Love Old Friends

Un was in town with her family yesterday. Doris and her family also came over for supper. It was a blast! We started out at Louie's. They mopped the floor while we were there. Alan was shocked to find out that they mop the floor. He he!

We tried LSU, but the tiger was sleeping, the Indian Mounds were being redone, and the sun was hot. Add potty-training kids and a total lack of convenient bathrooms, and that didn't last long. (Someone - name omitted to protect the innocent - peed behind the tiger cage. :) Since he was too young to be arrested, we figured it was pretty safe. Plus, you know that you personally know at least one person whose done it and was not too young to be arrested. LOL.)

Then we went to the State Capitol. Ander was all like, la de da...I do this all the time because my daddy works here...but everyone still had a great time. It was air-conditioned and the guards seemed to like the kids. Un's husband pulled about ten things out of his pockets while going through security - a cell phone, an extra cell for the kid to play games on, was pretty funny. Then he walked through security, set up the alarm, and had to pull more stuff out of his pocket. :) Alan walked through without taking anything out of his pocket. The guard started to say something, Alan flashed his badge, and the guard said, "oh, sorry, sir...go on." Alan felt important. LOL again.

For supper, we ordered pizza, calzones, salads, and spinach artichoke dip. Yummy! The kids (five in all) had a raging time throwing plastic balls all over the bedroom while the grownups sat around talking and pretending the chaos in the bedroom wasn't happening.

I'm paying today. My head hurts, my body aches, and I am so tired. But it was worth it!
