but you know what? it was an evening of family time - quiet, relaxing, and full o'lots of good grub. the hub fired up the barbecue - with the insanely warm and disgusting 85-degree weather that day, it was a pretty nice evening. i sent him out with this:
and about 15 minutes later he came back inside with this.
in the meantime, i threw together some fun pizza pinwheels for the bean.

after we were stuffed silly, i busted out my forever lazy. oh, yes.

alas, she was out long before the ball dropped.
