Time with The Baby

My time with The Baby has been wonderful.  Thursday we did some shopping.  Mostly for groceries. 

On Friday, we stayed home and putzed around the house.  She read a book and I did my usual housekeeping and gardening.  It was a wonderful day.

The Baby is a big fan of elephants.  So we decided to spend Saturday at the zoo in Washington, D.C.  There is not admission to the zoo, since it is a part of the Smithsonian.   Parking was $25.00!

I read this elephant plays the harmonica, but we did not see it!

The Baby and I at the end of the day!  Boy were we pooped!
We all had a wonderful time.

We were pretty tired Saturday night.  To wrap up our "zoo" day, we watched the movie, "We Just Bought a Zoo."  It was a good, family movie.  We laughed a little and cried a little.

For dinner tonight, I roasted a chicken, some beets and potatoes.  

The beets were a part of our CSA.  They were so tender and sweet.  So much better than anything purchased from the store.  I added some rosemary and thyme that I picked for our garden.

My Mother will arrive in town tomorrow afternoon to be a part of The Baby's birthday celebration.  The Baby's boyfriend will arrive on Friday of this week.  I am planning a day of winery tours for Satudary.  Since The Baby will be 21, she will be legally allowed to have a glass of wine!

Hope everyone had a good weekend!

Pin It Now!
