The night he got back in town we watched... you guessed it.... Field of Dreams! The wife in that movie gets the award for the most supportive wife in history. I told Kenny that if he ever started to hear voices, I'd probably tell him to go see the doctor, not encourage him to do what the voices say. His reply..."If I start to hear voices?!?"
On Saturday morning we woke up early, gave Pilot a haircut and a bath (despite what he might tell you, he really likes it). We then headed over to the mall to catch an early showing of Harry Potter (in our house pronounced: A-rry Pott-ah).
Next we grabbed a Slurpee and a bite to eat at Emmas because poor Kenny had been Mexican food deprived in Iowa, then off we went to the Crossroads of the West Gun Show at Del Mar. Now, last year we attended the gun show and were so utterly disappointed that we wrote a letter to the Crossroads people. Because of that letter, they sent us some VIP tickets to another gun show. Having forgotten our past experience and having free tickets in our hands, we figured we would have a great time and possibly find the deal of a lifetime on some rare gun. Alas! It was not meant to be. We spent about half an hour at the show wandering by booths that had absolutely nothing to do with guns. Although the next time you are in the market for crystal, candles, army surplus or kids toys, just head over to the gun show and you will have a great selection!
Not to let our day be spoiled, we drove over to Torrey Pines/ La Jolla and spent some time at the gilder port watching paragliders soar around the cliffs. It looked relaxing, but we decided that we would rather have an airplane and a motor any day!
Later that night we went over to Boomers and played miniature golf, road go-karts (Kenny sideswiped some little kid and spun out! Totally the kid’s fault if you ask Kenny!), went to the batting cages (Thank you, Field of Dreams) and then played a few video games. We were like regular junior highers :)
Nothing like a gun show and mini golf to help you reconnect! :)
