I can honestly say that we made the most of our Messiah College connections this weekend! On Friday night we went to Gettysburg with our good friends Matt and Anita to enjoy a fine dinner at the Dobbin House Tavern, in support of a fund-raising effort by the College’s department of family science. The dinner and worthy cause made for a nice double date!
(You’re not tired of seeing pictures of these cute girls are you?)
On Saturday, Jeff and I had the privilege (and I mean that!) of spending a few hours with Natalie and Emma. We picked them up at 11 a.m. and headed to “Old McDonald’s” (as coined by cute Natalie) for lunch. Then, we went to the Oakes Museum on campus. Emma, especially, loved the museum and all the animals. (“Don’t pet them,” she kept reminding me.) She just bounced around, pointing and exclaiming each time she saw something that delighted her. Jeff and I were smitten (as usual) and took such delight in her joy! Then, to cap our afternoon of fun, we took the girls to Larsen Student Union for cookies and chocolate milk. Natalie fell asleep on the way home, and Emma continued to enlighten us with stories about Shrek’s donkey. A think it’s safe to say that a grand time was had by all!
Yesterday, Jeff and I saw the closing performance of “Godspell” at Messiah. It was unbelievably good! Theatre at Messiah continues to impress the socks of me — they have to be the best around! They truly do outstanding work in area well-saturated with theatre options.
And, not to worry — my weekend included plenty of time for reading “War and Peace.” I have surged ahead to page 250!
