The weekend

What a weekend! Buddies drove down from Rochester to spend the weekend with us, friends from Malaysia and Singapore. And as a surprise, George and family tagged along as a spur-of-the-moment trip and to surprise me (Kristin knew).
Sometimes, there's nothing like hanging out with good friends, people you can really let your hair down with. It's nice when your friends actually take the trouble to drive a few hours to visit you and your new home; says that they are keen and want to see how you are doing. We haven't had too many of our good friends visit, so this was a wonderful surprise.
And it was a bonus that these people were excellent cooks, and drove down with their marinated chicken and beef satay!
We had a few fun games of badminton, and a nice campfire out back.
And, as always when we get together, I'm stuffed.

In the evening, we made a visit to the nearby lake to soak in the festivities; every Sunday they have a free outdoor concert. Chloe enjoyed the trip as much as we did!

It's always a good feeling to hang out with our family or close friends. It helps us to unwind and relax. The best part is you don't need to "pretend" to be nice.
