Yesterday started out on the cold and cloudy side, but we went to the beach yesterday, just to let the kids dig. Lucky that we did, too, because around 11:30 the sun broke through the clouds and we ended up with the most beautiful day we've had so far.
Dinner was just leftovers and pizza, but with a visit from Cooper's cousin Gilly and a final visit from Brian and Jack, it was pretty celebratory. Plus, Cooper drove almost back to Chestertown in the afternoon to pick up today's dinner: a 45 pound pig. His arrival back home was pretty exciting and the kids got a nice lesson in where their hot dogs come from. Seriously.
Photos of the pig will come tomorrow, after today's big roasting sesh, but in the meantime, here's a quick, inartful pic of Dixon that also showcases just how many dips we have on offer at any given time. Also, in the background, you can see the Colin Cowie glass drink cooler Mike ordered from HSN one night a month ago, along with five small boxes of cocktail mixes. Not very good cocktail mixes, but at least Mike gets an A for effort:
Today: beach and caja china pig roasting. Tomorrow: babysitter and crabs!
