A Harry Potter Weekend Vacation

Due to bad scheduling coordination, I managed to make this past weekend the only time Tom and I could take a vacation together this summer. Luckily, I was able to take my scheduled Saturday off and we headed up to Big Bear for three days at the cabin. Even though it was short, we managed to do most of the things we do on a regular vacation - hike, eat out, take pictures, read, and relax. Speaking of reading, we stayed up most of both nights to read Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows. We also made time for a short canoe trip on the lake (my first ever). Too bad Tom wasn't able to drop a line in the water nor was I able to take pictures from the canoe because it was too windy and choppy. After bringing the canoe to shore and enjoying the mild weather and watching the clouds, jet skiers, and ducks, we went to the theater and saw Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix. We concluded Saturday by picking up Chinese food and getting to experience a microburst of rain at the airport. After dinner, drinks, and champagne, we read Harry Potter for the rest of the night. (Tom finished first and I finished a little after sunrise.)Okay, so April's probably right - we're geeks ;-)
