We had a wonderful time and took a trip to the Zoo on Saturday, to join in the festivities for the baby panda, Mei-Lan's, 1st birthday. There wasn't quite the level of celebration we expected, but we had a good time nonetheless, as we were also joined by our friends Derek and Marcia. They are adopting a 3-year-old from China, who they will call Ava, and hope to travel very soon to bring her home. Isn't she just too sweet and cute? We can't wait to meet her!
It was the Rizzo's very first trip to The Varsity! It was packed, as it was game day, but we managed to find a spot to enjoy our delicious chili dogs, onion rings and frosted oranges...yum! That night we had dinner at one of our favorite local hangouts, The Manchester Arms, and just sat talking until they closed the place down. We said our goodbyes and hope that the next time we see each other, it's on the flight to China.
Thanks again guys, we hope to see you all again soon. All in all, a great weekend!
