Anniversary & Reunion

So yesterday was our 16th Anniversary. We had a very nice evening together.

We started out at a really nice restaurant (The Iron Bridge) not too far from home. Hubby had ribs and smothered chicken and I had three cheese chicken and shrimp fettuccine. We also had their homemade chips as an appetizer and they were really good. I tried a mango mojito which was also yummy.

Then we went to see Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull. It was pretty good. I think his other Indiana Jones movies were better, but it was worth seeing. I also have really gotten to like Shia Leboeuf and am glad to see that their may be future movies with him. The only bad part of the evening was that the film broke about 3/4 of the way through. It was the late movie and no one was in the booth. I had to go out (as no one else was moving) and get someone. It took them about 15 minutes to get the film back on the reel and fix it and start it.

Before we left, we went to the local pizza joint and ordered pizza for the boys and had it delivered so the kids were taken care of also. I told them they could rent a movie from the TV, but they chose not too.

This morning we got up and headed about an hour and a half away to hubby's family reunion. It was okay. I didn't know a soul and really only one couple spoke to us. It was not really organized or anything.

But there was a really great community pool in the park where we had the reunion so the kids went swimming. They had a blast jumping off the diving board. Our pool here is not deep enough for a dive so that was a treat for them. Even Little (4 year old) S jumped off the dive and went down the slides.

On the way home we stopped at a convenience store/gas station to fill up and so the boys could use the restroom (not a chance in h*!! I would go in there).

When the boys came out, Tween said: "Mom, do you know what they sold in there?"
Not having a clue as to what could possibly be sold in a convenience store I said: "No, what?"
Tween says: "Condoms! In the bathroom. Can you believe it?"
My first response was: "How do you know what a condom is?" as everyone else in the car laughed.
Then Little S says "They sell gumdrops in the bathroom?"
Belly Laugh
So glad he thought that was what Tween said, certainly don't want him saying that word in church tomorrow.

Needless to say we are now home safe and sound and exhausted.

I will have to put Indiana Jones on my "to watch" list. I'm more of a rental person than a movie theater person. Mabye I'll watch some of the old ones to warm up.
