I have always admired the way my sister-in-law Lena lives life to the fullest, and sometimes on the fly (something I don't do very well). So when that spontaneity worked in my favor (in the form of a visit) I was so excited!! But since there isn't a whole lot of, well, excitement to be had in Spokane in November, we made some of our own. With a little help from my friends. Here are some of the highlights:
On Thursday evening, I took Lena to my spin class. However, it was far from normal. Our instructor Melanie had decided to make that night an 80's theme night with music and outfits and everything. So Lena brought some of her gear and we spun out to old 80's tunes. Too bad the photo cut off my totally rad legwarmers...
Then on Saturday (between swimming lessons and book group) we went to New Moon with a group of my girlfriends. We figured that between the six of us we had 17 children. In other words, we're a little tiny bit old to be obsessing about vampires and werewolves. But we didn't look nearly as silly as the random row of guys sitting behind us. And as for the movie...I've always been firmly planted in camp Edward, but after New Moon? Let's just say the match is tied.
Thanks so much for the fun visit, Lena and baby Cora, and for all your help. We love you!!
