It was an excellent four days with Sam, Bri, Mander, Mary, and Maggie. We talked, watched movies, ate a bunch of crap, shopped, ate out, went on walks, and talked some more. I got to see Baby Owen (aka Willow), Kate, and Maggie (whom I hadn't met yet); and all three babies were amazingly well behaved. It was the longest I have been away from Briz, and I was better than I thought about missing her. I guess it helps when I know her Dad is doing a good job taking care of her. But my favorite thing about the weekend was just laughing with my friends. No one thinks we're as funny as we do, but that's what makes it great.
I'm already looking into our trip next year!
P.S. I had to work really hard to keep swearing out of this post.
