On Wednesday, the clouds cleared in the afternoon and gave us a chance to go to the pool and slides at General Squier Park with Nana, Papa, Mark, Margo, Gayle, Jesse, and the boys. Some people went down the nice, safe slides at the waterpark.
And some people went for riskier slides.
Although there was some intermittent sliding during the day, most people retreated to the relative safety of the pool, where Miles learned some valuable lessons about water fighting tactics.
After returning from the park, Laura, Gayle, Jesse, Mark and I went to Sherwood Brewing Company and Hamlin Pub for some drinks. When we returned to the house, we went down to the basement to give everyone upstairs a fighting chance of sleeping through Laura’s laughing. That’s where Mark and Laura discovered the wonder of… BEEFSICLES!!! Beef sticks that had been frozen in the basement refrigerator.
Laura and Mark had even more fun eating the beefsicles than these young children had eating traditional popsicles.
