a couple of sweeties

day one with two of my very favorite sweeties, robot and pink (or should i unmask them, too? oh, okay: they are really jonah and oona, my bruddie's kids). mom and dad picked them up in vermont, where they were spending a couple of days with their other grandmother, and mark, isaac, and i met them in portsmouth for a sweetie hand-off at the friendly toast.

we ate some delicious cheesy fries and other treats, but jeeze their prices have gotten so high. granted, their portions are humongous, but still. i'm becoming more of a silly's fan all the time.

jonah and oona said their goodbyes to mana, pop, and lulu, and then we drove (via a very long, scenic coastal route) home to portland.

mark and oona made a perfect fire in the fire pit.

 yay, lighting things on fire!

all day today it's either been rainy or that strange hot-cold-humid that makes you want to go see a movie. i took the sweeties to see toy story three, which was awesome. it was really really funny, until the end when it was incredibly sad. i can't remember the last time i didn't cry at a pixar movie (oona kept me company and cried a little too).

 tomorrow, i'm hoping for a little sun, so we can take long walks and maybe take a picnic to the beach!

A. The Friendly Toast is SO expensive. Like maddeningly so. But then I think Silly's is too expensive, too!

B. I cried like a BABY at TS3. Seriously.

C. When are we going to be invited to one of these bonfires?

some things at silly's are expensive, but at least you can eat for about ten bucks (or in some cases, i.e. vegan chili, even less). the appetizer size of onion rings at friendly toast is ten frigging dollars!

well, how about dinner and a bonfire one of these nights?

Thanks for posting pictures of the sweeties!!! I wish we were there with you guys. :-(

Thanks for taking care of them!

Liz Woodbury said...

i wish you were here, too, adam! but it's always fun to have the sweeties.

Melissa Crowe said...

Yes to dinner and bonfire.

You're not alone, I cry at all the Pixar movies. We saw Toy Story 3 in 3D, and I was kind of glad for the glasses... It made it easier to hide the fact that I was crying from my friends' boyfriends.

that's a brilliant strategy, michaela. i'm going to start wearing 3d glasses to every movie!
