Father's Day & Other Thoughts

Lorenzo pointed out I haven't blogged in a while. I reminded him that it's Lynn and Lorenzo's blog, but I still felt guilty, so here goes.

Yesterday was Father's Day. We had a fantastic meal with Dad Davis and Lorenzo as guests of honor. Judi and I worked hard in the kitchen to prepare a feast of Antipasto, Shrimp, Scallops on a bed of Spinach, Lemon Risotto and Roasted Vegetables. Dessert was a Cherry Pie.
I had more fun cooking than I have in a long time. There is something really fun preparing a meal for people you love.

Lately Alex has been extremely busy. The first week of summer he went to Rocket Camp where he built a telescope, a model of a MARS rover and a rocket. They launched the rocket on the last day. Last week, he was at Dinosaur camp where he learned about dinosaurs. This week his camp is called Adventures at the Pond. I suspect tadpoles will be involved.

Meghan has been attending Blue Ivey and is eagerly awaiting her 4th birthday. It's hard to believe she'll be 4 in less than two weeks! She has been showing me "My Little Pony" things she wants, while mentioning that she needs new puzzles and some princess stuff. As I fixed her hair this morning she mentioned that her hair bows were getting old, so I suspect that's on her list too.

Lorenzo is almost finished with a bout of night shift. I say bout, because it's much like a sickness and comes a few times a year. On Friday, he heads to Vegas for a Bachelor Party for the Putt wedding. He has been missing Trombone practice because of his night shift schedule and is looking forward to getting back to his horn.

Me? I have been traveling for work. I am heading to Mississippi today and was in Kansas last week. After the 4th, I am heading to Vermont for a conference. In addition, I have been taking golf lessons. What an expensive hobby!! I am really enjoying it and Alex wants to learn how to play. I had my first tournment last week and have a few more coming up. If nothing else, the fashion definitely agrees with me.

We have been busy, but happy. I hope this finds you the same way!
