We had a full weekend. Friday night we headed across the river for Carolyn's surprise birthday party, which turned out to be a lot of fun. Carolyn had no idea & she's pretty hard to surprise, so good job party planners. Saturday we had 2, yes 2, weddings to attend. The 1st one was at 5 & the 2nd one was at 6:30. We had a good time, but no dinner + open bar = 1 pair of drunk Baldwins. See the proof here.
Yesterday got off to a rough start, but we manged to get some stuff done, i.e. cutting the grass for the 1st time in about a month. You can see how high it is in the pictures. So back in April we bought 6 trees from Lowe's & planted them in the back yard in an attempt to block our weird neighbor's mystery rust garden. The trees died. John had to dig them up & take them back to Lowe's for a refund. They came with a year warranty & luckily we kept the receipt. Now we've got to find something else to plant there.
I finally got a bike. Well, kind of. It's John's old, college mountain bike. His friend Joe had been using it, but he doesn't ride it anymore, so he gave it back to John. He put road tires on it, which apparently makes it a hybrid. I still haven't ridden it, but I will soon. I'm pretty excited about it. I'll report back.
As you can probably tell by the pictures, I did a whole lot of nothing yesterday, aside from leisure reading & carb-loading at Cracker Barrel. That's what 100 glasses of wine & no dinner will do to you. Overall, good weekend though.
