Weekend Happenings

We had a fairly quiet weekend. The weather was being wonky, but it never really rained, although they said it would. Friday night we went to a nice gathering at Eric's old bosses house. It was a reunion of the old crew.

MariRae was his boss (in the pink) back in the "Pappyland" days. She was also our realtor when we moved into our home. Which was 9 years ago this weekend! It was very nice to see everyone again. She likes to have these get-togethers every couple of years.

On Saturday we ran some errands and went on several walks throughout the day. Trying to keep in shape and get those steps in!

Last night we went to dinner at Pizzeria Uno. Had some great pizza and beer. Then went for another big walk after dinner. 

This coming weekend, we're taking a little trip to the Finger Lakes for our anniversary. We'll be staying here. It'll be nice to get away for a night. (I know, we were just "away" but still... it'll be nice!)

Random Update

For those who are still faithfully checking on the blog, this post is for you.

Eric had blood work this past week and received an 'all-clear' once again. So we celebrate his continued remission.

We really haven't been terribly busy, but we have been doing a few things here and there.
We made it over to the Movie Tavern one day last weekend and had a fabulous time, as always.

We've had massive amounts of rain this summer. This was our backyard last week. 

We went to Kelly's birthday party! She's 12 now. We left the giraffe with her, she seemed pleased.

The classic blow-fish photo.

We went to the annual Margaritafest yesterday.

We were joined by John & Louise this year.

And I snuck in my new favorite Martini while at Margaritafest.

The Retreat

We went to The Retreat last night with our friends Bob and Robin. It was so good to see them again. We were having so much fun chatting away we didn't realize we'd been there for 3 hours!

This was my dinner, the Chicken Francaise. It's my favorite and I always get it. It's always delicious and I always have leftovers.

Summer Time

We've had a quiet week and relaxing weekend. Last night we had a date at Smokey Bones, one of our favorites. I had a fabulous Berry Sangria. (And steak tacos for dinner.) We had a nice evening.

Friday night we watched the Phoenix fireworks at John's house on the river. (In Phoenix) (NY) It was a fun time as always. It's always the "first party" of the summer, kind of a kick-off celebration.

And in other news... 

Alex cleaned his room!
It took 3 days. There were 3 bags of garbage, 2 bags of clothes for the good will and 2 bins of "stuff" to save. 

And he finally starts a summer job tomorrow, he's going back to the same place as last year, The Great Outdoors RV Superstore up in Fulton. He'll be doing landscaping, and probably be asked to clean some RV's again too.

We're back!

Ok, we've been back for 2 weeks now. I've completely neglected the poor blog. The first week back was a whirlwind of activity with reunions, parties, colonoscopies (all clear for Eric!) and concerts. The second week back was complete exhaustion. And now we're just getting back in the swing of things, so here I am.

Not really much going on, we had an amazing trip and didn't want to come back. The weather was perfect, and the overall vacation was fabulous. Couldn't have asked for anything better. We're now planning the next adventure. (Ottawa in July, Cape Cod in September and possibly Bermuda in April???) One thing we've learned this past year is that you have to live while you can, life is short. Get out there, experience the world, and enjoy the time you have with loved ones. So hop to it! Get up and get going. And who wants to go to Bermuda with us next April?? (Cruise from Baltimore, stays 3 days in port in Bermuda, how fun is that?!) Let's goooo!

Pre-Cruise Fun

Here are a few pictures from our day in Baltimore. We had dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe.

We explored the Inner Harbor.

Lots of boats in the harbor.

Eric made a new friend.

And this was the view from the hotel room.

We're looking forward to boarding the ship at noon tomorrow. We'll mostly be out of the Internet world, but hope to check in on Wednesday from Grand Turk.
