Brett had the All American Waffle -- also known as the whipped cream special.
Back home, Rachel and I went down to the barn to give Jackson a bath. Chris went off to visit the goats. I worked on Jackson's tail while Rachel scrubbed him with a sponge and soapy water. Jackson was in heaven, bumping us gently with his nose. When Jackson was squeaky clean, we let him graze in the pasture. Chris joined us there.
It was really hot today, pushing 100F, and we were melting. Jackson went back to his stall and the kids went into the pool. I almost took my walking boot off and joined them. Almost.
After lunch, they were right back in the pool. Brett's son, Scott, and his girlfriend, Jen, came up from San Diego. It wasn't long before they were in the pool as well. Kersey was in heaven. She has taken a particular liking to Rachel.
Tacos for dinner tonight. Both Jen and Scott are chefs and I asked Jen to help me make the taco meat. It was fantastic. Its so much fun to watch them work -- she chopped up the onions in perfect, tiny squares. I chopped up the tomatoes in big, uneven chunks.
Another perfect day.
