But we finally went and it was lovely!
|"Lovely" might be a bit of a stretch for some of these fish.|
|But this lovely girl was captivated by them.|
They had lots of taxidermied animals and fishing lures and a model of a hunting cabin.
And stuffed birds everywhere. And varmints, but I forgot to photograph them.
|She loved it!|
Then we ate gyros and went home for a nap. And after that nap?
More fish and birds!
It's true. This was a magical Day O' Fish and Birds. Someone's grandparents were in town and after some visiting and ice cream-eating, we ambled through a pet store because supposedly my parents needed cat food. I think we were just there because it was nearby and Evelyn has a deep and abiding love for fish and birds and my parents like taking her to the pet store to see those fish and birds.
|She's loving this. Really.|
Then we went to Target and then Barnes & Noble, and then we surprised Cody with Firefly on DVD.
Then Cody and I lost truly amazing amounts of our time to watching Firefly on DVD. We also finished up the week with a trip to the farmers market and the library, making more grape jelly, doing laundry, checking around a little on our community garden plot, buying a new bed for ourselves, and reading and singing and dancing and eating good dinners and playing and hugging and sleeping late.
And that was how I spent my summer vacation. My lovely, lovely vacation.
