It was awesome.
On Saturday, husband secretly arranged babysitters for the kids and then surprised me with a shopping trip to the outlet mall. Then we went to our favorite (albeit not particularly child-friendly) sandwich place for lunch, to the mall for a bit more shopping, and then Barnes & Noble where we actually got to flip through whole books and magazines and sit next to something other than the train set. If you are a parent with small children, you will appreciate this.
Yesterday we dressed up and went to church in the morning and tried to take a mama-and-the-wiggly-babies photo afterward.
In the afternoon we watched a silly movie, played with kiddos, and ate delicious
The adult version included bacon, jalapeno cheese, avocado, sauteed onions, and a special sauce that I’m going to give the recipe for below because it is so good on everything: sandwiches, chips, salads, you name it. I think it will be our Official Summer Sauce this year.
Milla’s hanguber had mostly mustard, but that is evidently how she likes it. Bea got avocado and beef and declared them both to be delectable.
It was about as perfect a weekend as I can remember. Many thanks to all the people who made it possible.
