For instance, on Sunday morning Phil and I met up with Kate-the-Enabler's husband Chris (aka Lemondrop) and biked to an overpass not far from our house with the kids. We haven't been able to drive on it for almost a year, but I went over it on my bike on Saturday, and they're giving it a complete make-over (I'm sure the guys wouldn't use that term, but it's my blog after all!). Anyway, we thought the kids would get a kick out of walking around, seeing all the machinery and looking at the cars speed by below us on the freeway.
Of course, I forgot to take my camera with me. Bal blogger, BAD BLOGGER!
While Maxime had his nap that afternoon, Émilie and I worked out in the garden. We planted a tomato plant and some basil, as well as some cucumber and lettuce seeds. Phil had sown some a few weeks ago, but I think it must have been too cold for them because the seeds never sprouted. I've still got about a third of my (admittedly small) patch where nothing is planted as yet. I tried carrots last year, with no luck. I'd plant a zucchini again, but as Phil and I would be the only ones eating them, I'm sort of nonplussed by the idea. Green beans? Broccoli? Anyone? I really liked Robyn's idea of growing her own pumpkin last year, but I'm not sure I have the space. We'll see.
Once Maxime was up, as it was still quite lovely out, and windy to boot, we packed up a goûter picnic and headed out to a local park so Phil could fly a kite. The Enabler clan joined us about 30 minutes later, which was nice. As I said, good times, good people! It was a lovely afternoon.
Happy Knitting Everyone!
