Upside Down?

Today was a fun day.  Boo and I drove out to York for the Piglet's 9th birthday party.  She's the daughter of my awesome and wonderful friend Lissa from college.  I miss Lissa so very much.  It stinks living almost 100 miles apart.  But, at least we've found each other again (thanks Facebook!) and can actually get together in person now and again.

Anyhow, we had a great little gathering of a few friends and their kids at a very beautiful state park.  The York library has this awesome summer program with the local parks where you have to follow directions and find a rubbing.  Anyhow, the Piglet and one of the other girls there are doing this project.  It was a great little adventure.  We then wrapped up the party with some cupcakes and some good playground time.  I'm pretty sure everyone had a great time.

I know Gak enjoyed his down day.  Since he was working open to close last week and will be again this week, he needed it.

Anyhow, today's prompt was "upside down" and this is as close as I got today.  After the official party, Boo and I went over to Lissa's to hang out and play for a while.  The Piglet really wanted us to stay over, but unfortunately, with a two hour drive that just wasn't going to happen.  We'll hopefully be able to have a sleepover weekend either here or there soon.

Yesterday's prompt was 9:00.  Well, like most Saturdays, Boo and I were doing laundry at 9:00 in the morning.  I'm pretty happy with this shot.

When I went to get change from the change machine, this is how I found the lids available for holding quarters.  I didn't have to move them at all.  I couldn't resist taking this picture.  It was a tossup between this one and the action shot above for my photo of the day.

Boo and I also went to Hen and Hog for lunch, since it was their first birthday.  They were having a bit of a party.  I ate way too much.  Boo loved his cornbread as always.  I was nice and picked up a to go order for Gak.  After Gak came home from work and ate his treat, we went for a walk as a family.  We ended up walking to the ice cream stand and then to a tattoo place a block or so further.  Then we went to the park for a bit and walked home.  I think we walked about 2 miles in total in about an hour.  It was a nice way to spend the afternoon.

So, that just about sums up our weekend.  Hopefully the week will go smoothly.  I've got a killer project that's got to be done this week, but I'm just not sure I'll make it.  I mean, this is one of those projects that never seems to end.  As soon as I think I've got everything set up right, someone will find something that's not right, or should be different or something they didn't tell me about.  It's so frustrating and annoying.  It doesn't help that we're dealing with a consultant instead of just the end customer, and it sometimes seems like the consultant gets paid by the word.  Ugh.  Oh well.  I'll give it my best and hopefully that'll be enough.

Peace to all and may your weekends be fun and your weeks not look too horrible.
