A relaxing weekend with the Rowsells

It’s been months since I strategically “forgot” the sticky date pudding in Colin’s freezer at his Dromana address.  And when Wong and I got the invite to spend the weekend with them to celebrate our birthday (since Colin and I are born in July), I knew I could use the excuse of consuming the dessert for another time… hehe

Anyway, it was great to catch up again with Chris and Colin.  It was also a bonus to spend a few hours of the cold winter night at Colin’s folks’ place as they have a good old fashioned fireplace.  I’ve always wanted one for my dream home, but Wong wants to be all modern and efficient, and go with a gas (fake) fireplace.  But once Col got the fire going and  the crackling of a real fire warmed us up, Wong was converted immediately :)

Fireplace

Nothing beats a real fireplace

Chess

It wasn't a game, it was a slaughter!

Colin broke out the chess board and we had a few games (Colin 1 – Glenn 0, Chris 0 – Glenn 1, Colin 1 – Wong 0)
It was a great night :)

This sleep over was different from last time… this time there was a plus 1 AKA James, King James that is (inside joke)

King James

King James is quite possibly one of the most happiest and well behaved babies I've ever seen!

By the end of the day, we had made another friend.  A stray Labrador came out of nowhere and decided we were nice people to be with.  He was right.  He was so well behaved, Wong and I considered stealing him… haha joking… maybe I’m joking…
He didn’t have a collar, and no one was looking for him.  Unfortunately we had to leave him behind.  We didn’t know his name so I named him Buddy :)

Buddy

Awwwww....
