Friday: the day where you shake your head to the side a little and bits and pieces of things that happened over the week fall out. This = Friday Fragments. Thanks Mrs. 4444's!
*2 records have been smashed this week. One is that the girls and I got in/out of Friendly's in less than 40 minutes. Friendly's is notorious for being the slowest restaurant on the planet. We took a gamble yesterday and it paid off! Yay Fribbles!
The second one is that both girls finished their summer reading yesterday a whole week before school starts!!! That means I don't have to turn into mean mom and duck tape them to their book for the last few days of "summer". Phew.
*This lady was at the beach the other day. It was smokin'hot out.
*Hurricane Bill was a bust last weekend and it is looking like Tropical Storm Danny will be a bust this weekend. Of course, now that I have made this prediction, Danny will be picking up speed and heading directly for Cape Cod as a Class 3 hurricane.
*This is a picture of B and her friend C. I didn't retouch or do anything to this picture. It looks like they are in the middle of the Bahamas or something. On Skaket Beach in Orleans, you can walk about a mile straight out at low tide. There are so many sandbars. This was me going out to tell them to get their butts in because the tide was coming in fast. They were fine on the sandbars, but in between, it gets rather deep. I said, "Didn't you notice that no one else is out here with you?" Their comeback, "We thought they all just wanted to go eat lunch." Oh boy.
*We went shoe/sneaker shopping yesterday. Let's just say that there is something to be said for the Mr. Hanes' shoe store on the corner when I was growing up. My mom dragged the 3 of us in there, he sat us in a big chair, measured our feet, gave us 2 options and sent us all home with new shoes and probably a lollipop.
Yesterday, I was sent home with no shoes/sneakers for either girl and a headache.
*No matter your political views, we happened to be driving back on Cape yesterday at the same time Sen. Kennedy was being driven off Cape. It was amazing to see all the people lining the highway with signs and flags. I pulled over (along with every other driver) to watch the procession and to give the girls a bit of history in the making. I did not have my camera, but took this with B's cell phone. I think it will be bigger if you click on it.
* Have a great weekend :)
