After a week of rain and storms, I decided since we couldn’t be outside swimming or riding our bikes or anything else, we would bring an outside activity in!! So Friday evening I broke out my kitchen torch, marshmallows, graham crackers, and hershey bars, and we all gathered around the kitchen island and had Smores Night!! Oh what fun and how YUMMY!!
Saturday we met our friends, Loren and Brian, for dinner/date night with our hubbies!! We met at a wonderful little cafe in one of my favorite parts of town. As usual when Loren and I are together, there was lots of laughter. We all ordered our dinners and were completely surprised when Loren and I got our meals, they were HUGE. We had both ordered a strip steak served over twice baked home fries, now these people mean business, we so should have SHARED!! Dan and Brian, on the other hand, had normal sized meals, then helped us with ours, and we still both took some home!!
Loren and I being our goofy/cheesy selves with our MAN-sized meals!!!
Here we all are posing outside the restaurant!!!
After a great weekend of family and fun, we had to head to the airport Sunday for Dan to go to China, AGAIN!! The kids came over in the morning for a while and brought our granddaughter to see him off. Please keep him in your prayers today, he left Chicago about 10:30 this morning and his flight is about 15 hours long, so he will be in the air until sometime around 1:00 AM CST.
"May the LORD keep watch between you and me when we are away from each other.” Matthew 31:49
Believing you all had a great weekend!!
Counting it all Joy!!
