What a fun, busy weekend we had! I still haven't caught up on my sleep.
Friday was Grandpa Lanz's birthday, so we celebrated with dinner on Saturday night. Unfortunately there were also a bunch of nasty storms blowing through, which meant that Joe and Kathy got stuck in the cities for a while. They finally made it to the party, but dinner was pretty late. Good thing I wasn't too hungry - we'd come from a graduation party where there was a great taco bar and yummy cake! Michael and I were busy watching tv and playing, so we didn't even mind the wait. The best part of dinner was the presents (Uncle Joe got Transformers wrapping paper) and ice cream cake! By the time we got home to bed, it was late and we had to wake up early to head to the cities.
Sunday morning we went to visit Mommy's college friends and all their kids. At first I felt a little shy. Xander took my hand right away to show me Linda's big dogs, but I wasn't ready for that. Daddy went to the car to get my dog, George. It made me feel much better to have my familiar friend with me. We stayed there for lunch and more playing before the little kids needed naps. I skipped my nap and instead went to visit some family, since we were in the neighborhood. It was a beautiful day, so we had a nice dinner in the sunshine and played outside for a long time.
By the end of the weekend everyone was overtired and Mommy and Daddy had a frustrating time trying to get me and Eliana to sleep at night. For the last two days, Ellie has really been catching up on her sleep... but me? I've been fighting my naps, staying awake at night, and asking to get up early in the morning. Somebody's got to keep Mommy and Daddy on their toes.
