Wow! The numbers make me feel tired all over again. Our fall worked out that we visited my family and E's family consecutive weekends. Mix in work travel for E, and we haven't spent much time at home recently. I don't do a lot of weekend updates, but the past two weekends have been busy and full of family, so I wanted to record some of our adventures.
Our first weekend was spent visiting my family in Wisconsin. We left for Wisconsin Saturday morning and got up early Monday morning to leave. My brother, SIL and little niece were there when we got to my mom's house. All 4 cousins together for the first time!
On Monday morning we woke up and took E to a work meeting in Rochester, Minnesota. The girls and I played at the library while he worked. We got home late Monday, got three nights in our own beds, then headed back on the road Thursday afternoon.
I picked up Miss A from preschool, E from work and we started our trip to Watertown, South Dakota, for work meetings for E. The girls and I played in the hotel pool while E worked. After he wrapped up on Friday, we went to Larchwood, Iowa. We had a free night hotel stay at the casino hotel, so we took advantage. The casino is just across the border from where E's family lives, so his dad, brother, SIL and kids came to hang out with us and take advantage of the hotel pool.
Baby C didn't get to ride in the combine just yet, but she was happy to hang out in the car with
Miss A and Little J both thought the combine and semi were pretty cool. Especially when Daddy put them up in the semi full of soybeans.
So much fun, so much family, so much driving. We really enjoyed our visits, but I'm also really excited to be home!
