We had a crazy whirl wind of a weekend full of family and fun, but Saturday was particularly a good time. Allow me to explain.

It was my day to sleep in and it was glorious. Dave and I trade weekend days because the pup needs to be let out far earlier than we would like to get out of bed.

Had some buttermilk on hand so I whipped up some buttermilk pancakes. Dave said they were delicious but I thought they were too buttery. I need to modify that recipe.

Our nephew Asher came over to hang out with us for a few hours. As soon as he stepped into the yard, Olive jumped up and licked his face which was extremely traumatic for the young lad who then wanted to be carried anytime he was around her.

We went to the park. The weather was perfect. The swings were inviting.

I made mac and cheese for lunch. It was not Kraft. It was real. It was good.

Goofiness ensued.

Asher's dad came to pick him up.

We went to Macy's. We bought a fun little appliance that I have dreamed about owning for a long time. Details to follow in a future post.

We came home to get ready for a big 30th birthday bash.

Olive lounged in the shade of the Indigo bush.

I took pictures of my new appliance. And hugged it. I may have kissed it too. I don't remember.

We went to said 30th birthday bash. It was for Dave's brother Matt. They had 30 different kinds of root beer set up at a tasting station. So clever. And fun!

We sampled root beer.

We ate cowboy caviar.

I met people who I went to college with but didn't know at the time.

Dave wanted to stay all night and play Lord of the Rings pinball, but we went home.

"`Cause Saturday night's the night I like
Saturday night's alright alright alright"

I love Elton John.
