The Captain's Coming

The 'Captain' was in town this weekend! In college he wore this ridiculous captain's hat, but I had the Admiral one, so I can't talk. Admiral outranks Captain, right? He and J were partners in crime their freshman year of college, but I didn't meet them until two years later. They'd served missions and grown up. A little. He married a great girl I clicked with right away--that's the best. He and the wifey flew in for the weekend and it was just like old times. Only with our babies in tow. But that makes it better!
We went around and saw some sights but what we all really wanted to do was take over the world.
That's right. Risk. The Game of Global Domination.

J somehow manipulates me into doing his dirty battles every time, but I held Australia for a while. I really stink at this game, but we all love it.

Where did you go that was warm enough for Abbey to sport a tank top? I was cuddled under 4 blankets on the couch when I read this post, and I was so confused...

i think what is REALLY significant about this post is that you remembered a really funny, relevant Seinfeld clip to include. Happy!

That was at the Butterfly House. It's a huge conservatory with thousands of butterflies and they keep it like a rain forest in there. After 45 minutes I had to leave, it was so warm.

Ha ha, and about the Seinfeld clip. I think of it EVERY time we play. Do you remember that episode? They insist on playing in Jerry's apartment because it's 'neutral' ground. I can't remember how they end up on the subway, but I can relate to the intensity.

Oh, the warmth looks delightful. How fun that you were able to spend some time battling friends for world domination. :)

I wish that just once Paul would indulge me in a board game of any kind. He is an anti-gamite.. so he says.
It looks like fun!
Miss you..
