The weekend of the 10th Aaron was going to be in town "playing army" as he put it. He had promised my mom that during his next visit he would cook her and my dad dinner. Saturday night we ended up at their house for dinner, but Aaron promised Sunday night it would be his turn to cook. We were all very excited because Aaron is studying to be a chef. Who wouldn't want to be his guinea pig?
Sunday afternoon Robin and Matt gave us a call seeing if we'd like to meet them in Columbia and go to the State Museum. Danny had been wanting to go and there was a Leonardo Divinci exhibit that looked interesting, so off we went. We spent 3 and a half hours wandering all over. There's nothing like a little education to liven up a Sunday afternoon.

Around 5 o'clock we headed back to our house and Aaron was cooking up a storm. My parents were already there and ready for the wonderful food to come. My brother Casey and his friend joined for the feast as well. A simple dinner turned into quite the festivity and it was super yummy. Aaron made chicken stuffed with tomatoes and cheese, a salad with strawberries and blue cheese, and rice with mushrooms. And while he made a complete mess in my kitchen it was worth every dish that I had to clean afterwards!
