The day starts off well. I get an invitation from my 7-year-old sister to attend her tea party. And, don’t I feel lucky, I get to pick the date!
We pretty much killed ourselves this past weekend. We thought we could abuse our bodies with reckless abandon and get away with no consequences. We are slowly but surely discovering that we are not teenagers anymore.
We went to a cabin in the mountains this weekend with three other couples from bible study. The best part of the whole trip was when all eight of us went grocery shopping together! Have you ever tried grocery shopping in a group? It was hysterical. Especially since Kristi, Emily, and Walt are on diets. (I’m sorry but I just don’t get how Crystal Lite can be better for you than 100% orange juice!) We finally compromised. The Atkins people got to choose the breakfast menu for the first day and the rest of us got cinnamon rolls for the second day. Whew!
Other highlights include Walt trying to climb up a steep incline only to slide down the whole mountainside on his hands and knees (seemingly in slow motion!), sledding, late night conversations and movies, lots of Cranium and Guesstures, and, of course, snow ball fights!
Yay for bonding experiences!
