Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and Homemade Mayonaisse...

One has nothing to do with the other, but that is what is happening over here today!  Jeff took Lilly to the free Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in Golden Gate Park today.  Along with being very excited for Lilly to have a great daddy day bonding experience, I am a tad bit worried about my baby (Lilly not Jeff) getting lost in the crowd.  So, before she left we went over rules.  She is to go with no one unless that person knows the safe word.  This safe word is only known by Jeff and I and will only be given to another person if the situation warrants.  Also, if she gets separated from Jeff, she is to immediately find a policeman or another mommy or daddy with a child.  Jeff suggested they have a meeting place, and my head became separated from my shoulders as it flew across the room to give Jeff a dirty look.  He wasn't serious, but really?  That isn't funny!

No One needs the safe word yet!
Daddy & Daughter Day!
Um, not sure what is going on with Lilly's smile.  She looks deranged.  
Or possibly bored with the bluegrass.

James and I are having our own bonding experience, happymommy style!  We are lounging on the bed.  James is watching DVDs on the portable player.  Well, I say watching DVDs, but really he is just putting a DVD in and then watching it for a second and then stopping it and putting a different one in the player.  So far we have started and stopped Toy Story, Toy Story 2 and Yo Gabba Gabba at least fifty times.  When not telling him to stop playing with the player and changing diapers, I am tweeting, blogging, surfing the internet and watching crazy food shows; the type of food shows that are tormenting to someone who needs to eat salads and jog constantly.  By far my favorite food of the day was the french fries with cheese curd covered in gravy.  What?  Is that legal?  

Of course, now I am hungry.  One of my latest obsessions is homemade mayonnaise.  I made it once, but got scared about it going bad, or God forbid salmonella from uncooked eggs.  So, I started researching pasteurized eggs.  Turns out you can make your own pasteurized eggs.  I may try this, or I may just head to the condiment aisle and by some.  Seems a smarter choice.

We enjoyed a great anniversary date, a relaxing Saturday and dinner with friends.  Today, so far is a win.  Any day I can be lounging on the bed with my sweet baby boy, I am in heaven!  Now if he would stop playing with the dvds so I can relax in peace!

Definitely a winning day, it seems
to me. Fun for everyone, regardless of age! Loved the pictures and am sure Jeff and Lilly had a great time. Maybe not as good a day as you and James, but, pretty great!
All good, it looks like!
Pasturized eggs - you are kidding me, right?
