Well, Flickritis has permanently set in. It isn’t so much, “Takeapicturetakeapicturetakeapicture. It is more like, do I have my camera with me? Good.” I think most people understand. Deep down.
A lovely weekend. Gabe, Rachel and Dexter came for a visit. It was very nice. A quick recap:
-Went to restaurants (Bubs, Island Cafe)
-Presents for Rhen! (cool giraffe toy and BALLS)
-Dexter and Rhen (goodfellas)
-Trip to Stockholm and Nelson, WI (must hone my driving skills) Bought cheese
-Gabe fixed dishwasher (I quote Gabe, “It’s mostly just common sense.” I check my pockets, can’t find common sense. Cancel Sears sevice visit Monday)
-Rachel does like scary movies
-Gabe and I laughing like loons taking off weird screen behind vent grill (why???)
-Garvin Heights lookout
-Duck watching (talked with old guy who feeds ducks and called them, “Poopies”)
-Saying goodbye (sniff)
Rhen’s mind has blossomed with the visit. He’s opened up to the world, more so. I mean can he get anymore freakin’ cute? Rhen and Dexter jammed it up right away. Dex showed Rhen some tricks.
I also would like to think that Gabe blew things up for Rhen a bit too. It’s called a Blackberry. My mind blown, too.
Rachel was a bit nauseous. I don’t know. Guess, she doesn’t travel all that well, but still quite the trooper. I mean look at these girls! Swing-wing-a-ding-swing! Woot! I even helped out on the pushing but I experimented (thankfully) with my technique on Christi first. Perfected it before I moved on to Rachel.
So sad to see them go. It was too soon. But we are definitely looking forward to next year and a trip to KC. Good times. Good people. Seriously Rachel and Gabe, real estate is cheap in Stockholm and the cheese, well it’s good.
The beautiful people
