John was out of town this past weekend, and so the girls and I were on our own. Of course it was a long weekend, so we needed to find ways to entertain ourselves. We laid low the first couple days, breaking into our secret stash of American food and enjoying every bite. Cailyn took it a bit too far, though when she dipped a precious Oreo cookie in…
Gross! Reminds me of my brothers, cantaloupe and mustard!
I’m still trying to decided what is most gross to me, the fact that she ate it or the fact that she thought it was good.
After that, I decided it was time for us to get out of the house. We walked down to the lake and on the way made a manditory stop at the bakery. You can’t walk by and not stop, even if you have been eating nothing but processed American junk all weekend.
It was such a beautiful day to be outside. People were even swimming in the Lake (it wasn’t THAT beautiful!) The girls just enjoyed being outside, playing at the park, watching the swans and scootering around the boardwalk.
On the way home we decided we needed to try the local gelato stand. We hadn’t had a chance to try it yet, and I knew it had to be good because everytime I walked by it was packed. All I can say is… DELICIOUS!
I know it sounds like we spent most of our weekend eating, but I just want to assure you that we didn’t. We found plenty of time to play video games too!
