We had a great weekend! It involved no work on the house, some alone time, time with friends and time with the children. Can one ask for more? A big thanks goes to my mom for watching the children today while we went to the gardens.
Friday night my mom asked if the children wanted to spend the night with her and, of course, they did. That gave Bryce and me an opportunity to test drive a car we are considering purchasing. Sadly, the Saturn is coming to it's end. We are friends with a gentleman whose family owns the dealership, so he brought the car home and let us drive it around for the night. Pretty nice service huh? We went to another dealership and looked at a different car but unfortunately the salesman seemed to not know much about the car - so we left. We went out to dinner and had a lovely meal.
On Saturday, we went to our friends' house to celebrate their daughter Hannah's birthday. They had delicious food (even made from scratch baked beans!) and the children had a great time playing outside in the gorgeous weather we had.
Marci made the flower cupcakes and they turned out really cute!
Our friends, Sonja and Ryan, invited us to go with them and some other friends, Kristin and Tim, to an event at a local sculpture garden. They had local vendors of food and wine. I ate myself silly, as did Bryce, and it was all delicious. We had a lovely time! I would have taken some pictures of the food because the presentation was so beautiful but I kept eating it too fast! On a funny note, Kristin and I were accosted in the bathroom by a woman who had clearly had a bit too much to drink! That was just bizarre.

This path was on our way out. The picture from the top of the post was in the middle of the gardens. Really beautiful.
