Another Night Out

"Some luck lies in not getting what you thought you wanted but getting what you have, which once you have got it you may be smart enough to see is what you would have wanted had you known."

Garrison Keillor

Tonight we went with Megan, Betsy and Jason & Ruthann to see Garrison Keillor at the Riverside Municipal Auditorium. Tenley went to stay with Auntie Jen for the night.

We laughed until our sides hurt while we listened to Mr. Keillor tell us a story about his youth in Lake Wobegon, MN. Tenley ran all over Jen’s house and climbed the stairs repeatedly.

When we got back to Jen & Todd’s house around 10:30pm or so, we were wondering if Tenley would be asleep or not. The answer was immediately apparent since we were greeted by a smiling baby face through the window of the front door as Todd held her up to see us. I don’t think Michelle or I were delusional enough to think that our child would be asleep as she should have been. No, there were too many things to do at this new place that she had never been before. After we made sure that Jen & Todd still had their sanity and that their house was still intact, we left took Tenley home. We did tell her that she would be back soon for a baby shower and she could once again climb the stairs repeatedly in her vain attempt to get somewhere more interesting.
