yesterday was just great. we woke up ( well jamie and ryan woke up at 9) i woke up at 6:30 am because my niece slept over and she had school. and of course i had to make her breakfast and pack a lunch. i mean any good aunt would do that. when i asked her if a turkey sandwich was ok, she replied, "i'll take a lunch if it is really good". hum, really good i thought to myself, i make a mean turkey sandwich. and then i asked her, do other kids take lunches to school? well, she replied, not really. and so that was that. i am officially out of the loop, at least in north carolina. so i gave her five bucks, hugged her and sent her on her merry way.
in the car later the three of us watson's went to lunch at a lake front restaurant (sundries) with killer food, southern food, fried, and yummy the sweet potato fries were evil i tell you! i will have to post pictures later, but when i do you will see that a duck outside the restaurant was captured by my husband and my son sat and petted the duck. not sure how sanitary it was, but never the less a duck was loved, and my two year old was supremely happy!
we also went paddle boating that afternoon, and i almost convinced myself to move here (almost). it is so beautiful. and peaceful, and did i say beautiful? we are all feeling relaxed, loved, full.... all the feelings you should feel on vacation, and i love jamie in his new jeans, and stress free countenance. it is the life and i wish we could stay here longer.
i also love just laying in bed and cuddling with my husband as we listened to the rain fall this morning.
i love that jamie's entire family had a great time at the dinner i hosted on sunday. there was 22 people and we had plenty of food, and games. it was exactly what i had hoped for, and more....
