Although the food was great the fellowship was even better and everyone had fun catching up and chatting until late.
Before the party got started Mikes wife Denise and I put our little guys to bed. Luckily they had a pack and play crib for Anders to sleep in and he doesn't mind sleeping in those too much. Later in the evening I went up to check on him and he was wide awake but happy. It turned out that he had climbed in and out of the crib and had been wandering around the room.... luckily he didn't get into to much trouble but that was the signal that we needed to start making moves toward leaving.
So we just pulled in about a half an hour ago and Anders is tucked in and quiet. Chris and I have decided that when we do go out to eat again (sometime in the future) we'll be going to our friend Johns for some more yummy empanadas!
