Derek had more conferences and Eric had more work. Kelli was working from home, so it was just me and the kids. We left the house at about 10:30 and went to a park near Lake Minnehaha. I took the scenic route, but we made it! When we got there, I spread out our picnic blanket and got out the food. Cade helped me while Abby played. We ate lunch and enjoyed the beautiful day. After lunch, the kids played on the equipment. Then we put our stuff in the van and got out the stroller for a walk by the lake. Abby wanted to swim in it, but we decided that wading might be better. I didn’t feel it, but she said it was cold. We made it back to Kelli’s at about 1:00. Kelli had some late meetings and Eric was still at work, so the kids and I picked Derek up from the conference (I took the scenic route again!) and found a place to park downtown. We walked along the old milling disctrict and out onto a foot bridge over the river. Then we went to the Old Spaghetti Factory for supper. I love it! We sat in the train and Cade had a booster seat because he couldn’t have a high chair in the train. It worked out fine. Abby had mac & cheese and applesauce. Cade had spaghetti and applesauce. He fed himself with his spoon. He really did a good job, but it was still VERY messy. All of the food was good and we all ended the meal with the yummy spumoni icecream. After supper we headed back to Kelli and Eric’s. It was almost 7 by the time we got there.
