Probably the best part of the weekend was spending time with Les and Dee and their son, Zachary, who's approaching a year old (born father's day weekend last June). I last saw him over the holidays, and he's got so much more personality now!
The same is true of Sam, the son (12ish?) of another friend. Last time I saw him a couple years ago, he seemed like a little brat, but he's nicely turned into a human in the intervening time. And -- he likes spicy food! Gotta get him up here for some Thai food one o' these days.
