Visit from Jen & Curt!!

This week has been a little crazy!!  Jen and Curt came for a visit last Friday and stayed until Sunday, and it certainly wore me out!! :)  Since moving to Indiana, you could say we've slowed down a little.  They got here Friday night at around 7:30.  We took them for dinner at Logan's Roadhouse and then out for drinks.  Except we haven't ever gone out for drinks in Plainfield, so we did some exploring with them.  The first place we went was KT's Pub.  It's a bar and grill place, but you have to be 21 to get in.  We decided that was for a different crowd than we were looking for, so we headed over to Firehouse Bar and Grill.  It's a small, older looking building, but it's closer to our apartment.  We ended up really liking it there.  Friday night is always karaoke night, so that was a good time.  And they have a couple pool tables and darts with plenty of room.  We ended up staying until around 2:30 and called it a night! 

We had a late start Saturday but went and had lunch at Dave and Busters.  I don't think they have them in Iowa, but it's a dinner/arcade for adults.  We spent a few hours there and then showed them around the city.  We had to make a stop at our favortie little ice cream shop on the way downtown, Brics!  If you ever come for a visit, we'll take you there! :)  Then I was able to take them up in my office building for a view of the city.  Then we headed back to plainfield.  We hung out at home for a while, and we decided to try another new bar to start the night off.  We headed to Bubba's Bar and Grill, which ended up being a primarily young crowd.  We stayed for a few hours and headed back to Fireside for the rest of the night.  When we got home, we decided to make a pizza and mac and cheese, but, of course, Jen and I were the only ones to eat it!!  Derrick and Curt were just going to take "little naps" while it cooked and then have some...but this is what happened!  (Curt at least chose the couch!)

Sunday we went out for breakfast at Bob Evans, and then Jen and Curt headed back to Iowa!  We're so happy they came for a visit!  We had a great time and can't wait to see them again when we're back in January!!

P.S. Sorry for the lack of pictures!  Jen is the smart one that brought her camera!!!
