Good Thing We Didn't Have Any Plans: 07/04/08

We didn't have any plans today for Independence Day. The weather is still pretty smoky and Harriet's too young to stay up late for fireworks. We didn't have any parties to go to either. Our only plan was to take it easy and have hot dogs and watermelon for desert.

At eleven this morning we got a telephone call from Ian's parents. We knew they should be en route to Japan but they were stuck on the tarmac at LAX waiting for the fog to clear at SFO. They wanted to know if they had any chance to still catch their connection. It looked doubtful.

When Ian went to get our hotdog's he bought extras just in case they missed their flight. At four we got the call; they were here and stuck in a hotel in Burlingame. They had missed their flight by two minutes. So Ian dashed over the bridge to pick them up for dinner while Sean, Harriet and I did a lick and a promise on the house.

So they're here watching season one, disc 2 of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fast Forward. Harriet is reading Flip and Flop to Judy. That reminds me, I should review Flip and Flop; I've read it enough times.
