Pancake cook-off.

Good morning, it is Saturday.

Last night Maren and I went to an Auction for AYSA, the organization that Preston plays soccer for. At the same time there was a party brewing at our house as well. John, Carol, Stef, Mel, Court, Jack and Avery all came over to hang out as Maren and I were leaving. I am guessing the conversation went something like this, "Julian and Maren will be out, PARTY at the Slane's house!" Actually John and Carol came out to hang with the kids and the party just followed them. Sounds like it was breakfast for dinner with a pancake cook-off between Preston and Grandpa. From what I understand, John made an excellent pancake as usual, but Preston tipped the scales by mixing chocolate chips into his pancakes. And since the main voters were kids...lets just say John will surely be coming up with a secret ingredient and a rematch will be in the making.

Back to the auction. It was fun, if not way too crowded with lines that were way too long. But we had fun. Dinner was nice and the auction was fun. Maren "won" a haircut and extras from a local salon. Actually she did get a good deal on this bid. We were out bid on all our other bids. I was assigned bartender duty for awhile which was fun, but I slipped out about halfway through and we went home as it was getting late.

Today we have plenty on the calendar, who knows how much of it will get done.

See you tomorrow.
