On Saturday evening, my sister and I went to dinner at a friend’s house. She is married and has 2 kids. The boy is 16 years old and the girl 14 years old. I remember when the boy was a toddler. He was a little terror. I thought he would grow up the same way.
How wrong I was! These two are the best kids ever. The whole time we were there not once I saw either kid with a cell phone. They were talking to us, helping with dinner, playing with the dog. Such a pleasure! We don’t see them often but every time we do, it is the same way.
The least well-behaved person was the husband. I am kidding, but he is so stubborn and can be a bit of a know-it-all. It is often hard to have a conversation. At times I would just agree with whatever he was saying because it was just easier this way. I blame it on him being an Aries. I am an Aries, so I know I can be that way sometimes. Still, he was and has always been a very nice host.

To drink we had sparkling wine. The sushi looked great, as you can see by the picture below, but since I don’t eat sushi I had tacos and all the trimmings. For dessert we brought over a delicious strawberry shortcake from a French bakery I like. My friend also served cherry pie. All was delicious.

It was our first time seeing their dog. Her name is Nela and she is only 6 months. Since she is just a child, she is a just a big bundle of energy. I wish I lived in a house with a yard, I would definitely have my own Nela.

It was an awesome night. We always promise to see more of each other but for some reason, we don’t. It seems it is always an once a year thing.
