The best thing about a major holiday falling on a Monday is, of course, that coveted three day weekend. Don’t you love waking up on Sunday and realizing that you not only have that day off but a WHOLE OTHER day off, too? We are coming to completely relish our weekends and all the napping that Xion let’s us do. He’s a Flint for sure as he loves his naps. *pats Xion on the head*
Woz’s little brother, Ryan, came through town for the day and got to meet his nephew and brother-in-law for the first time. Actually, it was the first time he’d gotten to see Woz in about 14 years, too, so it was a fun little reunion. We had some yummy breakfast at Satellite Coffee and then did a lot of catching up. We went through old pictures that Ryan had never seen, drank beer before noon (it was 11:40 and was after noon in Minnesota where Ryan is from so we thought that was acceptable 😉 ), and went to lunch at El Pinto so Ryan could try something soaked in red chile. We snapped some new photos, too, since the last ones we have of Ryan are when he was a lanky high school freshman with hair and big glasses. He’s changed a bit. LOL
Sadly, Ryan didn’t get to stay too long as he had to get a giant truck of onions back to Minnesota. Russ was pleased to see onions leaving the state instead of tainting his food here in New Mexico. Hopefully next time we’ll get to visit longer!
We didn’t really participate in any official 4th of July festivities. We really didn’t want to battle any crowds in the crazy summer heat and Xion’s schedule has been a little unpredictable these days. We decided to take it easy instead. We spent the majority of the day in jammies!
Woz even agreed to let us post this picture of her crazy morning hair because Xion’s face is a hoot in it.
Later that evening when things finally cooled down a wee bit, we decided to pour some lemonade and have a little picnic in our backyard.
The kitties love the outdoor lounging, too.
Xion really doesn’t like to stay in one place these days. He’s always rolling, rolling, and rolling.
Active indeed! This little guy is going to be crawling (uh, oh!) in no time!
Maybe one day we’ll be the super active family who hikes and bikes. For now we are liking the snacks and naps. 😀
