21 years :o)

Tomorrow is our 21st wedding anniversary, but we celebrated early by going to see Jim Gaffigan in Rapid City, SD, with my sister and her husband. This is something we wouldn't have splurged on if we'd know about the adoption at the time we bought the tickets (before Christmas), but it sure was wonderful to get away! We left yesterday morning and spent some time eating and shopping (ok, well, a LOT of time eating!) before the performance. (Concert? What do you call a comedian's performance, anyway?) We had yummy tofu pad thai and tofu curry for lunch, and for dinner we had some awesome vegan pizza on whole wheat crust at Beau Jo's. So we were stuffed and practically sick when we got to the concert/performance/whatever it's called, and then we laughed so hard our faces and stomachs ached. Jim Gaffigan did mostly new material, with a little "hot pocket" as an encore at the end. He was hilarious, as always, and even the guy that opened for him was funny.

This morning we got up early and headed back home because Curtis had to be at work at 1:00 We ended up adding 40 minutes to our trip because we missed a turn-off and had to double back. Thankfully my mom was able to go pick Beck up from kindergarten for us and keep him until we got home. We arrived to a relatively clean house with the laundry nearly done, and that was awesome. :o) Joshua stayed with the kids yesterday and last night and got everyone to school this morning, and Zoe shuttled kids to activities and concerts and did laundry. They did a great job. Joshua is back at the dorms now, recovering from his night of parent duty, I'm sure. ;o)
