Tuesday is a Sun Day

After a LOT of rain last night it was time for something different. Sure enough after a morning grey, the sky opened up blue as could be. I spent so much time harping on the boys to repeat their sunblock... well I got burned myself. A minor detail.

One of the highlights of today was RAW MEAT SANDWICHES for lunch. This was standard fare for Granny growing up, and also a real treat for me as a child. For you nervous parents, we are quite careful choosing what beef to consume.  Nicco remembered trying 'raw meat' in Tyringham and did not hesitate to cook his burger today, but Leo, Sean and I happily filled our plates with the uncooked beef, Chow Chow mustard pickle, red onion, and Crazy Salt. Sean cleverly added cheese to the mix. It was all delicious.

Sean's is... just right? (note perfect avocado on the side)
Along with frequent applications of sun screen this afternoon, the boys spent time on the beach, and we all played BananaGrams by the pool. Perhaps this sounds dull, but while on vacation boring is redefined as relaxing!

Then Granny and I had a dinner out with some clients of mine, and the boys went to dinner at....where else but Hamburger Heaven. Guess it was a beefy kind of day.
