friends, i gotta tell ya, this weekend was swell. just about perfect actually. a great balance of work and play, productivity and fun, and just good times all around. if this was the start of summer then it appears we have a lot to look forward to. there were backyard barbecues, pancake breakfasts, a day at the farm, a family date for tacos, we unpacked all of our kitchen boxes finally (putting a small dent in the room full of yet to be unpacked stuff), there were grilled pizzas, and good beer, and playing in kiddie pools, and popsicles, and there was madmen. it just couldn't have been better.
