Weekend Update - Birthday Boy

On Friday, we had a quiet evening at home. Husband and I caught up on some television.

On Saturday, Nephew turned 4 years old! We went to Sister's house for the big party. It was a lot of fun. We gave him a Cars/Lightning McQueen bathing suit - shirt and trunks - and a matching towel for the summer. We stayed later so Nephew and Little Miss could eat dinner and have a bath together. Nephew actually asked for me to give him his bath and read his story. He still loves Husband, but it's nice that he includes me more in the love.

My parents gave Nephew a bike for his birthday, and he rode it all around his neighborhood. Little Miss is a little slower on foot than he is on his bike, but she desperately wanted to keep up. She even braved walking on the grass to be with her cousin. So, Nephew got off his bike and led Little Miss by the hand until she caught up to where he was. Little Miss doesn't like to hold hands with anyone else but Nephew.

On Sunday,we went to the Taste of Arlington. I felt we got a lot of food. I ended up bringing a lot of food home actually. It was nice to have a taste from my favorite restaurants as well as try new ones. Highlights were from a new place that had shaved ice. They put a little condensed milk on the top so it was sweet and creamy. It would have been a perfect treat on a hot day except the day wasn't hot at all. I took a nap as soon as we got home as did Little Miss. Then, we played and relaxed the rest of the afternoon.

Good weekend. Next weekend is a much-deserved long weekend in Maryland! Plus, bookclub meets so I'll finally get to change the "Book I'm Reading" over on the right.
