Friday was as crazy as normal - park from 12:30 to 4, pool from 4 to 6. Except that once again it was thundering so we played at the playground at the park with some friends. There is a fountain in the shape of a dolphin there that the kids enjoy playing in when they can't play in the pool. We were so exhausted that the kids fell asleep at 6:30 and I followed at 8:30. We slept until 7:45 this morning.
We went to the Westlake Farmers Market at 11. Got a small Kettle Corn, one lemonade, a large jar of Garlic Dill Pickles, a pound an a half of organic okra, a balloon giraffe on a leash, 3 small eggplant, and a pound of figs. Oh and we caught 2 shows of the Circus Chicken Dog. We were going to hook up with some friends at the pool but us going just didn't work out (something didn't happen that needed to happen before we could go to the pool). For the same reason we couldn't go play in the pool at a friend's house but we had a grand time running through the sprinkler in our own backyard. We washed the dog in the process, she was not happy about that. We fixed some dinner at home and took it over to the condo to eat.
Got home at 8:15 and, since it was cloudy most of the day and a bit cooler than usual, the fireflies were out. Giselle had been bugging me lately to catch some for her again so I grabbed her bug catcher cage and went to work. I only managed to catch one while Giselle sat inside on the sofa and Paul crawled around in the grass in the front yard. Then Joe came out and helped. 45 min later we had 2 fireflies and Giselle then decides that she doesn't like fireflies and doesn't want them to light up in the bedroom. Arrrgh!!
The kids went right to sleep and I'm doing this while Joe surfs for sci-fi (Stargate SG1 and Aliens and Armageddon) and trash (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and VH1 Total Access: :LaToya Jackson (she's 48 BTW)).
I've had enough, I'm going to eat some and go to bed.
