Darn near a perfect weekend in and around Northfield MN:
(1) checked many items of the project to-do list.
(2) made some great food on Saturday night... anything that includes avocados, garlic and lemon can't be wrong.
(3) Every second that JD was awake, we were together as a family of three. We capped it off by heading out to a local park this afternoon. We took in the fall, ate a bit, and played with the new camera. James enjoyed collecting acorns. We tried to explain to him that they are baby trees. He is just more and amazing every day.
The reason we love kids so much: they're the best of us. They're not ridden down by poor outlooks on life, or bad economic forecasts... they're not worried about competing with their peers, acting appropriately... they don't understand embarrassment. They're perfectly and purely honest. They ask the tough questions without hesitation. In some ways I feel like I could take quite a few hints from my son!
