I forgot to mention this in my last post (I don’t know how I could forget), but after Smitty was passed out cozily in bed… we may have snuck in and painted his toe nails pink. Passion fruit to be exact. We managed to get all the toes on one foot, and the big toe on his other foot. It was a pleasant surprise for him. He was disappointed to have to wear socks and tennis shoes instead of sandals today. Not because his nails were pink, but because it’s been rainy and windy and nasty all day long.
Jake, Sarah and Jeremy went into town to buy rain gear so they could spend some time on the boat. Smitty, Jordon, Travis and I played hearts while Nick played WOW, then we went into Perham so the boys could find a bar where they could play poker. Mission unsuccessful. The boys had blizzards at DQ. I declined a blizzard, but I did have a small birthday cake ice cream cone at the little candy and knick knack shop. I forgot the name, but it’s something in regards to a Spoon.
After we got back, events such as card playing, computing, reading and napping occurred. Randy and Paul had a hankering for rhubarb crisp and asked if I could lend my mad baking skillz. I found a recipe online and consulted with Sarah, who made rhubarb crisp a week ago. We had everything we needed in the cabin and Paul clipped some rhubarb that was growing at their cabin. It turned out pretty well. I sliced a small strip for us to sample and brought the pan next door. Since Denise, Palmer and Palmer’s mother showed up today I didn’t want to sample too much. In return, Denise gave me a fruity angel food cake to bring back to everyone. It sure looks delicious.
I think everyone is itching to get outside. Just a minute ago there was an argument of whether or not to play croquet before the rain starts again. The boys wanted to play shuttle cock (aka badminton) in their swimmers earlier, but it was just too windy for that.
The exciting conclusion is to come soon!!
