When Gretchen got back, we changed clothes and headed off to the pool where a lot of splashing around occurred. Later, I took the trowel and dug a "river" in the really big sandbox there to carry water all the way to the edge from the pools in the middle. I eventually got a lot of help on this project from an assortment of kids with shovels. :)
After that, we headed home, changed again, and went to Perry's for dinner. I got my BBQ pizza fix, Gretchen got fish and chips, and Katie got a cheese-free kid-size pepperoni pizza. :) (Julie, on the other hand, ate everyone's food except her own. *sigh*)
We're home now watching the news during a pledge break on PBS. Julie is sound asleep; Katie is munching grapes from the earlier Sam's Club run.
Overall, a pretty good way to spend a day of a holiday weekend. :)
