We were in the mood to do something special and couple-y today, but I didn’t want to: 1) spend any money or 2) go anywhere. Hah. What can I say, it’s one of those days. So we decided to have a picnic in the backyard. And it was so, so nice.
Remember a few weeks back, when I talked about my penguin phase and how everyone gave me penguin gifts as a result? Yup. This blanket is circa penguin craze phase.
Even though we’ve lived in the house for about two and a half months, I am still not used to it. For so long, owning a home and having a backyard was ‘the dream.’ It was the goal that we had focused on since were 20 or so. I still feel like it isn’t really real. I actually had a nightmare last night that the bank knocked on our door and kicked us out!
It’s nice to do things like this – it makes homeownership seem more… well, more real. Our dream of a backyard finally came true.
Veggie burger, salad, fries.
Chips and hummus:
Soooo…. This might be a little mean. But it’s really funny.
We play a game with James because he is obsessed (ob-sessed) with squirrels. I call it, “Look! Look! A Squirrel!”
The Husband shakes a tree…
The leaves rattle…
I scream, “Look! Look! A squirrel!”…
And James freaks out.
He’s a really smart pup. He’ll figure it out eventually.
Have you seen Pixars animated movie Up? Your squirrel story made me think of this movie. If you haven’t watched it, check it out!
