We awoke with no plans, other than possibly not getting out of bed at all. Somehow I gained two extra children in the night (not counting Ivy.)
Some had morning baths while I put away laundry. We all ate something different for breakfast and I headed out to the farmer's market with the baby. We picked colored tomatoes and peppers for salsa, and a little box of kiwis. We bought fresh pita bread and hummus. And said hello to a friend. Or two.
Daddy had done all the dishes and was cutting up a watermelon just as we got home. We were invited to an impromptu pizza party with cousins. So we packed the melon and piled in the car. Afterward we called up my grandparents and stopped by for a visit. The boys caught an inch worm in the backyard. (He has now inched out of his jar and is possibly somewhere in my kitchen.)
On the way home we played our own made-up game of Hoop! - we'd try to be the first to spot a basketball hoop. There are a lot of basketball hoops in Northwest Indiana.
At dinner (leftovers from the grill last night) and brownies baking in the oven, Noah smiled and wished out loud I don't want this day to ever end. I don't want this day to ever end.
I have no pictures from today, but I'll see it in their eyes forever.
