Yes it looks like they're having a great time. I think the hardest part of them being gone is that I can't talk to them. If I could hear their stories each day, it would be easier. But I know they're having a great time and I'll have plenty of time to hear all of the stories when they come home on Friday. These are life experiences that they'll never forget. I'm so glad that Ali decided to go with Nikki this year.
So what did we do this weekend? Stephen had water polo games at Servite on Thursday, and then a tournament in Corona Friday thru Sunday. They took 5th place in the tournament and qualified for USCC, which was great. Didn't get much running in over the weekend. I did get four days in this week, so I guess that's fine. Although I only got in 18 miles. I'm trying to keep my minimum at 20, but what can I do? Bill joined me for a run in Corona. I'd done Map My Run and found a great 4.25 mile route from the high school Stephen was playing at. That was Bill's longest run and he did great! It's fun to have him to run with. I enjoy running alone, but it's nice knowing he's right there too.
Last night after Stephen's second game we met The Filpi's for dinner at Gyu-Kaku. It's a Japanese BBQ place where they bring the food to you raw and you have your own grill at each table. You grill the food to your liking and eat it as it finishes. We'd been before and really like it. From there we went to the movies to see Bad Teacher.
It was pretty funny, although I felt like we'd seen most of the funny parts in trailers. Then because it was only 7:45 we decided we needed dessert. We decided to find someplace we could get a drink and dessert. So we headed over to The Heights. We were looking for the drink because we'd talked several times about Buttery Nipples and how delicious they are.
I'm always up for something new so this was what we were after. They were so good, we ended up ordering a second round! I could drink full glasses of that stuff! We had an early morning of water polo on Sunday so after that, we called it a night and headed home.
Today we went for bagels before heading out to polo. As we were eating, in walked The Filpi's! Too funny! After Stephen's first game, one of his teammates invited us back to their house since they lived nearby. So we headed over and had a delicious barbeque. We hung out there for a few hours, eating and visiting before heading back for the second game. My parents had come to both games, so we invited them to join us back at our house for dinner. I'd planned to make shrimp tacos and with the girls gone, I knew we'd have enough. It was a nice ending to a busy but fun weekend. I'll be counting down the days until the girls come home on Friday.
