We had a really great weekend -- some old friends of ours from our college days recently moved to Germany on an assignment. (Such good old friends -- she was my roommate at one point, the guys used to play a weekly pool game, our first date was a triple with them and one other couple. Good times.) So they drove over with their 3 kids and stayed with us for a couple of days. It's amazing how much we still have in common -- at least partly because our big life changes have happened at about the same time. So our kids are close in age, we're all in Europe now, etc. The kids played really well together (boys + legos = BFF). We even managed to get a baby sitter and go on a date, with only my baby in tow.
