The Weekend

Our weekend was definitely fun-filled. Friday night was quiet...we were so tired from moving and unpacking. We went to dinner and came home to chill on the couch.
Saturday, it was raining, but we got had quite a few "bright spots".
Alexandra's birthday party was on Saturday and we tuned in via Playstation Eye. Its like a webcam, but it works with the Playstation 3 and the TV. We loved being able to "attend" the party. We got to see my parents and Jane, Elizabeth's parents, and many other friends. Not to mention, Matt, Elizabeth, and the guest of honor...Alexandra! She was so cute!!! She was happy to see us...she showed us all of her presents when she opened them by holding them up to the TV. How sweet.
After our virtual visit with them, we tuned into see Jason's brothers and parents! So, it was a great day for seeing all of our family. The only things missing were real hugs and kisses.
When we were finished with that, we decided to venture out in the rain.
I carried an umbrella and Jason had a poncho. We made the trek to Waikiki and went to one of our favorite bars, RumFire. They have a great happy hour with live music from 5-7 PM. We slowly made our way back to the condo and had a good night's rest.
Sunday was spent lounging around for the most part. We went to Hard Rock Cafe for lunch. Its really close by...After 22 years, they are actually closing Hard Rock Honolulu in the fall and opening a new location in Waikiki. Then it will be Hard Rock Waikiki.
Our waitor asked where we were from...we said KY...he said well you "sound like home". He is from Lewisburg, WV. He is a young guy....moved here right out of high school, six years ago.
Nice too.
After that, we came home and watched a Netflix. Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist. Cute movie.
So, things here are going well and we are all settled in-again.
We really miss everyone are all welcome to visit anytime! Just let us know.

I'm glad you all are getting settled in...again. I love that you have already started establishing your "favorite restaurants"!! :) I can't believe Alexandra is getting so big. I'm sure Matt and Elizabeth are clinging to every passing day. I'm sure you have everything you need but if you are missing something KY-specific, let me know and we'll get it to you. Unfortunately hugs and kisses don't ship well. :( But I MISS YOU!!! xoxo!! How was that?
Ciao, darling.
