I Met D at Poetic License!

Note: I totally stole your photos, D, because ours did not turn out well.

We have had crap weather this weekend, so on the spur of the moment we decided to find a SuperWalmart and take a drive. I know many people are anti-WalMart, but if no one else is going to sell the products I need, what to do?

In my usual last-minute, half-assed fashion I dropped D over at Poetic License an email telling her we'd be up in her neck of the woods. We picked this store specifically because we knew she lived there. I hoped she was free to meet for coffee, and hell yeah she was!

She has written an exceptionally kind post on her blog today about our meeting. Her hubbie was amazing with our kids. LittleBird and LittleMan were actually well-behaved for once, thank the rain gods. We had a really great time, and since the kids did not scare the bejeezus out of them, I do hope we can meet up again soon. It sounds like we may all have a date for Talk Like A Pirate day in September.

D, I know you guys have been going through some painful shit this weekend, and I really really appreciate that you took the time to meet with us. We had a great time. I will post a MIL Monday just for you!

Girl, your whole family ROCKS! Especially because you like hockey! We had such a great time, and what can I say? Mr. PL is just great with kids. He is just a big kid himself!

Somehow I didn't get Mr. NATUI in the photos. Next time we'll have to snap more shots to get the guys in on the action. Can't wait to see you again! Get well!

Hugs - D
