Glorious day! I had my first official swim in the pool and it was…lovely. So lovely. Two diapers had their first swims too, on the bottoms of babies Cooper and Noah. The ‘rents – Stacey, Bowen, and Rishia – all had their official first swims too! No diapers on them though… Cooper loved the water, so did Noah, it was baby heaven out there. A and two girlfriends floated and chatted and giggled for a few hours. Then a newly shorn Nathan came home and jumped in too. Eventually the girls left, and then Stace, and Bowen, and Rishia and Noah, and in the end it was John, Nathan, and me eating grilled steaks, grilled bread, sauteed mushrooms and onions, and Byerly’s potato salad, on the deck, ahhh. Nothing fancy, just good summer food. We had a big salad for lunch, with chicken, avocado, corn, onions, tomatoes, cheddar, and crushed tortilla chips, tossed with a citrus vinaigrette. Delish, definitely hit the spot, and powered us through our afternoon of swimming. All in all, a moderate epicurean’s perfect day. I am wiped, heading for bed, and ready to start it all over again tomorrow…
