But hey, the weekend was awesome. Went out Friday night to celebrate the Boy's birthday. Eight of us went down to Rockville to a Brazillian Barbeque place, where we consumed many meats. Then we went down the road to the Dave & Buster's, where the guys shot at things and Lacey and I played Skeeball. We used our ticket winnings (and those of a few people who didn't want to cash theirs in) to get some truly amazing presents for Sharif. There was a small stuffed Care Bear, a basketball hoop hat, a headband with a light-up propeller, and some shot glasses. Wealth indeed.
Saturday was puppy day! And, guys, OH MY GOD. Hans is the cutest puppy. All he wants to do is alternate between sitting in your lap and licking your face. And if your face is not close enough when he wants to start licking it, he will jump and jump until he reaches it. There is photographic evidence, and a couple of short videos, but the camera battery ran low, so it's charging right now. This evening I'll be able to show off. I love the puppy.
Then Saturday night meant the show at the New Deal with Acacia Sears, Keegan Corbey, and Ash & Seeno- that was as great as I was expecting. It was a lovely night, music-wise and weather-wise.
Yesterday, Sharif and I started off slow, but eventually we took our bikes over to Patapsco State Park. We probably only rode about 6 miles total on a very gentle trail. And we stopped a couple of times to wade in the river and enjoy the truly amazing outside. Our one regret was that we were not properly dressed for swimming, as we both really wanted to sit down in the water, but we did not want to face biking back to the car in wet clothes. Next time, we'll know.
