These past couple of days have treated us so well.
Saturday afternoon we spent laying by the pool and it was very needed. After spending practically the entire month of June either in Mexico or laying by the beach at Hatteras we gained quite the tan. But since moving to Annapolis we were missing some time in the sun.
Sunday morning was a good one. A while back, when Ben and I were looking for places to live this summer, I somehow through a ton of connections found our current home. It was a great deal and the perfect location and Ben said to me, “I owe you a crêpe.” He knows that I have been smitten by Sofi’s Crepes in Annapolis as I have visited over the past four years. This entire summer I have not let him forget this IOU and we finally went on Sunday morning.
Our next stop was over to the farmer’s market to stock up on chocolate milk (seriously the best I have ever had, think melted chocolate ice cream in all its glory), vegetables, and a bouquet of flowers I had my eye on. They made themselves right at home in our little abode. We were off to church and then spent the rest of the afternoon watching the World Cup before I headed off to work. Might I add I predicted Germany to win and won the Radford family bracket pool. Major bragging rights in this household.
On Tuesday we headed to Six Flags on a whim, and it was a real good decision. Ben and I have never gone on a roller coaster together and it was a blast. Our first one was a wooden roller coaster that looked nice and easy (I mean there were like five-year olds riding this thing), but boy was my perception wrong. Apparently I had more confidence in myself. We worked our way up on the roller coaster list from the wooden to the standing up one, then on to the feet dangling one, and then the storm of the century rolled in. Sadly, our fun was cut short when the sky turned black. I really hope we can make a trip back to finish off the roller coasters (I was looking forward to Gotham City) and head on over to the water park. I truly forgot how fun those things can be!
