Today is my cousin Ashely's high school graduation party. We spent part of the afternoon at my aunt and uncles house, letting the little one run around with his cousins. He had a blast.

It's going to be a fun weekend.

I went running this morning before the rest of the house was up. It was a great time to go - there was so much wildlife out and about.

Adam, Comfort and Corinne came over this evening to hang out and catch up. They also read some articles and did some searching in the little one's latest Highlight's magazine.

When I learned you could move your save from the Octopath Traveler demo to the full game, I decided this was my activity for the next week until it arrived on Friday.

I really enjoyed the demo from awhile back and I'm looking forward to a nice classic Square turn-based RPG.

The last several months I haven't been able to get out and enjoy a lunch break consistently. Honestly I haven't been able to get out much at all since things have been so busy. Today, even though everything was still crazy, I forced myself to leave. It was hot but it was worth it to just sit in the shade for a bit.

We had a pretty active day. We headed out to the zoo before it was too hot. The little one enjoyed seeing all of the animals and kept insisting, even after he was clearly exhausted, that he wanted to see more.
In the evening when Chris was out at the movies we made some cookies together.

We have some poison ivy growing on the outskirts of our yard. It hasn't been an issue up until I realized our little one is going to start exploring and get into it soon.
So I spent the late afternoon spraying a few plants down. Here's hoping they die quickly and don't continue to come back year after year...
