Spontaneous Combustion

This Friday around 4 Stephanie found our friends James and Sherrie’s keys they lost about 6 months ago in the glove box of our car.  After a couple of quick emails about it, Sherrie jokingly invited us to drive 2 hours to Charlottesville for James’ birthday party that night.  Unbeknownst to Sherrie, Stephanie and I have spent the large majority of the last month cooped up in our house and had just a little case of cabin fever so we gladly took her up on her offer.

So, I got off at 5, we spent about 30 minutes packing, and hit the road.  It was a spontaneous trip powered by the internal combustion engine in our car.  At 7:30 PM that night we showed up for James’ surprise party:

By the end of the night Calvin had definitely worn everyone out and Sherrie fell asleep with him on the couch:

The next day we hung out and went for a walk:

And that night I guest played on James’ indoor soccer team.  Here’s Calvin cheering me on:

James was sad to see us leave today:

And I took this fun self portrait:

Right before James and Sherrie had to say bye to Little Man.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that James had cheek surgery a couple of years ago and has trouble smiling now.  This is about the best he could do:
