Lovely Weekend

Yes, I know the week is half over, but I did have a lovely weekend visiting my friends in Ohio.  My good bud Jen lives in Cincinnati with her hubby & cutie pie daughter Sophie.  I can't decide if Soph is more of a spitting image of her mom or her dad.  Jen and I visited the new IKEA store in their area, and it was a first IKEA experience for me.  Gotta say, I think I'm hooked!  Lots of really neat storage ideas and simple furnishings.  Loads of neat kid stuff.  Gotta go back, but I think the closest IKEA to us is on the way to DC.  It was great just having time to lunch with Jen, sit and catch up, and not worry about where our kids were (both were home with their Daddies!).  We both really appreciate the gift our hubbies gave us...time to spend with our girlfriend, child-free.  While in Cinci, Jen & Sophie took me to the local nature center.  What a cool place!  We looked at gigantic frogs in a pond, geese, ducks, birds, squirrels & old cabins.  Very nice walking trails with an abundance of spring flowers making their appearance.  It was a nice way to spend the morning.  Chadman shared some Mac tips with me, and I'm quite grateful for the new knowledge...Chad is the master of all things Mac!  

Thanks, Jen, Chad & Sophie for a great weekend, and thanks to Keith for helping it happen as well!
