Friday we started out by going to the beach with an old friend. We grew up together and stayed friends all the way through high school. We lost touch and haven't seen each other in years! We found each other on My Space and come to found out she will be spending a lot of time near me this summer. It was really neat hooking up and finding out whats going on back home. Who is married with kids etc. I hope that we will get to get together often this summer. We are even talking about a reunion of sorts with 2 of our other friends.
Friday night we went to see Sesame Street Live! We went with our friends, Angel and Trooper. We had a lot of fun. We went to Mellow Mushroom first and we had to rush so we only got sandwiches. It was fun though there is such a lively atmosphere there. We ran down to the show and made it a few minutes early. A few minutes after we got there our old friends Matt, Melissa and Miles came in and funnily enough sat in front of us lol. We enjoyed the show and some cotton candy. Anna did great. She was clapping and dancing and just totally engrossed in it all. Even Trooper stayed mesmerized through most of it.
Saturday was just had a nice day. We walked to the park that is about a mile away and let Anna spend about an hour there. Of course some how we ended up keeping an eye on a 5 year old that was out there by himself. It amazes me that a Mother would let her little boy go to the park by himself at 5. We walked back and spent the rest of the day just doing stuff around the house. Chris is cleaning out the garage and I did a few things around the house. Anna pretty much spent the day with her Daddy. She loved working with him and taking things to the dump. She likes riding in his truck!
Sunday was of course church day. We had a fish fry last night to get us ready for Small Groups. We are going to start meeting in small groups on Sunday nights. It will be fun, I think, although we have never done anything like it. If you have, why don't you tell me your thoughts on it. The fish fry was a blast. The kids ran around like crazy and Anna is even starting to come out of her shell. She was waving and talking to almost every one. Which is great for me to see because I have been worried about how shy she is. Hopefully she is finally breaking through that. Of course on the flip side of that I love that she will sit in choir practice with me without causing a fuss and even sit through the preacher talking for 10 minutes.
