Balance Achieved

We have had several consecutive weekends now that were the perfect blend of both recreation and rest. Sometimes it might just be a happy accident that we decide to nap instead of go out, or visit a museum instead of rent a movie, etc. but for the most part, we are really learning our limits of what it means to live with a child. It means we need to break up the fun into smaller, more bite-sized segments--but not give up on the fun altogether. This past weekend we decided to figure out how to grill. On Saturday at lunchtime, we quickly discovered starting a fire in a gusty wind is no simple matter. A half hour--and a roll of tin foil later, Jerry announced to me he'd done it. The coals were hot and ready to go. Our tin foil chicken turned out well enough we were confident about proceeding to host a barbeque with a group of friends on Monday evening. We grilled shish kababs, and they were adorable and yummy. Kind of like that Lo:
Forgive the camera man's finger, but we love this pic because it shows that Lo's finger pointing too. Over the past month or so he's been a pointer extraordinaire, showing us everything he sees and/or wants. Note his hooded jacket; it was very chilly for our Saturday grilling session, but the weather Monday turned out perfect. Autumn is right around the corner, but we've got a few warm days left I'm sure.
