Yep, longevity runs in Sara's family. Naughtiness runs in mine....I hope Sara can stand it for another 50 years!
The Birthday beach weekend played out nicely...We left Friday after work to head south on the train. Sara's pop was waiting at the station when we arrived. We hit the hay at the folks' then left, en masse, the following morning to the coast.
The parents had rented a nice beach house with a view of the ocean. Our time was spent reading, relaxing, eating, playing games and generally enjoying each others company. All the photos to peruse are here.
Sara and I were responsible for making sure Ms. Molly, Grandma's faithful companion, got out regularly. We took our job seriously, as did Molly, she only had to remind us once or twice to pay a little better attention to her. On the beach she was an astute observer.... she chased and nearly caught a piece of seaweed that blew in the wind...if only Sara had been a little faster!
After two nights at the beach, a lot of great food, we were dropped off at the train station for our trip back north.
The train ride was great... we had dinner, played 1.5 games of scrabble, watched two episodes of South Park and two episodes of This American Life on the iPod. (This sums up Sara and I well: South Park and This American Life...two shows we both feel are worth paying for...)
Now, its back to a short work week and more dance class tonight! We have been practicing... And, no, we weren't the best in the class. The best dancers were the straight couple who refused to rotate and were all barfy kissy-face all over each other the whole time. Gross.
Sara was the only female lead in our class. I felt sort of sorry for her until I had to dance with sweaty, drunk, or sweaty and drunk male leads without rhythm... Not surprisingly, all the girls love her.
