Weekend fun

Weekend fun

Wow, what a weekend. I can't believe it's Monday already. We had a great weekend. Friday Forrest had his annual review at work, and got a lot of positive feedback. He was very encouraged and walked away with more confidence in himself. So to celebrate, we went out to eat. We found a good mexican restaurant, and enjoyed some good fajitas, and of course, a strawberry daquiri for me! After dinner, we headed home, got Shepherd ready for bed, and plopped down on the couch to watch several episodes of Arrested Development, season 3. After an hour, we went on to bed, and were in the bed at 9:30.

We got a good nights rest, and on Saturday, woke up early and decided to poke around Baltimore for the day. There was an oyster-fest at Fells Point, and we thought we'd check it out, as well as check out the harbor area. The oysterfest was sponsered by Max's on Broadway, so we stopped by to check out Max's for lunch. They had over 100 beers on tap, including our favorite cider, Woodchuck. With a glass of the Amber cider, we chowed down on some wings and a hamburger we split. After lunch, we headed to the harbor and walked around, checking out downtown. Baltimore is so beautiful. The historic areas were gorgeous, and walking around the harbor was fun. We've decided to make a day trip back to the aquarium because, dang, does that thing look like fun. :)

Saturday night, I decided to try my hand at something new, and cooked a vegetarian dinner. We've talked on and off about eating more vegetarian meals (not cutting meat out entirely), and I finally took a stab at cooking with Tofu. I made Cocounut Curry Tofu and a vegetable stir fry, and if I may say so myself, it was delicious. I'm not normally one to go for Tofu, but it turned out so good, that I'm going to try to find more recipes for it, and try them! Any of you have suggestions for vegetarian meals?

Sunday, we went to church, and then came home and hung out. We got a call from Forrest's cousin, Beth, and went to meet her for dinner. She hadn't seen Shepherd yet, and we had a great time hanging out and visiting her. Shepherd of course, turned on the charm, and wore himself out charming everyone. He passed out in the car, and didn't wake up when we carried him inside. We were worn out too, and ended up in bed early, again... but no one's complaining, as I got almost a full night's sleep...

So, all in all, a great weekend... oh, that, and Shepherd learned to stick out his tongue... :) More pictures over at Flickr
