Another great weekend draws to a close. I ended up working late Friday to finish my part of the grant. No worries because Jeff picked up Keegan, they went by the store to pickup dinner, grilled out and he was all ready for bed by the time I arrived home. Saturday we did errands including going by the bakery where we are getting our wedding cakes, Keegan had his first madeleine cookie and then we went to the jewelry store to order our wedding bands. After lunch and nap we met friends for a playdate and then dinner at a local cafe. Today we headed up north to hike the flume and then see the bears. Keegan did so well with the hiking I carried him back down on my shoulders. He slept all the way home. We stopped by the store and picked up a new lunchbox. He chose a rocketship shaped one. Then I dropped him off at Tom's. Jeff and I went out to dinner for the first time at this great local Mexican place. They also happened to have a jazz combo tonight too. And a really tasty margarita with Chambord in it. Now I am going to pack and head to bed early. I have to be at the airport at 5:30 to get through heightened security. I am off to MN for 3 days. Perhaps I will be lucky enough to see this crazy lady.
