575 car permit

A day of rest

Yesterday was several more hours of cleaning and party prep for our first annual barbecue and croquet tournament. It was a lot of fun, and I got to wear this awesome shirt.


I didn't realize when I ordered that it was polyester. Not the best choice for the hottest 4th of July on record in Washington State. I suppose I should have taken a picture of all the awesome prizes I found to give away.

Our friend Jayme stayed the night. We took him to our favorite breakfast spot before dropping him off at the bus station, then visited Garrett's parents for a bit to drop off their Tupperware and some leftover ears of corn from the party. Their cat Bella was being her usual goofy self.

Bella requests that you maintain a respectful distance.

We're spending the rest of the day hiding out in the basement with the AC on, eating party leftovers, drinking extra party beers, and watching TV. Not a bad way to end a holiday weekend.
