Busy Weekend

We've had a lot going on this weekend. Yesterday we had four families over for a barbecue dinner, it's nice to have the weather perfect for grilling. It poured early into mid-morning and we were worried that we'd have to move the cars out and grill in the garage. Luckily it dried up in time, and the little kids actually got to play outside. Before our guests started coming Bilal obliged me with a nice long nap (nearly 4 hours!), so I was able to tie up all loose ends in the kitchen without the little guy tugging at my shirt, begging to be picked up. I actually had to wake him up, thinking he'd never go to sleep at night!

Farah and Adeel dropped by on their way from South Carolina to Mobile, quite unexpectedly. They didn't get in until about 11:30 pm and left after lunch today, but it was still good to see them. Farah is moving this weekend, so her cat Janice was in the car. She wasn't very happy to be stopping over in a house with strange cat smells, and spent the night and morning hissing and growling at anyone who came near her, including Farah. It was a nightmare trying to get her back in her pet carrier to load her back in the car, but it was finally accomplished without casualties, except for poor Janice's bruised ego. Drive safely folks!

The kids are about to start working on this week's round of Iron Chef, so I'd better go help them out in the kitchen.
