When we got to my folk's house, we had some yummy oreo cake to celebrate dad's birthday. Afterwards, John and I watched The Gladiator. Eddie Grover showed a short clip at the BBI last week and so we had to see it again(BTW, Eddie did a FABULOUS job). I was a little shell-shocked by some of the violence, since I am accustomed to the likes of Clifford these days. However, I give two thumbs up for Maximus and the barbarian hoard.
The next day we went to Barbara Ellen's bridal shower. The highlight for me was when we got to interrogate Barb with a *nosy* question when she opened our present.
We then rushed back to mom's house so I could meet Lindsay's boyfriend Jim. He's perfect! A total doll! I then got summoned outside by Finn to see his latest production.
Everything, including the kitchen sink, was used to make this drumset(actually it was a bathroom sink). Dad is remodeling Lindsay's bathroom, so that explains the sink in the backyard... and a mirror:)

Calvin had fun climbing some funky metal steps.
I wanted to take them home with me.
I could have stayed outside all day--mom and dad live by the mountains. However, mom made us leave by 3:30 sharp so we did not get stuck in another storm. We crammed so much in, it's hard to believe we were there for less than 24 hours. And now, I must unpack:(
