What a great day! We woke up late, had a leisurely breakfast, then headed out to Town Day. It was an absolutely beautiful fall day - bright, sunny, and cool with the bluest blue skies. We wandered through some of the booths, but once we ran into R's friends from school, we all ended up just hanging out together while the boys ran around, climbed on walls and rocks, found big sticks, and played with their balloons.
Later, we found more friends camped out listening to a Celtic fiddle band behind the library, and R and his friend Z set off to explore the fountain and reflection pool.
We had good food - pizza, chicken tikka masala for me (although R ate most of it), and Brazilian BBQ for A. We almost bought a pet hermit crab from one booth, we picked up raffle tickets for a Red Sox-Yankees game from our neighborhood elementary school's booth, and we managed to avoid the booth with sand art, which R enjoys doing but shakes up immediately after finishing it. And, as everything was shutting down (we missed the fried dough - *sniff*), R spotted an ice cream truck and snagged a Spiderman ice cream with gumball eyes. Then we sat in a shady spot while he ate his ice cream and encased himself in a layer of red sticky goo.
R and I had the night to ourselves, and we had fun reading stories, playing board games, and making a space ship out of a giant cardboard box. It was a nice, relaxing end to a super fun day.
