Windy Saturday

Lindsey didn't want me to bother with a baby shower this time.  So last night I took her and Rissi to the mall to shop for the new baby instead.

Soft comfy blankies, diapers, plush newborn sleepers... all that neat baby stuff that's so much fun to buy.  
Then Rissi stayed the night.  It was supposed to be windy today, so we thought... Kite.

First a trip down town to get a new kite and some string.

Whoosh!  The wind was tossing leaves...  hats... papers 

 and even heavy garbage cans...

Below, the wind gust going in the door blew 
merchandise off of a shelf.

 We finally made our way back to the car and down to the park.  Gary suggested we play for a while on the playground while he got the kite ready.  

 So Rissi and I traipsed through swampy grass and fallen leaves to get to the  playground... then we went down 2 slides before running for cover.   

No kite flying.  Too windy.

Upon returning home, we found our phone line draped over my car that was parked in the driveway.  Yikes!

I'd cooked a big pot of vegetable soup before we left, so Rissi had some during a break from painting.  

And that was our day.

Dear Diary,
Hey.  I need a lap here.  You'd think with all these peeps around a dog could find a decent place to lay.  Geesh.  Gracie.
