Our original plan for this weekend was for us (Meghan and I) to go camping. Well after seeing the temperature forecasts for this weekend, we decided on thursday to cancel our camping plans. What with Meghan being pregnant, and with me being quite heat-averse, we decided that was the best decision.

So...in lieu of caming, we went to the opposite end of the spectrum and headed to Ikea and hugedale this evening. Ikea was fun, as always...we were interested to see what they carried in the way of cribbage for the baby room, but we didn't really like any of their offerrings. We did feast on some of their extrememly good swedish meatballs, lingonberries, and lingonberry soda, though. That made our respective tummies happy.

Following Ikea, we drove across the street to Hugedale to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It was quite an enjoyable movie, though a bit slow at times. Perhaps that was becase the story is so familiar. Anyways, Depp does an excellent (albeit a bit wierd) job of playing Willie Wonka. I'd give it a 6/10 I guess.
