Friday I had the joyous pleasure of a date with The Cuban Cowboy (that stud). We finally saw The Desolation of Smaug. Although it is disappointing that Jackson shifted the plot line so dramatically, it is a good film.
Saturday we had some business to attend to with our truck (The Green Machine). We have been battling with it's issues since the fall, but there may be a light in sight.
Since we were out and about, we first stopped by my parents. The boys hung out with my brother: playing with RC cars, fixing dirt bikes, and playing in the dirt.

After, we ran by the in-laws to wash up for dinner. Then we went to Cheesecske Factory: nom nom nom. The boys were great. The food was Delish, with plenty to spare for Sunday lunch.
Oh, yes, and I almost forgot. While at my parents house, my mom unloaded a hoard of my old school work. A family history of our Minnesotan/ Finnish ancestry. And, most importantly, some vintage goodies that belonged to get and my grandma Kumpula.
It was a wonderful past two days. Praise be to God, oh and the babysitters he places in our lives!
