Just wanted to let everyone know that I am back from my trip to San Francisco. I went last weekend to see my good buddy Mike get married.
I don't have all of the pictures yet, so later I will post them and make a more detailed post about the trip.

I had a very relaxing day yesterday. I would say "we", but Christian got in a cleaning frenzy, and Neo and I knew better than to get in her way! She got a ton done. Neo and I relaxed and played some XBOX while it was raining outside. Then we BBQ'd, watched a movie, and then went to bed.
Today, however, we got out in the yard. We cut the grass, which was pretty high. Also, we spread some granules for ants and sprayed the yard. We got quite a bit done, but I think I did a little too much, got a little too hot, smelled too much bug spray, and didn't have enough breakfast, because afterwards, I was pretty sick. I'm still recovering. Now, it is down to a bad headache and some nausea.
The best part of the weekend was the BBQ we had on Saturday. We decided to try BBQ'ing some shrimp. Christian stuffed each jumbo shrimp with some cheese and then wrapped it in bacon. We grilled those on the pit while basting it with a butter-garlic sauce. We also grilled hamburgers, hot-dogs, sausage, and corn. Christian made garlic toast and rice dressing inside. We have so much food leftover! We served the shrimp with some more butter-garlic sauce to dip in, and they were delicious.

My boy is off to school! The bus just picked him up. Mom managed to hold back the tears until she got back in the house :) Pics are here. Mom's thoughts about it are over here. :)

What a nice relaxing weekend. We stayed with Emily and a friend on Tiki Island. Neo and Kam had a blast. We relaxed at the house and also went to the beach. We got to fish a little bit, but the boys didn't seem that interested.
Thanks to Emily and Anne for inviting us. We all had a great time. It was good to see the boys get to be together and play.
All of the pictures from the weekend are here.
