This weekend was Easter break and so my brother (just Shannon, Chris couldn't make it) and my sisters came to town! Last night we got a Caramel Java Chiller from Sonic, a Caramel Frappucino from Starbucks, and a Caramel Moolatte from The Queen to compare who had the best blended coffee drink. It was a close race between Starbucks and Sonic for some, but we agreed Sonic is better if one is in a milkshake sort of mood, whereas Starbucks is better for a coffee drink. We also agreed that the Moolatte from Dairy Queen came in last. It wasn't bad,
it just wasn't as good. Mmm, quite a tasty experiment...
As we were sampling the drinks we played poker (mommy did too).
That night Shannon and I watched a show about Cuttlefish. I would pee my pants if I saw one while swimming in the ocean, but as I was safe in my bedroom, I found them to be really neat animals. They change colors, which puts them way ahead of any other fish in my book.
Today (Easter) the whole darn family came over for lunch. There was a TON of food, as you can clearly see. My mom rocked the Easter lunch, no question.
The preacher and his wife also came over...I like him mostly because he's such a great sport. For example:
After lunch we had an easter egg hunt!
It was terribly cold outstide, so eventually after our guests left Andy joined us (The madre, me, Shannon, Nicole, and Jenette) at Lone Star for a farewell dinner for the Manhattaniers. In the later evening Nathan and I watched Annapolis,
which was fair.
In conclusion, it was a very pleasant weekend followed up by a very unpleasant bug I caught from Netter. Atleast I don't have school tomorrow :)
