It is a rainy and cool Sunday morning here in NC.
I have decided to let the girls sleep in and miss church this morning.
I know, I know....bad mom!
Yesterday I took the MOTH (man of the house) to the airport for his flight to Las Vegas.
He has conferences there a couple of times a year. I try to go with him when he goes, but the kids have a lot going on this week and it was better I stay here and not turn them and the house over to Grandma.
I wish I could have gone. I would like a change of scenery.
Friday night was family night and we went out to eat at our favorite sushi restaurant
and then went to see the movie, Angels and Demons.
I read 1/2 of the book and then got caught up in reading all 4 of the Twilight books. I wanted to finish the book before going to see the movie, but never got the chance to sit and read this past week. Anyhow, from what I read and after seeing the movie, I think the movie was pretty good. What I enjoyed the most about the movie was seeing Rome.
(even though the movie was filmed mostly on sets because of it being controversial to Catholics)
I kept elbowing #2 and whispering "I've been there" all throughout the movie.
Three years ago today, I was there in the Vatican, touring the Pantheon and sipping wine at a cafe overlooking the Colosseum.

If I went to Vegas I could have gone to the Venetian, sat in one of their cafes and pretended to be Italy.
We took #1 and #2 to Las Vegas when they were in middle school.
