Something great happened this weekend: my folks took the kids for a sleepover! We haven’t been kidless for a whole 24 hours since December, and it was pretty much the greatest thing in the world. Sometimes its fun to pretend what life is like without the little rascals.
Saturday night we went out to dinner with our good friends, Aaron and Brittany (aka Beak and Cam). This was followed by some “late night” hang seshes. “Late night” is in quotes because I barely made it to 12:30. I am getting so old.
Then Sunday after sleeping in—or at least made a good attempt at it—we had a nice breakfast over at Lucia’s wine bar. Katie J. was working and hooked us up with all sorts of delicious and wonderful treats. Next stop, the record store. We fingered through records with no purpose at all, just like we used to. It was nice not having to be distracted by kids running up and down aisles and hiding below bins of records. After we picked out some jams we headed back to the front porch to listen to our finds.
It soon became time to go pick up the kids, so we headed out to the ‘burbs, but not before making one last pit stop at the Hopkins Tavern. Budweiesers and a $150 pull tabs winner!. Not a bad way to end the day.
