Laid-back weekend

A trip to the ice cream parlor, in their pajamas, marked the end of a lovely, laid-back weekend. We kicked off the fun at an adults-only party with neighbors Friday night. Our new babysitter, the younger brother of our two previous main sitters, has been working out really well.

Saturday we did a little yard saling and scored two more boxes of Kugelbahnen before I met with new parents at Z's preschool. We had lunch outside at Wishbone and since the kids were a little wound up, we spent a lazy afternoon hanging around the house and the local playground (instead of hitting either Art on Harrison or the Forest Park Ribfest). Saturday night Z and I went to a friend's house for another backyard movie screening.

On Sunday morning we met my cousin and his partner for breakfast at the Medici in Hyde Park, and the afternoon another relaxing one--nothing more than hanging out with neighbors on the street and at the park.
