Weekend fun with friends and family

We had a great weekend here in Paradise.  E got some trim work done in the garden and I did a bit of weeding.  We also got to have a large dose of fun. 

Sat. we met our dear friends, Bob and Janet Miller, at the Riverhouse Reef and Grill Restaurant.  This is a wonderful place right on the water about an hour ten from our house.  It is well worth the drive as the food is simply amazing, fresh and tastefully prepared.  The view is outstanding and the company was, as always, wonderful.

There was a large school of dolphin showing off right off the deck of the restaurant and a wide variety of seabirds serenaded us. 

Bob and E continued their quest for the "perfectly prepared" oysters and both agreed the ones they had here were among the best so far.

I had the lobster and crab pot pie and the pastry was the flakiest and lightest ever. 

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end and we had to part and head our separate ways.  The Millers will be back in Jan. and we have plans already to exchange visits.  Since E was driving, I didn't even mind (much) the usual 'dreaded' bridge.

Sunday, my daughter and I had the rare opportunity of spending several hours together just the two of us.  We usually have one or all of the Grands with us and, while I do love those little ones to pieces, spending time with my daughter alone is time to be treasured.  We headed to Hyde Park for some shopping at two of our favorite stores:  Pottery Barn and Anthropology.  We also hit a toy store where we scored with light up bracelets for H'ween for the Grands and Nana found 3 "hot wheel" type school buses for their Christmas stockings.  

Hope your weekend was filled with family, fun and good friends.
