Another wonderful weekend here in the Garden State. The weather was a balmy 70 something on Saturday, great for yardwork and cooler on Sunday, perfect for walking around at the town streetfair.
We started by fixing our fence. With a 120 pound pup who likes to jump up to see over it and 3 kids next door who hang on it like monkeys, it had started to lean. We picked up some Quick-krete, busted out the shovels and started to dig around the posts. Of course, Olivia has her own tools and helped with the shoveling.
We mowed the lawn and weeded. Then it was time to break out the edger I bought last summer but never used. What a freakin' amazing tool! I LOVE my Edgehog!. I am a freak about having a manicured lawn, so I went to town. A first it gave me a fight, but once I was able to harness the power, we were fast friends and my edges were clean and crisp. We also fixed the little fence around the beds along the walk to the patio - it had fallen over last summer and we ignored it each of the thousand times we walked by it for a year. Whatever - we were growing babies, so who cared.
We settled on the patio and grilled up some wings and corn on the cob (again). Our beverage of choice - the lovely Margarita.
On Sunday it was off to the Cranford Streetfair. Of course, I forgot to bring my camera, so we had to wait to get home to take pictures of the kids. I missed getting a shot of Olivia on her 1st pony ride (what a loser I am). Guess I'll have to sit her on the dog's back and take a picture. While the twins slept, Olivia had a blast feeding the animals, riding the pony and getting her face painted. By the time we got home, she was pooped and went right for a nap - no arguments. Well, 1st I made her sit outside to take a picture of her butterfly face. Good thing, the nap took it's toll on the paint. You must ignore my hair. I am growing it out and it's in a "stage", a pretty frightening one.
Life is good when you're living the American dream.
