Yesterday we drove Jaron home and spent the day hanging out with everyone at Mom and Dad's. We got there around 11:30 or so, had lunch then Tony, LaTisha and I went to the store to look for Easter stuff...we didn't really NEED to, but we did any ways. Then we met Mom, Dad and the 3 kids at the movie theater to see Horton Hears a Who...it was pretty lame. The trailer looked really cute, but it was pretty disappointing. The kids enjoyed it though, and that is what we went for so all was not lost. After the movie we went back to the house and everyone played round after round of Guitar Hero, and then we went to dinner at TGI Friday's. It was an expensive weekend, but a lot of fun.
While everyone else was playing Guitar Hero, mom and I went down in the basement to look at some old things she has found since they moved. There were some REALLY old things in there, and it was funny how much of it I remembered. The one thing I vividly remembered was a hat I decorated for Girl Scout Day Camp...in 1984! I actually remember that camp, and I remember making all of the little trinkets on the hat. Each troop made their own trinket and then we traded and clipped them all to our hats. I also remember that was the trip when a friend and I were returning from the bathroom and we were skipping along and we both stepped right on a snake! We were scared to death and ran the rest of the way to the camp crying; we were both fine and who knows whatever happened to that poor snake!
Other things we found in the box were old leotards from when LaTisha and I were in tap/jazz/ballet, my brothers Cabbage Patch kid, from when he was a baby, my mom's wedding dress (that she made), old baby blankets and shoes, and some old letters. Many of the letters were written by my mom to my dad while he was in Polygraph school. There were a couple that I had written as well as some my grandmother had written her husband back in the 1940's. Neat stuff!
