Weekend visitors

We had several visitors this weekend. First, Jane's niece and her boyfriend came for the weekend. She is her niece, but they are both actually just a little younger than us. She's always thought Fort Wayne sounded like fun, so they drove out Friday and left Sunday after lunch. We had a good time.

Friday night we went out to eat and then just hung around the house. Saturday we watched the grankids at soccer practice in the morning, then we went to The Deck for lunch, then we went to the Urban Hippy so the ladies could shop (and the guys drank beer in their lounge area), we followed that up with a Sundae at DeBrands in the new Ash Building. It was then time for us all to take an afternoon nap. Saturday evening we went to our usual spot - Rock the Plaza at the library. We hung out there for awhile - with a brief visit from Carrie and Caleb. Sunday morning Jane and I went to church, then the Feipels came over for lunch and we all ate. Then Allison and Greg went home.

Hopefully they had a nice too. For some odd reason people think that we're always doing exciting things. We are not. Sure, we go places, but most of the time we just go and sit. We rarely talk to anyone, or know anyone. We're both classic introverts in that we kind of like to be in the middle of a crowd, but not necessarily have to interact with anyone and certainly don't want to be the center of attention. Mostly we like listening to music, being with each other, and people-watching. Anyway, we had a good time.

The other visitor was a surprise visit by the boy. Son Isaac decided at the last minute to drive up from Atlanta for his 10-year high school class reunion. Actually, he just drove to Louisville and then rode with a couple former classmates the rest of the way. The class reunion was Saturday night at the downtown Marriott (I think), and they spent the night at the LaSalle Street Inn downtown. He was dropped off at our house around noon Sunday and spent the day with us. Jane took him to Zanesville this morning to pick up his ride back to Louisville then. It was a brief visit, and, again, we didn't do much, but it was nice to get to see him for the 3rd time this summer. We spent most of Sunday watching the Olympics and then Sunday night we watched the 4th Bourne movie (so Jane and I can now go see the new one).

So, all in all it was a good weekend. Nothing spectacular, but good nonetheless. The only bad thing, which we didn't realize until everyone left, is that we didn't take pictures of anyone. Oh well. Such is life.
