We had a glorious day. I'm trying out some new adjectives, do you approve? It was marvelous, stupendous in fact. And delicious. Dan smoked some ribs that were finger lickin' good and we got to share them with our friends Vergil and Kelsey. Their adorable baby girl Olive didn't get to taste the ribs, but I saw her eying them. They were superb. Outstanding. Top notch.
We bought a few fireworks, but would have had to take out a second mortgage to buy anything decent. But the boys didn't know what they were missing, and had a fabulous time stomping on pop-its on our back patio. On a side note, whenever I say the word "fabulous" I always picture myself owning a summer home in the Hamptons and kissing all my friends on each cheek when they come over for a cocktail party. Fabulous.
Hmm, what else is mildly interesting about our lives right now? We get to go to the Oregon coast with Dan's family next weekend. We're planning on taking the boys to Seaside on our way there and riding in the bumper cars and teaching them to play arcade games. Ah, the memories! I'm pretty sure Jake will want to ride the bumper cars approximately 82 times, so hopefully the ticket prices are the same as they were in 1990 when I was last there.
I'll be sure to bring my camera so you'll get the full experience of the Stump Family Vacation. I'll be inviting each of you over to watch the un-edited slide show when we return, so clear your calendars.
Keep enjoying this magnificent, splendid summer, alright? Fabulous.
