Cullen and I are on the same page today. This is about how much energy I had.
This weekend was an unintentionally busy one. Friday afternoon, we did get to enjoy some beautiful weather and spent a good amount of time on the back patio.
Friday night, we went to a family friend's house for dinner, came home and put the boys to bed and caught up on TV that we had missed last week (Awake and GCB anyone?). Then Saturday we hung out with some friends during the day and had our sitter come that evening so we could go to dinner and see The Hunger Games. My official review: I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either. I really enjoyed the books, and I realize it is difficult to get every detail in the movies, but I thought the character developments and relationships really suffered. I love the way they portrayed the Capital and the arena, but I didn't feel emotionally connected to the characters like I did in the book. Kev did not read the book and had a million questions on the way home because so much of it just didn't make sense. Have you ever seen a movie that was better than the book?
On to Sunday, we had an unexpected, but welcomed, visit from our friend Ginna and Tyler. We knew them back when we were stationed in NC, but for the past 3 years, they have been in Alaska. They are en route to Missouri for Tyler's next assignment and decided to pit stop in Monterey for a night to see us. It was great to see them and meet their sweet baby, Caroline.
Cullen actually woke Bennett up from his nap and said, "Bubba, spit your paci out! Your baby girlfriend is here!" I should probably be concerned that he is giving Bennett advice about girls already...
We took The VZ'a down into Monterey for a little walk and wine.
And attempted one more picture of the kids in the morning.
It didn't go as well as planned.
But one thing that we love about being in the Army, is that you always seem to know someone where ever you go. Hope the rest of your travels go well, Ginna and Tyler! Be sure to pop over to Ginna's blog to see the rest of their trip.
How's your week going?
