Weekend of Thrills

Hello precious blogosphere,

I don't have lovely images to show the fun that was this weekend - but I do have some kind words for all involved!

First, it was to be Cara's final birthday hurrah. We were going to dinner with her parents and her sister, Tricia. We went out to Johnny's Italian something... and it was great. Good food - good drinks... ok service... but it was great. As we were leaving, Bob (Cara's father) said he needed to take something upstairs, to the room we are renting for the wedding, for Cara's birthday. I carried his box o' goodies up to the room without thinking anything of it.

And of course... it was a surprise Wedding Shower.


The family!!! The friends!!! The people who traveled far!!! The people who put so much work into making it all look so nice!!! The people who got the games organized!! The cake!! The gifts!!!


It was a blast. Thank you to everyone who was involved in the planning and execution. I was surprised - and that is a true feat!

So - to top that - this weekend had Drake winning the Missouri Valley Conference tournament (and the final game by 30 points!??!) - the stuffing of the wedding invitations... and tons of fun with family and friends.

Twas a good one.

It was fun wasn't it.

As much fun that can be had with my pants still on...


yeah - that works.

Sounds like a good time. And I'm glad Jed kept his trousers on.

I actually watched the Drake game and cheered for them. The run at the end of the first half was quite impressive and I hope they do at least a little damage in the tournament.

Damfino said...

Wow Alex - that impresses the hell out of me.

Keep cheering for those Bulldogs!!

Kern said...

Will do. It might surprise you to know that though I don't normally follow college "hoops" as they say, I always fill out a bracket and watch the tournament whether I'm in an office pool or not. It makes the whole thing much more interesting.

Then again, I do brackets for all the Grand Slams in tennis as well, so maybe that just means I'm a big nerd.

Well, we knew that already.

Carry on!
