A Weekend in November

We woke up Saturday morning and knew that we were sick. We weren't sick yet, but we were going to be very soon. And, if the winter illnesses which have felled those around us are an indicator, it may be awhile before we heal.

So, we made the most of a fine fall day. It was cool but sunny to start and ended almost warm. We started out at the local amusement park where we treated the boys to their favorite kiddie rides.

Waiting in line for the Log Ride.

Then we headed across the street to the zoo where we watch giraffes and flamingos and the boys drank sugar water out of pink bottles shaped like dinosaurs. We all had a great time.

Sunday was different. We stayed home. Well, the children stayed home. They played in the yard a bit. Watched Sleeping Beauty. I had to go out and stockpile provisions for the impending plague. But the weather could not have been nicer.

Sunday dinner was neither elaborate nor elegantly served (yes those are brussel sprouts on paper plates, but it was hot and on the table at half past five. The whole family gathered around our simple feast. I had to take this picture. They are all there, sitting up, at the table, using utensils. They have grown so fast, and even though they have many years to grow, I wanted to capture this second before it was gone.

May you all have a nice week with the little ones gathered around if you have them.
