After everyone had showered we all visited the zoo. It was a slightly rainy day, so happily the zoo was not crowded at all but it was still pleasant enough to walk around most of the time. Nephew was most impressed by the aquarium portion, with the colorful fish (and penguins!) though later he would claim to most vividly remember one of the elephants peeing (“Big pee!”) (he’s two).
Later we went to my grandparents’ house for an Easter party. Great food and lively discussion as always.
Up earlyish; showered and rode my bike to the shop for a tune-up. The rear dérailleur was slipping a bit when shifting, and it was due anyway.
Lunch with Emily at Aladdin’s Eatery. Great little chicken pita roll. Also the raspberry smoothie was delicious.
Walked home; played a bit of Mass Effect 2 (thanks again, hun!)
Out to Frank’s Bar and Grill 88 in Bethel Park for my grandparents’ 60th wedding anniversary. Lots of fun, with my grandfather going into rather too much detail about how he kept track of how long they’ve been married.
Back to my grandparents’ house for the “after-party”. Lively discussion of things family and political. Home late to pass out.
Progress on driver performance continues. Seems every change brings incremental improvement, yet I still haven’t fully fixed the problem. Dialogue with the board vendor is helpful, and I believe convergence on a solution is imminent.
Stopped by the PennDOT center across the street from the office and replaced my driver’s license. New picture is every bit as dorky as the old one.
Home; informed of a party this weekend for my grandparents’ 60th wedding anniversary. Should be a great time, as my family’s parties tend to be.
Dinner was feta cheese omlettes and salad lovingly prepared by my wife, who then lovingly encouraged me to get ready to go to the gym.
