Weekend Recap

So Friday started with a morning drive to West. Holly was finally getting to go to her mom's, but due to a death in the family, we had to make it an early trip. She's doing fabulous in school, so I figured one missed day won't hurt.

So that got me home nice and early to get ready for a girls' night out. One I had been planning for a few weeks with a friend. We got to downtown Ft. Worth a little earlier than most places started getting going in the evening. But we enjoyed a nice dinner at the Flying Saucer out on the deck which was VERY enjoyable with the weather. After that we walked around town stopping in at a number of other places and ending the night at Pete's Dueling Piano Bar. All in all a very enjoyable, relaxing night full of laughs and just plain forgetting about all responsibilities.

Can't wait till we do it again, Kristi!!

Saturday Larry and I ran out to East Texas for the afternoon/early evening. Larry's grandmother is in poor health right (prayers for her would be greatly appreciated), so we went to spend some time with her. Our family and friends had gathered at her house to keep her company and to spend some time together with a big fish fry...GOOD STUFF!
Larry had also brought along his shot gun, my rifle, and his new hand gun (well new to him) that my parents recently gave him. That thing has been sitting above the fridge for as long as I could remember, having never been used since it was given to my dad before I was born. They were happy to pass it on to someone who would enjoy it. He wanted me to practice more with mine (oh which I don't think I mentioned. It's PINK! He's been wanting to get me a gun for a long time, and when I saw that I told him he could buy THAT ONE for me.)

After we were done practicing, my nieces and nephew arrived. Craig knew we had our guns, so he had happily brought along his BB gun and air pellet guns. I was still standing back in the area where we shot the guns when he arrived. I'm personally not that into guns (try to enjoy them for Larry as he tries to enjoy some of my activities for me), but I did enjoy shooting Craig's air guns with him. And I think he really enjoyed showing me how to work them and helping me work on aiming. I greatly enjoyed my time with him.

Sunday Larry and I went to go see Eagle Eye in the morning. We both liked it. They had a few problems with the film though so we got free passes for another movie. They have special price for movies before noon Fri-Sun, so we get to see two movies for two for only $10. Not bad!!! Then we headed to pick Holly up and stopped by the grocery store to pick up so shrimp, crab cakes, and sweet potatoes that Larry cooked for us (Holly opted for a T.V. diner). And relaxed for the rest of the evening.

All in all a nice weekend!!

YAY!!! It sounds like a wonderful weekend. I am so happy for you. Rob and I have had three days together and it's been so nice. No Lorelli, just us (and the house people). We have watched tv, and hung out, and spent time together before I go back to the world of work tomorrow.
