Today is our Pearl's actual birthday! We will be celebrating with DH's cousins. They have 4 kids and Pearl fits in between the bottom two. They have a blast together and we're looking forward to spending the day together.
Right now we're looking at playing in the pool and having a cook-out. Traditionally on the Feast of St. Lawrence, people only had cold foods since he was martyred over a grill.
However, we decided it would be more fun for the kids to grill hot dogs over the fire pit and have s'mores. There will be some cold food though; it's pretty warm in the afternoons.
There was talk that we might go raspberry picking too; hopefully, since that would be so cool!
Hope your August days are full of sun, family and friends!
