Not that anyone knew I was gone, but the family and I headed down to Biloxi to stay with my father-in-law for the Mother's Day weekend. It was a great trip! (Although a six-hour drive at 35 is much longer than it was at 25.)
J-Mom and I saw Star Trek Friday night (it was fantastic!); did a little shopping, ate a nice buffet lunch and spent the afternoon with some old friends on Saturday; and went to the beach to let the kids splash in the nasty water and unsuccessfully try to fly a kite on Sunday. My step mother-in-law also bought J-Mom a spa package so J-Mom spent the afternoon getting pampered. All in all, a very good weekend.
