Chris' mom flew out to Colorado to be with his sister Caroline while she recovers from knee surgery. The surgery was Tuesday and she seems to doing great! Since his mom was going to be in Colorado for two weeks, we invited his dad to come visit us over the long weekend. We had a great time! We had to introduce Jay to our favorite new restaurant: Archie Moore's in Fairfield. Chris and I have been there a handful of times and always order the same thing- he gets 14 wings and I get a honey BBQ chicken wrap with sweet potato fries. Sweet potato fries...I'm hungry just thinking about them. Is there anything better than sweet potato fries? I'm not sure. Anyway, it was fun to see something new off the menu (Jay ordered the Mongolian steak sandwich with sweet potato fries, of course.)
While I was busy making pillow covers for our living room that weekend, Chris and Jay were busy with a project of their own. Saturday morning they went to Home Depot to purchase supplies to build a workbench down in the basement. The building started Saturday afternoon and finished up on Sunday morning. At first I couldn't really figure out where they were going with it...
But it quickly started shaping into something that resembled a workbench!
And here is the finished project! Didn't they do a great job?
Now the vice I got Chris for Christmas finally has a permanent home. Well done, guys! It looks great!
