Friday: Went to the Wright's house with the Scantlens for raclette on the Wright's new screened-in porch. It was the perfect night (weather-wise) to be out like that. The food was great and we laughed so, so hard. All three of us ladies are pregnant ... just an interesting tidbit for you. We all live within a few blocks of one another so I think it must be something in the water. Harhar. I hate that joke.
I forgot to take my camera so you'll just have to visualize us sitting around a hot plate of veggies and cheese, eating and laughing by candlelight. Here's a picture to get you started.
Saturday: I worked all day. We received a last minute dinner invite and after work Nate, the girls and I went out to his Aunt and Uncle's house in Albion for dinner. The girls loved it. Again, perfect weather to be outside. Aunt Sheri sent us home with a bunch of fresh produce from her garden. They are so sweet to our kids and made sure they had lots of fun things to do ... they had some fireworks, let the girls play by the koi pond and then Uncle Bob lit one of these thingys.
Sunday: The usual.
Now I'm in my jammies and ready to hunker down on the couch with Nate and watch The Glades on OnDemand. Oooh, or maybe some House Hunters.
Oh, before I forget ... the library is the best place ever for little kids on a rainy, cold day. We were there for about an hour and a half this morning coloring, reading, playing with blocks, etc. They love it there and it's a great use of our time indoors.
Also, the book store down the street from us has lots of .99 cent books and I just finished one not realizing that it's the first in a series of three ... the book store doesn't have the other two, but the library does. I love free! I'm glad because I really want to know how this thing ends. It's a creepy story and it had me so freaked out the other night I had Nate go check the doors. Maybe after some tv I'll go read and scare myself silly again. Sounds like a reasonable bedtime plan ...
