Fun with Nephew

This afternoon the hubby and I took our nephew swimming. He had SO much fun splashing around, and acting like a crazy lunatic in the pool! After our swim we were starving! Giovanni wanted pickles and cheese, so he had that, and I had this colourful platter:

I dipped my apple in almond butter:

After our snack, we went to the park and fed the ducks! Our nephew got chased by an aggressive duck that wanted more bread - it was pretty cute!

Hungry little guys:

This one had it out for Giovanni! "Come here little child, so I can eat you!"

Giovanni was not impressed:

It was so nice to get outside and enjoy a beautiful day, with my 2 favorite guys ...

The hubby:

And my precious nephew:

(except for when he is trying to strangle me):

At the end of the day, he didn't want us to take him home. He just loves spending the day with Auntie and Uncle, and we hope we can borrow him again soon :-)

We went to hubby's parents house for dinner, and they made a lovely meal of steak, potatoes, asparagus, mushrooms and garlic bread. I had a little of everything. They always buy the HUGEST steaks and massive potatoes, so I cut each in half and left the other half for someone else to eat.

I am off to do some of the homework that I didn't do today ... well, unless I can find some other way to procrastinate. Movie perhaps?

EDIT: Last night I did end up procrastinating - I watched Big Brother, and also had a little treat. I shared this organic real brew root beer with the husband (we each had half):

And then I had a small handful of organic kettle chips (if I'm going to have junk, might as well make it the healthiest junk I can find :-)

Looks like a fun day and what a cutie your nephew is.
