the weekend

My parents came to Iowa last weekend.

It was relaxing!
It was fun!
It was not full of early nights to bed.

There's something about family that takes all the pressure off. No need to impress, no need to have it all together, just time to be real. Have real conversation, be challenged in real ways, eat breakfast in your underwear.

Just to name a few.

We all slept in late on Saturday morning and it.felt.good. I'm thinking it had something to do with the late chats the night before, and the cool breeze coming through the open windows that made all of us wanting to stay under the sheets a little longer. Then Mr. B made breakfast!

I love it when he makes breakfast.
Then we went for a hike with our dogs at the park nearby!

That's what you do when you don't have kids for your parents to play with. You treat your dogs like children.

"Copper, don't eat that!"
"Copper, do you want a spankin'?"
"Copper, do you have to go potty?"

Then we got fountain sodas at a little 50's station in town, had a 3 hour lunch on the patio, made ice cream sandwiches, played pitch with a few friends until 1:30 a.m., woke up for church Sunday morning, went out to eat, and played marbles that afternoon after a 2 hour nap.

I'm still tired.

What day is it?
