ANNIVERSARY to Edna and Greg!
HAPPY FRIENDSHIP DAY!
This weekend has been pretty eventful. Yesterday Aric and I met up with
one of Aric's old high school buddies for lunch. After running a bunch
of errands in Costa Mesa/Newport area, Aric spent the afternoon washing
both cars while I watched Ashlyn and finished working on my little project.
Aric, Ashlyn, and I went to IKEA to find Ashlyn a "big-girl"
bed. I knew she was ready the minute I caught her attempting to climb
out of her crib two weeks ago. Very dangerous!
We found one to our liking (The Brekke Bed). It's a full size twin with three handy drawers for storage. It's perfect...good size and quality for an incredible price! Although I'm sure the cost of a good mattress is easily double the price of the bed. *sigh*
Tonight we went to Taylor's 1st Birthday Bash at Il Fornaio in Irvine. I can't believe she's turning one already!!! =O James and Grace reserved a private room and invited about 60+ people for a evening of good food and festivities. James and Grace never ceases to amaze me with their generosity. All the guests took home more than they arrived with...plenty of food, duk, fruit, gifts, balloons, and favors for the kiddies.
It was so nice to see Brian, Grace, and lil' Brandon. It's been a long time since we last seen them. Lil' Brandon is not so little anymore. At 7 months, he's the same size as Taylor!
After dinner, we went over to James and Grace's for gift opening. We stayed till after midnight. *YAWN!* Pooped!
What a nice weekend! Hope you had a good one, too!
