Seriously, the chick that writes this blog makes me laugh out loud when I read her posts (really - Jay and Hank look at me like I'm a kook). She is sooooo funny. I have a tummy ache from laughing so loud at her Adventures in Nature post which you can see directly here:
Trust me on this one.

Saturday, I had Thea. We got new sneakers at StrideRite and went to Jami's for a playdate with Drew and Grant.
Sunday was the bestest day of all! Jay and I hit the road early and went down camp. It was beautiful - almost 90 degrees. We sat by the pond and read for a while, saw Tim, Megan, John, Lorraine, Kathy and Scott - YEA! Hank got to play with his new friend Benny and also with Auggie. And go swimming!
We then drove to the Plymouth waterfront and went for a walk. We stopped and got a yummy pizza and salad which we took to a park and had an impromptu picnic. Hank my crusts so he was super happy. It was so sunny and warm. I did get a bit of a sunburn, but it will fade to a tan by tomorrow.
We got home and decided to make homemade ice cream. Jay bought the ingredients while I pureed some fresh strawberries. We set up our ice cream maker and ended the day with a yummy treat.

Last night Jay, Hank and I took a hike to a vernal pool we've been keeping our eyes on. We brought a net and bucket and did some muck scooping. We found all sorts of creepy crawlies and even a baby frog (aka tadpole), but no salamanders or fairy shrimp. We're going to go back in a few weeks and see what we can find. I love that we make it a priority to spend a lot of time outdoors. I bet Jay and I spend more time outdoors than 75% of the people in Massachusetts. I love it, especially now that spring has sprung! It reached 70 degrees yesterday!
As we were walking on the trail, I found some hair from a white-tail deer.Of course Hank had to sniff, sniff, sniff it!

I was in a deep, deep sleep and woke up to about six nurses huddled around me! And I was on the floor! And there were wet cloths all over my face! And there was a sheet on me!
I had no clue where I was or what happened - it was so scary! I quickly regained my senses and asked how long I had been out. The nurse said less than a minute. Then I asked if I fell, and she said that I slumped at the table, but they put me on the floor.
Then, THEN! I felt a little weird 'down there' and realized that I PEED MY PANTS!!!!! That's right folks, I peed my pants like a little kid! There were people sitting pretty close to me and I kept saying "I can't believe I peed my pants!", and the nurse kept telling me to shush - she was so embarrassed for me. But, I mean, HELLO! It was totally apparent that I peed my pants when I passed out! I thought it was kind of funny.
I had to call Jay to come get me - they wouldn't let me drive home because I almost passed out again when they sat me up. I got pee on the seat of his Chevelle! I thought he was going to have a heart attack! But I told him I peed my pants, so he should have put a towel down or something. It's going to be a long time before I give blood again! And hopefully that's all I'll 'donate!"

On Thursday, I had dinner with the Hendies and EB's friend, Norma. We also watched the first episode of Parks and Recreation. It was sooo funny! And it's funny to watch a show that's based around what I do!
Saturday was date night. We went to the Eagle Brook Saloon and drank some of their yummy, yummy beer. It was nice to get out and just chill with Jay. And I'll leave you with these images of two of my favorite guys:
