A Good Weekend

I always look forward to the weekend.  On Friday night we went to Twin Falls to watch our two sons, Joe and Carl, compete in "Battle of The Bands," put on by an area church.  It was fun watching them perform making this mother proud.  Joe handles the crowd so well and I love hearing him sing.  Carl plays the electric guitar and keyboard and does a great job.  It was 2 hours there so Alex got to get in some more driving practice, he's almost ready for his license.
On Sunday, our six unmarried children took Chuck and I out for dinner for a Mother's Day celebration. Normally, on a holiday, the kids all come over and we have dinner, but on Mother's Day it's a time for Mom to be pampered.   We went out to the "Cheesecake Factory," and had a nice dinner together.  Their lettuce wraps are so good and of course their cheesecakes are wonderful.  It was also a chance to say goodbye to Katey, our 25 year old, who is headed to Romania on Tuesday.  She and our 28 year old son, David are going with other members of their church for a mission's trip and will be gone for 10 days.  I'll be praying!

What a wonderful day you had. Oh man, The Cheesecake Factory. An almost heaven on earth place and I've only been there once. When we went to TX to Juli's for Christmas. Too bad I was in the beginning of a stomach virus the day we went but from what I did eat it was great.

Romania? That's awesome. I'll be praying for safety and success.
