Cyndi came out to visit for her spring break this week, and we made the best of it. We went out with our friends from church two nights in a row, and Cyndi also took Arianna with her to Ladies Night at church Friday. The week started when Cyndi sort of forgot to stop at a motel on the way here and drove the distance in one day. The kids were surprised in the morning when they woke up Sunday to find Cyndi already here. And in church Sunday, she was swamped with well wishers and fellowship. I was glad for that, because her flight out of here this coming Sunday prevents her from attending church before she goes.
Last night, we had a BALL at our friends’ annual double birthday party at a local bar, Frenchie’s, in Ypisilanti. Catherine and Lauri celebrate their birthday’s together, and brings all sorts of cool uninhibited friends. The theme this year was Western, so Cyndi and I dug up my western gear and even brought stuff for my friend, Pete(Arianna’s godfather). Here are some of the less incriminating photos.
Cyndi and I early on, before too many drinks(mom, notice how relaxed I am already):
Me and Pete after a few:
Two rowdy friends, Judy and Amber, after a few more:
And finally, me and one of the birthday girls, Catherine, after a few more. Clearly, she’ wears’ tequila better than I do:
So this is how we roll when we roll, which isn’t very often. But like I said, we make the best of it, and we share it with cool, supportive (and I should add tolerant) friends. Tonight, I think we’re taking the kids out for dinner and some fambly time for our last night together until April.
