New friends make a rainy day better

We actually got up early today and met my friends Judi, Darcel and Donna for breakfast.   That's Maribel, who always knows my order before I say a word, and keeps my iced tea coming.

After breakfast, we went right over to my job, which has been suffering a bit while we have a little visitor keeping me busy.   It was rainy so Aidan couldn't go to the playground next door, but my coworker Pipa brought her boys to work today, too, and they all became fast friends.   First, Jacob and Aidan were playing video games and watching a movie.

A little while later, big brother Luc joined them and they had lots of fun playing together for hours.  Here they are engrossed in a card game.  I believe the rules were made up as they went along.   :)

What cute boys!   Pipa was nice enough to take them all to lunch so I could keep working. Thanks, Pipa!   Now the guys are planning to get together another day.

Aidan did NOT want to do his learning programs at all today.  It is becoming a bit of a struggle. I had to bribe him with the promise of a milkshake at Amelia's on the way home.   :)   We stayed at work till 4:30 and I got quite a bit accomplished, thank goodness.  Tonight we've all been pretty  lazy.   

Aidan and Grandpa Rich chilled out with popcorn and Popeye cartoons.  What more could you want?!!   We are hoping for a sunny day tomorrow so we can hike up Bunker Hill and take a picnic lunch.
