morning Aric, Ashlyn, and I took my car in for an oil change at Ed's
shop. With all the trips up to NorCal, I've already put 7,500 miles
on my car! =O
While Aric changed the oil and filter, Ed and I played with Ashlyn
and tried to keep her busy. She kept wanting to stick her hand in
the drip bucket and touch all sorts of dirty stuff in the garage.
Aric and I bought some groceries and headed home. Brian, Grace, and
Brandon came down around 2pm. The fellas watched the kiddies while
Grace and I prepped food for tonight's BBQ.
By 5pm, we all headed over to Ed and Sue's. We secretly planned an
early birthday celebration for Ed's birthday (in the guise of a Memorial
Day Weekend BBQ). A small group of friends gathered and pigged out
on BBQ pork ribs, grilled steaks, tossed salad, baked
potatoes (with all the fixins), shrimp cocktail, BBQ corn on the cob,
fresh fruit, chips-n-dip, and yummy birthday cake.
was such a fun evening! Ashlyn had a really good time too, and fell
fast asleep before we left. I think Aric and I got home around midnight.
*YAWN!* I'm tired.
