ooof our weekend was packed! it's not always so crammed with social engagements, but when friends & buddies are in town, we try to soak it up as much as possible.
>lunch with mah girls. i left Cal for a few hours for the first time ever. in nearly 6 months he's gone EVERYWHERE with me. he's easy like that, and i like that Russ & Hayes can have their quality time. but it was time. he's a fan of the bottle, which is good to know for future reference. but, lunch all by myself with free-hands and no responsibilities was sure nice.
>penta-date. we grabbed dinner with some more friends & husbands. my friends are really good at planning fun things to do while husbands are otherwise occupied, so it's nice to get everyone together! Hayes had a blast with my mom as always.
>pho at Rice King Noodle. not to be confused with the just plain Rice King across the street, also incredibly delicious. also, our sweet Hayes was the grumpiest i've ever seen him. (apologies to the buddies!) i feel for him, this stage of life has to be hard. his desire to be understood far surpasses his ability, and it makes him so frustrated. surely, not understanding why you can't squirt Sriracha directly in your mouth would be frustrating. eye-roll.
>sunday game night. we got the buddies together for brownie & salted caramel sundaes and a three hour long game of Loaded Questions. the beeds have to know just about everything about each other, but this game brought even more goods to the table. hilarious. also, i'm still snacking on the amazing treats Annie brought & unselfishly left at our house. ta----sty.
