Yesterday my phone rang and it was a friend of mine from up north. She was calling to tell me that she, her husband and their two very cute boys were traveling through our little town and they wanted to meet up! I had not seen her in 4 years!!!! It was great! We took all the kids to this big indoor play area and then to the army base and lunch at a playland! It was tons of fun and so nice to catch up with her and hear about the lives of some friends still living there.
Tonight we let the girls play outside and we enjoyed our quiet little street. Then we ate some bread and soup. We found out we have a small grocery store here and set out to find it. Amazingly, it was another great surprise. It is very small, but their prices were extremely competitive! They had a GREAT sale on meat and we stocked up! Now the girls are in bed and we are ready to enjoy our four day weekend.
