Ahhh, Friday!

On Friday nights we are all just ready to unwind
and have a little change of pace.

I'm ready to let someone else do the cooking.
Lee is especially glad if it's "home" cooking.

The kids are always ready..
but they may or may not bring a book along.

They still might play with the things on the table.
It's not as much of a problem as it was when they were two.

These are the weeks I'm especially glad to find a place that's nice to linger...

...because baseball and softball are just around the corner.
We'll love being outside, but no one else in my family
will be keeping me company in the bleachers.

Our Fridays have been a tradition forever.
That guy behind Lee is a little jealous.

He should be.

Bethany says that Ben should have a new TV show:
"Boy vs. Food"

She is right.

Ben says he doesn't like it when there is pointless music on the radio. 
He says he likes the "Star Spangled Banner".
"Now THERE's a song with a point!" he says.
I asked him what the point of it is.
"Hey!  Is that flag still up there??  It's dark, so I can't see."

See what I mean?  Friday.  The perfect night to find out what's on everybody's mind.

Hm, that burger looks so good!
What a great tradition you have. You should try to keep it as long as possible. It´s the best kind of memory for your kids.
Loved that poem Ben wrote the other day too! Hilarious. :)
