Sunny Weekend, Finally

Yay! It finally stopped being rainy dreary and overcast!

Originally, Kenji and I planned to go visit my folks this weekend. Like us, they got a whole bunch of rain last week. Unlike us, they also got a whole bunch of water in their cellar as a result of all the rain. They are still cleaning up from the mess, and they said they'd really rather not have visitors this weekend, so here we are.

Therefore, instead of driving up to Massachusetts this afternoon, we took a little ride out to Chester, New Jersey. We chose Chester in part because that's where my work's offices will be moving in a couple of weeks, and I wanted to show Kenji where the new offices are. When he saw how long the commute would be, he agreed that it sucks.

But Chester is also a cute little town, so that's the other reason we decided to drive out there this afternoon. We had ice cream and visited funky little antique shops. I learned that I was born in between the "Johnny Carson: The Lonesome Hero of Middle America" and "Ecology Becomes Everybody's Issue: Monk Seals of Japan" issues of Life Magazine. The antique shop didn't have any issues for the year Kenji was born, so we can't tell you what Life Magazine had to say about life back then. Oh well.

On our way home, we passed a mini-golf place in Whippany, so we stopped and played some... mini-golf. Kenji started off as the score-keeper. He should never have let me touch the score card, since I made sure it would not be so easy to add up. You can also see that we didn't do a good job of following the rules as many of our holes went well beyond the five stroke limit. The course wasn't crowded though, so it wasn't a problem.
