48 hours can go by so fast. The weather has turned from the dark side back to good. This entire week is going to be beautiful and warm. I might have to suck it up and start getting the garden ready. It's one of the many items in a long, long list of things to do. I always forget that once the weather gets warm the yard suddenly needs lots and lots of attention (read: work). The highlight of our weekend was seeing Finding Nemo on Ice. Any Disney show is worth it, as the special effects are usually great. (Hayat: you would have loved it!) The fireworks that went off nearly scared the you-know-what out of Lily, but everything else was superb. We had warned the kids beforehand that there would be lots of toys and snacks for sale but we WOULD NOT be buying any. It's really over the top, if you ask me. Men and women roaming the aisles, hawking $20 Nemo cups of frozen lemonade and hats. Zinabu got the idea that if he smiled his 100-watt smile at them and gave a friendly wave someone might just give him a free toy. I think he was genuinely surprised when it didn't work. My brother the police officer stopped by that afternoon and let Z flash the top lights of the squad car. Does it get any better than that?
