I had a nice Mother’s Day weekend with both David and Austin this past weekend. Their dad was nice enough to let me have them for the weekend, and we got to go eat at the Cheesecake Factory – a favorite for all of us. The weekend was cut a little short since we had to drop Austin off before we drove to Pittsburgh, but I really appreciated the extra time with them.
We found a new place to eat in Pittsburgh today. It’s a bakery, but they have some organic offerings. The chef/owner took a few minutes to talk with David about the culinary field. It was really nice of him to do that, and we would have talked to him much longer if not for David’s appointment.
Thanks to all of you who are praying for David. At the hospital today, he was full of laughs and smiles – a pretty odd thing when they are about to stick you with needles. He seems to be very aware – as are we – that we are living some blessed days.
We are driving back from Pittsburgh as I type, and all is well. David got the vaccine a little later in the day than normal, so that put us leaving much later than we normally do, but other than that, everything went smoothly. We drive through Berkeley Springs, WV as we travel, and it is a very scenic drive this time of year. Everything was lush and green and we enjoyed seeing all the new leaves.
We will get to have David and Austin with us this coming weekend, too. David will be attending Prom #3 with our Kansas neighbor, Mayumi. She is flying here with her Mom on Friday, and we are very excited to see them. David has been planning the meal he wants to make them for days. He’s also got a list of restaurants to take them to while they are here. It will be a busy weekend, but lots of fun!
