Karine's birthday has been extended this year. We've turned it into a four day extravaganza. We have a four day weekend because its Independence Day on Tuesday. We nixed travel plans and decided to stay home, chill out, and do whatever Karine wants for four days. Scheduled activities include afternoons with Zeke in our luxurious inflatable swimming pool, mornings sipping coffee on the front porch, family outings to the mall, and cooperative blog sessions.
The word is staycation. We're taking a vacation, but we're staying at home.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KARINE!
