From wet and cold to a beautiful weekend...

Monday, February 24, 2003
Friday night I thought the rain was going to bring down our plans, but that wasn't the case. We met up with friends right after work and headed down for the BBQ at the rodeo. It was cold and a bit drizzly, but we still had a great time. Some friends from high school were in town for the BBQ as well, so we managed to meet up for a little while and hang out with them, too. We called it an evening around 11:30 and then had the long drive back after walking in the rain back to our car. We had a party member who thought that was a good idea, so we just all humored her!!! It turned out to be a bit of an adventure, though, so there weren't really any complaints!!

Saturday the weather was beautiful. I kept a neighbor's little boy for a while on Saturday and then went to get ready for Mardi Gras. Our friends came over around 8:00 and we hit the road again! We had a lot of fun and caught a lot of beads (no, I didn't work for my beads!)!! Actually Michael caught most of my beads...he only wore one and put the rest around my neck!
Pictures of both Friday and Saturday are posted.

Sunday was pretty low-key. Michael was at his parents' for a while then played ball with friends. Afterwards we had dinner at mother's. One day this week we're going back to have dinner there again...he still hasn't met my father b/c we can't get our schedules together when daddy is home from work - but I think when he comes home this time he'll be home for a while so we should have plenty of opportunities!
