"You Gotta Know When to Hold 'Em"

The boys have been hanging in San Clemente this weekend with Aunt Susan, Uncle Dennis, Aunt Sandy, and Namie.  We drove them down to meet Susan Saturday morning in Manhattan beach and then after the drop off Garrett and I headed over to see Matt's new house ......beautiful, close to the beach, great area, house.  We drove back up to Santa Clarita after a quick lunch at California Pizza Kitchen.  Unfortunately there was an accident so traffic was pretty bad going back.  But, we both enjoyed a relaxing afternoon of reading, napping, and movie watching, in addition to getting the kitchen cleaned!  It's amazing how much one can do in an afternoon with no kids around.

The best part was last night though.  We were invited to a friend's house to play a friendly poker game.  It's been so long that we've hung out with just adults, together, after dark! :)  It was a very nice evening/night and we didn't get home until after 1.  That's super late for me!  And we even came home with one dollar more than we brought (super high stakes).  

Today we are heading back down to Manhattan Beach to meet the boys and celebrate Bob's birthday.  Should be another fun afternoon and I'm looking forward to seeing those cute boys again!

We had the BEST time with the boys. They are so cute, smart etc. When we came back to Namie's. the house was too quiet.
Love to all

love you all, Susan & Dennis

How great that you and Garrett got some "adult" time. You certainly stayed out later than we do. I could see how happy you were, though, to see the little boys again at our house. I hated to see them leave because I just love being with them and laughing at their cute little senses of humor. Each so special and different from the other, but best friends. Hope you had a nice day today. Much love, Grandma Dee
