last night we went to a greek festival being held nearby. it is called opa! apparently, opa is a word that greeks shout out whenever they are happy. a quick word search online basically shows that it is a word that doesn't really have a meaning, other than to express happines or joy. we had jack shouting 'opa!' while we were there, and that made all the olive-skinned people there chowing down on lamb smile at us. shannon and i have always wanted to try greek food, so we went and sampled the gyros and souvlaki. we also watched some of the children do traditional greek dances in full costume. we had a good time, and jack enjoyed rocking the sunglasses. cade slept the entire time.
we are getting ready to have burgers on the grill this evening. there is nothing quite like it.
i've been quite under the weather this week. i had a cold, then i thought i had it beat the last couple of days, but it came back and bit me in the rear today.
speaking of being bitten in the booty, the yankees, already 9.5 games out of the lead in the american league east, just got swept by the angels. wow. i've been the one saying that it is a long season, and everything will level out, but, come on. the wheels are about to come off and its going to be a mess.
i am going to maine in a couple of weeks, and, to be honest, it is on my mind so much. what i mean by that is that i am really looking forward to vacation and some r. and r.
i'll end with this cute picture of our little jackson, pointing at his hand for some unknown reason and looking really cute after church today sitting at his own little picnic table in our sunroom. have a great sunday, and i'll try and post tomorrow.
