Fair Weather Friends

Monday night, Will, Spencer and I met the Knickerbockers and Nana and Boppa at the Greensboro Fair.
Jimmy got us VIP passes (parking, admission, ride coupons) but IV had a bad, hive breakout so they stayed at home.
The boys used up 16 ride coupons pretty quickly; Dad, Will and Dana tried out some Fair foods; we all enjoyed the wonderful weather--- and then we met at Ghassons for dinner...and laughs!

World's Ugliest Finger Puppet

Last week, my sweet husband was bragging about his new, sharp Leatherman.
Yesterday, I got a text that he was headed from work to Urgent Care:
Now, we need to figure out what the stitching on his finger means in Japanese!
I already looks up OOPS and's neither of those :-)

Our Patriot's Day weekend ended up being a weekend of rest-- which was greatly needed.  We went to Spencer's soccer game Saturday morning and enjoyed watching the team have a fantastic game and a solid win.

I was sick all weekend with a head/chest cold so we skipped the Bush Hill festival (sadly) and came home and watched football all afternoon and rested. Will and Joe went to The Flaming lips concert on Saturday night---again I stayed home and slept.  (Codeine based cough syrup is a helluva mistress....)

Sunday, we missed the 9-11 tribute concert because again, I just stayed home and slept, snotted, coughed and complained....but we managed to see Nana and Boppa for a little while so Spence could celebrate Grandparent's Day.

Lastly, we celebrated Bowser's third birthday. Each year, we celebrate with an ice cream cone.  Lacie doesn't tolerate non-doggie food well, so she got a tiny ice cream.  Bowser wolfed his down quickly and then went to each person begging for their's! He also got a smoked meat knuckle (gross, right?) earlier in the week for his birthday.
