Erev Shabbat Chol Hamoed was spent in style. We traveled over to our favorite beach in Ashdod with Phil and spent a few hours soaking up some rays. Phil and I braved the spring waters of the Mediterranean, but to be honest, it was quite cold. Back in The Sun House we threw together a simple but delicious meal for dinner. Then we got ourselves ready to light candles.
Buzz was thrilled to see his cousin and they played nicely - except when they disagreed about the best course of care for the baby doll that they both dote upon. We also ventured up to The Park at the Top of the Hill - and met up with the Lindzs. Our playdate got cut short when the weird weather decided that 'rain' seemed like an appropriate option for the middle of a boiling hot afternoon in mid-April.
Z and I opted to walk home after eating more than was necessary. Not to aid the digestion, but rather so we could be home in time to get Buzz to bed on time. The walk ended up serving both purposes - so it was all good. Then we collapsed into bed and I conked out for the night.
Back at home the kid was zonked. He actually took an early, short but refreshing nap and he woke up as we finished clearing the Pesach stuff out of the kitchen. Then we hopped into the car and went out to do some grocery shopping. All we really needed was some diapers and some vegetables.
We then started an episode of GG while Z gave Buzz a bath. We said goodnight to the kiddo and finished the episode as he fell asleep. Then Phil walked back home. I was feeling a little bit lonely and bored when I realized that I hadn't been on top of things here. So I rectified that situation.
Now it's time for pajamas, bed, and planning tomorrow's adventures!
