Hey!  Hope everyone had a good weekend!
We had a nice one.  
Friday night we just ate pizza and relaxed.  We watched an episode of The Americans.  We're both still really enjoying that show.
On Saturday morning I did some grocery shopping.  We took turns going to the gym.  We hung out with Raylan a lot.

On Saturday night our friends Shelly and Kit came over to watch the UT-Kansas game.  Kansas is not very good, so UT won pretty handily.  Raylan hung out for a little while at first, but then he went to sleep.  We had a really fun time visiting with Shelly and Kit.  Amy made queso, and we got other snacks and some cookies to go with it.  The game was okay, but mostly it was just good to see friends. 
(Waiting on Shelly and Kit to show up, but definitely ready for the game!)

(I have food on my face?  Really?  Where?)

On Sunday the weather was great.  It was cool and breezy and sunny.  I put a blanket out in the front yard, and played with Raylan on it for a while.  Sunday afternoon Tommy and Kelly stopped by for a visit.  We chatted with them for a while, and then we all walked to Central Market for lunch (well, Raylan rolled).  We ordered from the café and then sat outside to eat.  It was great to see them.  Made for a very nice afternoon.
Sunday night we ate some Zuppa Toscana from a recipe that I found online.  It was pretty good.  Amy helped me make it, since I have a lot to learn in the cooking department (and many other departments as well).
And that was pretty much the weekend.  It was really nice.  We got some stuff done, and got to spend time with friends.  Friends are important for so many reasons, and it's been hard to keep in touch with people since we got a tiny little new boss in our house.  At the risk of sounding cheesy, friends really do make our lives richer, make us laugh, help us talk through our worries, and generally keep us grounded.  It was good to see Shelly, Kit, Tommy, and Kelly.  Thanks to them all for coming by to spend time with us.

(Walk?  Treat?  Whaddya got?)
And that was the weekend!  Have a good week!

I require hi-res copies of the two pics of y'all in UT gear with Raylan. And the Cassidy one, too.

That is all.

Thanks! Raylan is fascinated by the mirror, and the quest for the perfect shooshing glasses continues!
