Yesterday, we saw some old friends, Ken and Val, and their new baby, Valexi. A few of you reading this may remember Ken as our favorite sushi chef and friend. He moved off 2 years ago to New York and then Orlando to further his career in the industry (can’t wait til we get a chance to sample his new skills). He and his wife had a beautiful baby girl this past December. She is the happiest baby I’ve ever seen.
Anyway, they were visiting family in Tullahoma, TN and invited us to visit for the evening. We had a marvelous time! Valexi loved Ian at first site, especially his fingers which she nibbled on contentedly for the first part of the visit. Any other female who attempts this risks life and limb. Ken and Ian spent most of their time chasing around Val’s sister’s kids and doing that male bonding thing. I spent most of my time with Val and her sister (whose name is escaping me, unfortunately), learning tricks of the trade from good moms.
All in all, a good day. Made even better by the Sonic fudge cake sunday on the drive home.
