Nice Weather

Posted: March 10, 2008 by jgrantmarshall in family

Wow… what an AWESOME day we had;  the first full day we’ve had to enjoy Daylight Savings Time!  I was guessing the temperature to be about 65 degrees but the bank clock on the way home (@ 1700) said 69 degrees… FAHRENHEIT!  We took some time out of our grocery shopping to stop at Skinner Butte park to play on the BIG playstructure and to take a quick walk.

I have to share with you a comment I heard while on the playground.  A bigger than average sized lady yelled to her children, in front of God and everyone, to “go and play… Mommy’s smoking!”  I guess that my life is pretty sheltered when that statement caught me off guard.  I guess it just makes me laugh and feel bad at the same time.  Anyway, the park was as packed as I have ever seen it, but it is still a lot of fun.  If you have kids and find yourself in Eugene, Skinner Butte park is pretty nice.

Later, we continued our “cultural experience” at WinCo.  That place is always a zoo and no more needs to be said.

When we finally got home and put groceries away, I fired up the BBQ for this year’s first hamburger feast.  I sure do love BBQ hamburgers… especially the ones I BBQ!  Today I added to my “secret” recipe.  Besides onion soup mix, I threw in some Worcestershire Sauce.  I don’t think I put enough in… but, then again, no one complained and Grant even downed a whole hamburger (last year he could only eat a half).  Has anyone ever put bacon bits inside the patty?  If I had some, I was also going to try this…

I added some pics to Flickr which can also be seen in the gallery to the right.

What did you do today to enjoy the weather?

    I’m catching up, and reading your blog…but this one cracked me up. First the lady at the park, and then your “cultural experience” at Winco. I’ve been there a few times and you’re right. That place was crazy!!

  2. Missy, yeah, that lady was a trip… if you’re that open to say something like that in public, it makes ya wonder what is said not in public.

    Speaking of WinCo, we spent a romantic Friday night there tonight… ah, I guess I’m old people now.
