To get out of the house, we took a quick trip to Barnes & Noble in the morning. Our son found himself a construction trucks book. Our daughter got all lawyerly on us and was somehow able to convince us to get a stopwatch book. Robin had hoped to find last month’s Martha Stewart magazine, but left disappointed.
Chris and the kids saw Robots in the afternoon. It was pretty good, but nothing spectacular. Our son was asking to leave 10 minutes into it, but ended up rather liking it.
Erin came over for more masters work. She insisted that she was not staying for dinner, not wanting to burden us with extra work. Somehow, she did not consider that we were going to eat anyway (and we like the company!).
Our daughter helped Chris with the pancakes while Robin made the potatoes and some new muffin-style frittatas. Dinner, unlike the first day of spring, turned out very nice.
