I promised y'all, in yesterday's 4th of July Rewind post, that I'd be back, today, to share pictures of our weekend; and I'm here, now and before I get too wrapped up in all the business that comes with Mondays, to deliver. BJ and I had our 11th anniversary on Friday. So, we made sure the gardens were extra watered, got our neighbors to look after our pup, packed up the car, and made the trek to my parent's house for a kid-free dinner on the town. They live in the small town, compared to Kansas City, that I grew up in, so it was a bit of a trick to find just the right dinner spot. I had my sights set on a favorite pizza spot from my college days, but when we pulled up in front of it, there was a big "FOR SALE" sign in the window. Sigh. So, we settled on Mexican food. Then, we hit the park, where it all really began for us.
Tropical Sno snow-cones and talking on this bench swing. Matter of fact, I even carried a can of WD40, under the front seat of my car, just in case it got extra squeaky.
Bath and Body Works to pick up one yummy lotion, before heading back to my parents' place to rest and get ready for a day of birthday fun, which started with a delicious, pancake breakfast, made by my Mom, and the rescuing of my son's chosen Bakerella's Red Velvet Cake.
Jones Aquatic Center for an afternoon of fun in the sun.
