Pool Day/Anthony’s Birthday Dinner

Finally, the weather was going to be warm enough and it wasn’t supposed to rain. Stephanie and I have been back and forth via text about a pool day soon. When we woke up on Saturday, it looked like a great day for the pool!

We went to Stephanie and Mike’s around 11am. I helped her get packed up and ready.  Drew was able to see Mike for a little bit before we left. We decided to take our car to the pool. Stephanie had Stephen’s Birthday gifts in her trunk and she didn’t want him to see them.

When we arrived at the pool, we set up our lawn chairs, and the kids wanted to go in the pool right away. It was so cute. I put sprayed some sun tan lotion on Stephen while Stephanie finished getting things out and setting up.

Stephanie and Mike’s children call me Daniel Tiger. For those of you who don’t know who Daniel Tiger is, he is a character from Mr. Roger’s neighborhood. It is a popular children’s show here in Pittsburgh! Emma is getting older know and knows how to say Danielle, but it is still cute to hear them say, “Daniel Tiger!” 🙂 I got in the water and swam around a bit, but I just wanted to lay out and work on my tan.

Admittedly, I did not put sun screen on just tanning oil. I didn’t think I was going to get burned. It wasn’t that hot and there were some clouds in the sky, but I should have known you can still get burned when there are clouds!

Around 3:00pm, we left and went home. We got showered and changed. Then went to Bakersfield Tacos for Anthony’s Birthday Dinner. My best friend Anthony is 27 years old. Dinner was interesting. Image may contain: 9 people, including Dylan Murtha, people smiling, people sitting, table and indoor

The tacos are Ala Carte and they are small like three full bites worth. I had two a steak one and a baja shrimp one. Drew had the same. We also ordered chips and guacamole. Plus drinks it was a bit pricey. Anthony chooses places that are  interesting.
After dinner, they had reservations to go on a boat tour of the city. Andrew and I didn’t join them. I wasn’t that interested. I had to go back to my parents and drop off of a form for them that they need to fill out, so I can fax it on Monday at work.

When we said our goodbyes, Drew and I went to the meatball restaurant where Anthony had his birthday last year. They have a beer garden on top of the roof. Andrew and I had a drink there before heading to my parents. It was good to get out, but I was ready to head back.

When we arrived to my parents, I said hi to my pups and held them for a bit, and my mom filled out the form. My Uncle Larry passed away and his funeral is on the 17th. She needed to fill out this form and then I am to fax this form and my uncle’s DD214 on Monday. We talked about the funeral, my dad’s eye surgery to remove a cataract that he has in his eye, and about the family.

Once Drew and I got home, I started feeling nauseous and I had a headache. I wanted to sit outside, but I decided to get a shower and head to bed. My monthly visitor is on it’s way and this usually happens right before it arrives.
