Saturday night, Sarah and I had an early Girls' Night Out and went to see Love & Friendship, the movie based on the Jane Austen story Lady Susan. We got an obscene-sized popcorn and soda because we are terrible liberals. Haha. Then we got home in time to put the kids to sleep while Kevin and Lukas went for drinks down the street. Woo! It's like having timeshare kids!
Sunday morning Lio tested out what it's like to be a kid in our home, which is a little different than being a kid at hers. There were tutus, tiaras, too much television, and many noise and light-emitting toys. Lukas quickly put the kibosh on the latter.
Tiara, tutu, and remote. She gets it.

Sunday night we planned to celebrate Memorial Day with a cookout. In addition to our red-headed visitors, we invited our friends Erika and Rob. We had burgers, hot dogs, snacks, a million beers, a little wine and lots of deep questions like, "what age are you inside your heart?" The kids took the opportunity of our divided attention to make a huge mess on the deck and in the yard.

Monday morning, Memorial Day we had a little more bonding time before Sarah, Lukas, and Lio headed back to Queens. We miss you guys!
