Jury Duty & Dinner And A Movie With My Sweetheart

 My day started at the county courthouse, b/c I had jury duty. We were escorted into a huge room that holds 600 people (there were about 400 of us in there). We watched a video about how important doing our civil duty is, and then we waited. Luckily they had on HGTV while we waited to pass the time. They called out groups of people by 20's and then by 70's to go to certain cases. They said a couple of cases decided to either settle or accept a plea bargain, so we weren't needed! I left and went to work. I've been on a jury before and actually enjoyed it, so I was a little bit bummed that I wasn't picked. 

 When Frank got home from work tonight, Liz was at our house to talk & hang out for a little bit. After talking to Liz for a while, we decided to go out on a date. We ended up at a cute little restaurant in an old part of downtown. The food was good, but it wasn't somewhere that I would go out of my way to eat at again.

 We went to the "fancy" movie theater where you can order food at your seat & the seats recline. We ended up seeing Planet of the Apes. I did not have very high expectations, but I was actually very pleasantly surprised at how good it was. There's a really great story line w/ some surprise twists that we didn't see coming. It's also amazing how life like they are able to make the animals look. Woody Harrelson turned in a great performance. But the best part of the whole thing was getting to be with my sweetheart and hold hands and create fun memories together.

Miss Autumn also got to have lots of fun today. Lexie took them to a place where they could run around & play & burn off some energy. She said that Autumn was so cute to help Adam on the slides and follow him around. She had to come & take a break b/c she was so hot & sweaty!
