On Saturday morning, I emptied my (rather large) purse and then re-packed it with sunscreen, bottled water, and an extra pair of clothes for both the boys. We drove to Richard’s mom’s house, where we met up with her, Mike, Becky (Richard’s sister) and the cousins, Ben and Emma. We all had breakfast before heading to the Renaissance Fair. During breakfast, Mason wiped his sticky-bun-laden fingers all over his nice, clean shirt. I was nervous about using his one extra outfit that early in the day, knowing if I did he’d need to change all over again. I was right. On the way to the fair, he took a drink from a bottle of water and sloshed that all over himself. I changed his outfit just before we got out of the car to go into the fair.
Oh my gosh, it was SO HOT THERE! After living in Maine for a decade, we aren’t accustomed to that heat and humidity. I was thrilled to be able to find turkey legs, however, and I “gobbled” one down, despite the heat.

This week’s Maxism:
I was explaining the Amish culture to Max last week as we were driving to a restaurant serving in Amish food. After explaining aspects of their simple lifestyle, including that they don’t drive cars or have electricity in their homes, he responded, “Are we going to have to eat with our hands?”
Hugs to all!
