We had a really nice week here weather-wise so Jen and Grace spent most of the week by the water. On Monday Grace got to check out her new pool which she really seemed to enjoy. Unfortunately she fell getting out of it and jammed her toe. She wouldn't walk on it so Jen took her to the doctor. Fortunately it is nothing serious, just a slight sprain. She seemed to be getting better throughout the day and is completely back to normal now.
Tuesday called for a trip to the ocean to model the new shades. The tide was out and it was much less windy so Grace was able to enjoy herself much more.
Wednesday was a trip to a local beach where I grew up. Grace and Jen met up with Auntie Melinda, James and Sam for some more time in the sun.
Jen also went to meet up with Auntie Kris, Kathryn and Karina at the pool for the day on Friday. I have a feeling if this keeps up she is going to sprout fins and swim away like a little mermaid. We took the weekend off from the water to do a little car shopping. I really didn't want to buy a new car until Jen went back to work but between the MA sales tax increase next month, 0% financing, and the federal tax credit for a new car purchase that were were planning to take advantage of anyway, the time was right. So, as of tomorrow we will be proud owners of a Dodge Grand Caravan. Jen fought getting a mini-van for a long time but after seeing all of the convenience features she finally relented.

We ended the weekend with a cookout at the Shahs and a sample of Biren's homemade Limoncello, Mmmmmm. Good way to end a weekend. Below is Grace upset that she didn't get a taste.
