When we got home from shopping Jim had prepared a delicious dinner (two hour rule). We had hand cut steaks, grilled corn, salad, asparagus and a broccoli with Italian sausage dish that was a huge hit.
After dinner Robert finally went to sleep about 8ish… once again he had to be in the middle of all the action. Once he was in bed I joined the others outside. Anna and Ella were playing with Harley and she was in hog heaven. By the end of the night she was absolutely exhausted.
Aaron built us a fire in the fire ring and we watched the kiddos play and talked. At 9pm we had fresh baked cookies (since it had been two hours since dinner). About 10:30 we all piled in to bed absolutely exhausted. Actually Harley curled up in a chair outside about 9:30pm. She looked at me as if to say “carry me inside”. Those kiddos wore her out.
