless you consider the two of them chasing each other with shovels full of sand 'not well'. Then you'd be right.
