Fun and Food-that's what we do here.

This week has been fun and not fun.  Tony has been down with Strep.  Ew.  
That's been the not so fun part.
Since he's been home, we've had the car more than usual, which has been fun.

On Wednesday, we had preschool where we did a little nature scavenger hunt.  One of the items on the list was an acorn.  Lucy said to me, "We need to find an acorn, so we'll need to look for an Oak tree."  I was a bit flabbergasted.  I'm not sure I remembered that acorns come from Oaks.

After preschool we went to a little commercial audition for a local business.  It was fun, Lucy did great, but I'll be really surprised if they call.  After, we went to Lucy's favorite place, Panera, and took our lunch to the park to enjoy.

Some other fun stuff we've done this week:
Blew bubbles with a friend
Had lunch with friends
Played with cousins
Book club (Wednesday Wars-2 thumbs up)
Passed the glucose test! Hooray.  I was worried about this one.
Found some good deals at garage sales
Had dinner with some wonderful life-long friends
Went geocaching
Finished a really good book (A Proper Pursuit)
Regional Conference

Now for the food part.  For dinner tonight I tried Mel's BBQ Chicken Braid.  It turned out really good.  I made coleslaw to go with it and that was even better on top of the braid.  Yum.  I think we'll do this for our next picnic meal.  Now because I'm the only one eating around here there is a lot left over.  I should note that I used my own French bread recipe and I used Vidalia onions instead of red, I don't care for the pungency of the red.  Wish you were here for leftovers.

Hope Tony is feeling better! I'm glad you were able to do so many fun things, and I'm especially glad you passed the glucose test! Your dinner looks fabulous!
