Saturday we slept in due to the late evening the night before. I had to go into work for a little while, so I dropped my dad and Alex at Ariel's apartment. She had asked if my dad would help her replace her flat tire with her spare and then figure out how to get new tires. My dad had planned on doing that while I was at work, but no one answered the door. They waited there while I ran to work and they were still sitting on her steps when I got back! I went and banged on her door. No answer. I tried the door knob and sure enough, the door was open. So I went inside and banged on her bedroom door! Robert finally came out and told me he would be down to help (he had the keys to her trunk) After that fiasco, we went to a local burger place for lunch. It is right on the water and despite the umbrella at our table, we all got a little burnt.
That evening we had Sara and JR over to help teach my family how to play Liverpool Rummy. They caught on fairly quickly, even though the rules are a little tricky. My dad was a trooper and stayed up until 1am when we finished the game! My brother really enjoyed the game, so hopefully we'll be able to play a few more times before they leave for Illinois again.
Third Coast, baby!
