Sometime early last week, we got the idea to have a little Sunday evening gathering. Some friends with a little boy, just the Kiddo's age. Some friends with a new baby. A pot of chili with jalapenos from the garden and all the other fixins--cheese, vinegar, onions, avocados, tortilla chips...there might have been more, but I'm forgetting in my sleepiness.
The apple cake was a later addition to the plan, and the cinnamon ice cream was completely last minute. The toddler boys shot hoops and banged on the wall into the darkness, as the grown-ups chatted, and the new baby ate-and-dozed-and-ate-s'more. All in all, I'd say it was a success!
