A Celebrity Somewhere
We arrived on Friday evening at the Cain's house. We met up with Jay (one of Dave's good friends from the 'Ville) and his new fiance, Kim. We ate pizza and hung out with the Cain family and the happy new couple to catch up on old times. I used to babysit for Maddie and Patrick and now Maddie is such a big girl she could probably babysit for Isla.
After leaving the Cains, we picked up Megan from the train station. We were so late that the station attendant asked her if she needed a ride (sorry Megan). We returned to the DeKorne's and had some extremely tasty guacamole thanks to Mark's excellent culinary skills and fine chopping. Heidi made some french toast for breakfast the next morning which the ladies enjoyed while the boys golfed. Dana, Matt and Brooke came over to enjoy some fishing and partake in some Honey Baked Ham.
We met the Riebel boys for lunch on Sunday. Austin had the three boys while Amy was out of town, such a good daddy. I have to say it was pretty remarkable that we went to a restaurant with 6 children and we didn't really scare anyone away. After lunch, we headed to the Goads so they could meet Isla. Their two babies, Jack and Ellie, are super cute, but I guess they're not really babies anymore. Time flies!
After enjoying a relaxing kayak trip on the river, we ate some Jack's pizza, watched Confessions of a Shopaholic, posted a Craigslist ad for a magical Seadoo with invisible dolphins, watched some YouTube and hit the sack. Dave took Megan to her train at 5:30 a.m. on Monday morning (kudos to both of them for dragging themselves out of bed.) The Borowicz crew headed back to the East side later that morning to get back to reality. Our celebrity status was good while it lasted. Many thanks to all our adoring fans.
