It rained all day…….

It rained all day today, literally, but it didn’t matter much since we spent it as planned simply hanging out with Lorraine and Randy. It was a perfect day, so relaxing. Randy actually had knee surgery this week and was convalescing but one couldn’t have told since he was up and about.

The girls played in the hot tub, had lots (and lots) of books read to them, watched a movie, had ice-cream and played some games. Connor had lots of naps and a doting Lorraine. We read the papers, surfed the internet, talked some politics and generally chatted for hours. Lynne and Randy talked a lot about cooking and even visited the Asian food store while Lorraine and I got caught up on some old friends. Randy and I actually got to play four games of chess. Normally I really enjoy these games and we are pretty even but today he was in top form. I lost three and was lucky that he agreed to a draw on the fourth as we had to head home. Connor’s screams saved Daddy for the first time.

Of course we took some pictures. I got some great ones of Isabel which mirror her personality to a tee in addition to a few where she really got into helping with dinner.
I also got a typical Anja shot, they now have a cat, Marley, and Anja simply cannot leave her down. On this we have a theory. Anja loves her soft blanket (blankey) and she sucks her thumb. Anybody who sucks their thumb (or knows somebody who does) will tell you that snuggling up to a soft blanket whilst doing this is really nice. Well, Anja is not allowed to have her blanket other than in bed, tough parents I know, but we think she has found a snuggly four legged substitute!!
