Good Food and Great Friends

Saturday night we went out to dinner with 5 other couples to celebrate two of our friends' birthdays, Jeni and Christie. We decided to try the Country Club because they recently hired a new chef. The food was wonderful! My steak was perfect! Jeni had the duck special. I had never had duck before and, I have to say, it was quite tasty. We had such a enjoyable evening. I love long, leisurely dinner with good food and friends (and no children to keep entertained).

After dinner, two of the couples came back to our house for a bit. One of the couples is thinking about putting in a home movie theater similar to ours, so they wanted to check it out. We then decided to play the Wii. If you have not yet played the Wii, you are missing out. It is a blast!! It kept a bunch of 30 year olds entertained for quite awhile.

Jim and I finally bite the bullet and bought the elliptical machine we have been wanting. We are so glad we did. I haven't been able to use it yet, but Jim really likes it. It is super smooth and very quiet. I can't wait to start using it. Maybe in a couple of weeks.

Hope everyone has a nice Sunday! Nice April Fool's Jenny!

Blogger finally let me post my pictures, but I had to do them one or two at a time. So painful!

Sounds so yummy and fun!

The Wii looks like such a good time too. I can see myself cruising on the ellipse while the kids play the Wii in our home theater. Did you say you had a guest room?

I love long evenings like that. How funny about the Wii. I haven't ever seen a "real" one. Good thing Jim isn't around he may get Doug addicted to a new toy.

Wasn't that the best joke ever??!

p.s. this is (me) not Taylor

Sounds like great fun with your friends!! We have an elliptical machine that we like. Although since the weather has turned decent outside it does not get as much use! :)

But I love it, especially in the winter or when I'm stuck home with the kids I can jump on while they are napping or whatever!

I've heard about the Wii. We are not gamers here although with three boys I see it in our future (ugh). But anything that gets adults up and laughing I usually enjoy:)

Cute pictures. You are beautiful. And I'm jealous of the elliptical machine too. I would love one or a treadmill because it is so hard to get anywhere with young kids. I hope it helps you heal.
