A day of surprises

Ok, the day starts off with CC and Baby Girl and I walking at the park. It was a beautiful morning, and we ran into Dora the Explorer. So cute! But, like CC mentioned in HER blog, she was slightly older than Dora is usually portrayed~ about 40 years or so. But we got a hello from her (I think that's what she said) and a sweet smile, so that was pleasant. Then this other lady asked me if I liked my jogging stroller b/c she has a son who lives on the beach and wanted one, etc... I told her it's great. And CC mentioned (to me later) that it might not work so well on the sand. Good point!

Fast forward to after lunch and I get a call from my dear brother Paul. He was going through town and wanted to stop by for a quick visit to see us. That was really nice! He cut his daughter Kalee's hair; it looked really good, and I asked him about it. He said, "well, I cut my own." Hmmm... Anyway, that was a treat to be sure!

So, it's date night for me and Joseph so we decide to go to Emilio's Mexican Restaurant that used to be about a zillion restaurants (location, location, location). There's this family sitting kinda next to us and they'd ordered some drinks. Well, a sharp looking guy (I can only assume is Emilio) comes out from the dark and brings them their drinks. It's hard to put this into words, but he came out PRAISING these people and making a big to-do (sp??) about their margaritas. Honestly, you would've thought they just ran a marathon or given millions to charity or something grand like that. But, nope, they just ordered a drink. And I told Jody, that's how the world is- it praises sin and it is so deceptive. I felt like I had to vent about that. It made me sad and a little mad.

Then (don't read this part, CC!) Jody and I took a left out of Emilio's and headed straight to... Yep, you guessed it- Dairy Queen! Rats!! We split a small blizzard. I don't know what the deal is with me, but like Christy said, we DID have a VERY nutritious Kashi bar for lunch. So, it was well-deserved, right? Ok, probably not.

I'd better get off so Jody can fight in some war. It's hard for him to do that when I'm on the computer. We're "camping out" tonight- WHEEE! I love when that happens. Ok, good night, people.

Ps. Heard from my mom and she and my dad are having a swell time. She said Mt. Rushmore is beautiful. I already miss them!

pps. I'm supposed to be getting a piano tomorrow- yay!

Oh, I see.. one day I say to you that we should try Emilio's some time and the next thing I know I read all about you going there with Jody! Pshh. Oh well, I guess that's how it goes when you get left out of date night... sobble. Just kidding.

A Blizzard too! I got left out of everything today! Booo.. But at least I'm not gonna be left out of free Dublin DPs tomorrow!! Yay.

I'm glad you had a fun visit w/ Paul and Kalee. Did she mention anything about her "best friend". Rats. She probably already forgot about me... That happens when kids turn 7. Yep.

Have fun tonight with the big "camp out"!! :)

P.S. Yay for Pwe and Pancake @ Rushmore! And yay for the "practice" piano!! :) You learn first and then teach me. Okay?

No, Kalee didn't mention my special friend- you! sobble?? I like that word.

Yes, I'm stoked about the piano; hopefully I'll make better use of it than I do my guitar- hee hee:)

Rebekah said...

You're getting a piano????
Good for you! I hope you enjoy it!

Well, I was supposed to get it (the piano) today, but alas, it didn't work out. We'll see if it ever comes to pass. If it does- yippee! and if not, then just fine. I'd love to be a piano player!!!
