Family fun night

So tonight was my niece's reward. I had challenged her to go a month without TV (mostly because I would have thrown up if I had to watch "High School Musical" again).

Doggoned if she didn't do it. It was a great month. We read more, played board games together, played outdoors more (I rediscovered two-square -- I rocked at that game in elementary school), and she's writing another song for the piano.

So today I paid up. We went to "Incredible Pizza." Think "Chuckee Cheese," but without the rat. Took my sister, we all ate and then played a bunch of arcade games.

Watching those kids play around made me reflect. Some day I'll have kids.... I'll be taking them to that Incredible Pizza place, taking them camping. Quite a weekend.

Just got back

This is kind of a placeholder post... I just got back from Philly / NYC / Valley Forge / Woodstock / Cooperstown / Proposing to Katie.

And boy are my arms tired.

I'll write up a trip report proper here tomorrow, but I'm a little exhausted now. Also a lot to be done. There's a wedding to plan! Next year, about this time.

I also have no idea what's been going on in my home burg of Sand Springs... guess I'll have time to get caught up tomorrow.

That's all for now. Pictures and righteous ruminations to come. Just not tonight. ;)
