10. on a scale of 1-10

perfect weekend.
like- stick the landing- perfect.
1.)brooks and brandon went on their little man outing on friday night.
one 3rd of the evening involved a movie about a princess and a frog.
two 3rds of the evening involved building back up testosterone lost in viewing previously mentioned movie by going to an.......arcade. (gasp) brandon said brooks ran from game to game until he settled on the one where you shoot spiders and dragonflies with a friendly looking gun. i turn my head to this violent behavior.
arcades are full of motherless children that will eventually turn into the donkeyboys of treasure island.

2.)however- game on. because when the boys are away (and ade's in bed) momma plays.
i FINALLY watched "the graduate".
1967. dustin hoffman. simon and garfunkle. cinematic glory.
i've never been more inspired to take pictures in my life.
i loved everything about that movie which is good because it only took me 42 years to get around to seeing it.

3.) we got a sitter to go on our favorite kind of date. we bargain hunted in the basement of Last Chance for 3 hours in the middle of the day. you can have your fancy restaurants and romantic strolls. lew and i find love while trying on japanese sneakers and tory burch skirts. (just me in the skirts of course) we held hands in the car and talked about motivation and technique needed to navigate that addictive hell hole. we hi-5'd each other for the finds we did manage to smuggle home.
ahhhhh love.

4.) we ate at baja fresh

5.) i got to watch ANOTHER movie by myself. in bed. listening to the rain.
"lost in translation". i'm going to japan this year. i'm not joking.

6.) found some photo/collage opp's:

7.) took this picture of my sweet little brooks in his jammies on sunday morning:
(dont worry. i looked at this picture before church and after throwing up in my mouth, went for a little more edited version- to lew's dismay)
accidentally got this one of my crazy little ade:
the end.

Mrs. Robinson, are you trying to seduce me?

I loved the arcade and as far as I am concerned, I don't have a donkey tail yet. Love you Heather and we really hope we can see you soon.

I am pretty positive you just described the pinnacle of existence.

You can have Japan - I'm done with it :) In fact, you can have all of Asia (except maybe Malaysia and Thailand because I love it there) - I will never come back.

Kyoto is a 1.5 hour plane ride from Oki ... we went back in 2008 and it was spectacular. There are pretty cheap tickets you can buy from Kadena Air Base. I work with all Japanese workers so I hear them speaking in Japanese all day long - I'm sure I could convince one of them to take you around :P

Sounds like a phenomenal weekend.

I enjoyed the donkey children comment.
