Home, Safe but Sick
One of the things I like best about coming home from their house is bringing a full complement of agricultural products: cut orchids, raw honey, meyer lemons, key limes, satsuma tangerines, valencia oranges, rosemary, avocadoes and firewood.
Highlight of the trip for the boys: We stopped at McDonald's for dinner on the way home. In the car, between the gas station and the restaurant, S. asked his older brother, "Do you remember when we went to McDonald's before? It was the first time ever!" H. replied, "It may have been the first time for you, but not for me." I'm glad that they don't eat fast food very often, but the little toys made a fine distraction in the car until they fell asleep. And the salad with grilled chicken was pretty good.
We took the germs with us and shared liberally in the car, I guess. One boy sick on the way down, all four of us home today, coughing, fever, etc.
