What awful weather! Would you believe we had snow flurries again both Saturday and Sunday????
We spent this weekend at the beautiful new home of Mark’s sister Dawn and her husband Dan. They have two sons who are a little older than Isaac. Needless to say, all the boys had a blast. We hardly ever saw them. They spent most of their time playing together in the basement, surfacing briefly to eat and watch TV. They all got along extremely well. Jonny actually petted Wolfie the poodle – the last time we visited he wouldn’t even go down on the floor when Wolfie was around. I suppose it helped that Wolfie is recovering from a broken leg and was tethered for most of our visit. The first photo is of Wolfie on a bathroom break. He wasn’t interested in doing ANYTHING except coming back inside where it was warm!
Ben tolerated the 3.5 hour drive fairly well. He seemed to enjoy the visit since he had more people than usual doting on him. The trip didn’t seem to affect his sleeping habits at all. Can’t say the same for Jonny who awoke multiple times both nights we were there.
We had a great family dinner on Saturday night – Mark’s mom was also able to join us for a wonderfully flavorful roast beef dinner.
On the way home we had Mc Donalds. Evidently they are the only fast-food restaurant open on Easter Sunday.
We had a great weekend trip. Thanks Dawn and Dan!
In other news, Mark came home last night and started priming the dining room walls. Here they are now – all white (a big improvement over the deep green already) and ready to paint!!!!
