Jersey Girl picks Jersey Corn!!
WooHoo! The Jersey corn is here...and it is delish!
Tuesday was pretty quiet here, Princess and I took a ride to
pick up a pretty apron from a fellow Freecycler, and then stopped off at Barnes N Noble
to look for a book for her Kindergarten Curriculum (they did not have it, so we'll order it),
she played on the train table and we read some books before heading home, where we hung out playing "Hi-HO Cherry-O!" and "Trouble" before heading down to the basement to do laundry and play some Skee Ball until Farmer Dad got home.
Then, we picked our first ears of corn and within a few minutes
it went from our yard to our table, now that's fresh veg!
After eating dinner, we headed over to our municipal complex for our
local police department's National Night Out festivities.
Princess had a great time (she is something of a police officer "groupie"),
meeting the various police officers from our town. The "Water Rescue Team",
"Animal Control","SWAT Team" and her favorite...the "Motorcycle Unit"!
Whenever we see them on the road, she is fascinated. I thought it was the Harley, but after seeing
the guy under the helmet, I'm thinking she just has very good taste in boys!
Yes, boys..he was much closer to her age, then mine.
She sat in the rescue boat,the D.A.R.E. car (a bit like Knightrider-lol)
and a fire truck. She played games and went in the bouncy house and bouncy
obstacle course. She collected many of the officers "autographs" in the little booklet they handed out
and won a glider plane ,stuffed animal, "police badge" and "tattoo" .
They had free hot dogs,Italian Ices (water ices to some of you),cookies,popcorn and pencils
and stickers for all the kiddies. I'm sure they had some stuff we missed, because we kept going back by the motorcycles (I swear it was Princess's idea!).
