Home from the North
I love visiting up north, but my god, it feels like you’re driving to the north pole, it’s so fucking far. Cakes did really well in the car this time though. We’ve learned it’s all about the DVD player for long drives (our neighbour lent us theirs and it was magical). Cakes was pretty happy to chill out and watch Hi-5. We stopped at Weber on the way for fab cheeseburgers and fries. Cakes is so odd—she won’t eat burgers, hotdogs or fries and ketchup like a normal kid. She kept looking around for some brie or smoked salmon (that’s about all she ate all weekend—that and shreddies).
We had a super visit with my SIL and her hubbie (M & T) as well as crazymumma and her wonderful family (jen, she gave me a big hug from you). We made the most of a rainy Saturday by sleeping in, back-to-back movies for the kids, eating chips all day, and tons of cheese and wine. M & T cooked up a veritable feast for dinner--steaks, corn on the cob, portabella mushrooms with goat cheese, T’s famous caesar salad--and we even managed to top it all off with brownies (made by cm’s youngest) and ice cream. And of course, more cheese and wine. I’m afraid to get on the scale.
Did y’all have a good weekend? How’d you cope with the rain?
