I picked up Nate (my eldest nephew) on Saturday from football practice.
Tina & I took 4 kids to the Sweet Corn Festival.
|Trekker (youngest nephew) had a corn dog (or a Lion Dog, since it was from the Lion's Club) and a lemon-aid.|
Saturday night we had a cookout at Mom & Dad's. Well, can it be called a "cookout" if we didn't actually cook anything outside? Mom crock-potted a couple of different meats, made cooler sweet corn*, and we had various other side dishes and chocolate covered cherry cake (Thank You Tina!).
*Apparently People Who Camp know that you can put your shucked corn into a cooler, pour boiling/hot water on it, close the cooler for about an hour or 90 minutes, and your corn will be cooked. Thank you, People Who Camp, for keeping this information to yourselves all these years!!! What the heck! Share the info sooner next time, would you? This was awesome!*
Emily & Adam came by bringing their adorable little girl Brianna with them. She's just too cute! She doesn't so much like being held by others, but she sure did play with us. By the end of the night she was teasing us! Pretending she would go to someone and then laughing when she turned away. So much personality!
|So. Much. Cute!|

It was really great to get to spend some time with family away from the regular chores waiting at home, like dishes, laundry, etc. I just wish I had felt better and could have gone to the festival on Sunday too!
