Extended Weekend

We’ve been enjoying our extended weekend.

On Friday night Jantina and I joined Rob and Sarah and several friends for a cookout at their place. There was a good turnout, about 15 or so folks. We each brought a dish, and relaxed in the back yard enjoying the weather as we ate. We had a great time meeting new friends and visiting. We are looking forward to the next get-together!

Our air-conditioning at home has been out for a week now. We’ve been spending more time in our basement as the repair men keep guessing what the problem could be. The current theory is that the internal coil needs to be replaced. So, I moved the PS3 and TV from my office downstairs so now we’re able to stream Hulu, Netflix, and watch DVDs that way (and it gives me an excuse to play my oft-neglected PS3 games).

Sunday after church we had  lunch at mom & dad’s with the family, then Jantina and I went to Bloomington for a date. We first stopped by World Gourmet to pick up a few things, and while we were there I picked up a dark chocolate bar with almonds and sea salt and Jantina bought an orange passion fruit drink. She didn’t care much for her drink, but the chocolate was awesome! I was surprised when I realized that I had finished the whole thing while watching the movie… we went to the Palace to see Prince of Persia. So many scenes were lifted straight from the video games, and it totally worked! It was fun, I’d recommend seeing it. After the movie we tried a new place for dinner, Baxter’s American Grille. The service was “meh”, but the food was pretty good, we’ll try it again for sure.

Now we are looking forward to having Monday off. I probably stay up late tonight playing games and tomorrow we are heading over to mom & dad’s for a cookout with the family!

    Yay for new friends and a great weekend! I thought of you guys when we were playing Dominion yesterday afternoon. And Jim and I are planning a celebration date night when he gets his first paycheck from the new position – I think Prince Of Persia is going to be the movie we choose 🙂

    Prince of Persia is a great summer action movie, we both really enjoyed it. I don’t know if our prior knowledge of the game made us enjoy it more than the average bear or not.

    Dominion is a lot of fun! Glad to hear you picked it up, I forgot that I had mentioned it to you! It is one of my favorites 🙂
