We had a good trip here and really enjoyed camping along the way. We miss our little pop-up camper during the winter months! And we had a wonderful dinner Saturday night with some good friends in Arkansas - friends that we met through this blog! Their 17-year old daughter has CFS and is actually doing very well these days. It was great to see them, and I discovered a new treat: fried pickles (really!) - yum.
Not much time for movies last week since we were busy preparing for our journey. The kids were home sick (Craig for two days and Jamie all week), so they watched some movies during the day, but I was so busy I don't even remember what they watched. So, just one movie to report on:
- Last night, we watched The Tourist with my father-in-law. I'd heard mixed reviews of this recent thriller starring Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp, but we all enjoyed it. The scenery in Venice was stunning, there was plenty of humor in it, and though it seemed predictable at first, it had a few tricks up its sleeve that surprised us. All in all, a fun movie.
