Staycation Highlights: Day 2 (Sunday)

--Q opened his Father's Day gifts--a Fiesta Pie Baker in Cobalt and an Individual Baker in Sunflower. He likes the Fiesta bakeware better than Pyrex, Corningware, or anything else. And I'm more than happy to indulge him. We also got him a the season 4 DVDs of Mission: Impossible.

--We went to the Waffle House for a late breakfast. I sometimes get cravings for their food.

--Back at home, Q watched an episode of MI. It looked strange watching Mr. Spock in a fake beard pull a gun on a stewardess.

--After a few hours by the pool, Q went in to watch a baseball game. Kyle hung out in his room. Lucas and I watched National Lampoon's Vacation. Again. I REALLY need to buy a copy of the DVD.

--We went to dinner at a place called My Thai. The name may be a corny pun, but the food is tasty. I highly recommend the honey glazed shrimp.

--After dinner, we wanted to go play pool. The first place we went to--Uncle Charlie's American Grill--is now out of business. So we drove to a nearby bowling alley to use their table. But we were greeted with a sign stating that only patrons over age 21 can enter the bar/billard room. D'oh!

--The Dodge was making funny squeaking sounds while steering. When we got home, we were greeted to a big honkin' fluid spill on the floor of the garage. Double d'oh! Staycation Day 3 will begin with a trip to the shop.

--After the sun went down, we went to the neighborhood park to throw baseballs.
