Summer Storms

We had some storms this weekend and the power went out at my office, so my file server has been unavailble to show pictures - or save new pictures. What's a blog post without pictures?

Friday was another scorcher, so I decided to end my workday early and find relief in the theaters again. I saw this one:

I liked it, but I like the Owen Wilson/Vince Vaughn/Will Ferrell/Ben Stiller movies. They're not all in this one, but I think of them as sort of a comedian rat pack for our generation. It's a bit racy, but nothing too over the top. Perfect way to enjoy a hot summer afternoon/early evening.

Saturday I had a chance to spend a little time with Red and we decided to go to Como Zoo and check out the new Como Town. It's a really nice ride area - I think his favorite was the chance to drive a little car and earn a driver's license. We also had a water balloon fight and got soaking wet. We walked through the conservatory and some of the zoo, then played mini golf. It was a pretty fun day!

Here's a picture of Florentine Flattery as finished:
