I met Eva (who moved to the East Coast), Nancy and Heather at a YUMMY Ethiopian restaurant, Cafe Lalibela, in Tempe last night as she was in town for a wedding.
The company, well, it was wonderful since I haven't seen the ladies in months! I would definitely go back for the food.
On Saturday morning the kids & I met my friend Kristian & her hubby, Andy, at the Buttes Resort for an early morning breakfast before they head back to New Jersey.
With Andy & the kids.
We had a lovely buffet and they made the kids special pancakes.
After breakfast, the kids explored the hotel. It is set up above the freeway so we have seen it many times but never visited it so they could see the overlook.
As with any resort, the grounds were beautiful.
In the afternoon we headed over to a local park so the kids could play in the water. Our pool isn't quite warm enough even though the temperature was 101 F yesterday.
I aslo bought a new vacuum yesterday at Sears since the one we have had for 10+ years died (thank goodness). This was reviewed as one of the best vacuums for the money in Consumer Reports. It even beat the Dyson.
This is what the new vacuum picked up in the living/dining room and the master bedroom yesterday. Um, apparently our old vacuum wasn't working all that well.
