Picnic in the park
We did absolutely nothing this weekend except stay up late, sleep late, and bask in the laziness of our loafing.
On Saturday I got a signed contract in the mail for my third children's book, BEEP, BEEP, GO TO SLEEP, which put me in a good mood for the rest of the weekend. We discussed whether we should use the advance to take a trip to Atlantis or put it into our DeLorean fund. We decided to make our mortgage payment.
Yesterday we ate bagels, did laundry, watched TV, and griped about how lazy we are. At 6pm we picked up a pizza and joined friends for a picnic by the Turtle Pond in Central Park.
All the kids in the photo above went to elementary school together. Zoe, the littlest one in the middle, now lives in Nepal but is visiting for a month and has remained part of the NYC gang via Minecraft and Skype.
It's nice to take off your shoes, sit in the summer grass, and see your children happy.
