Mama’s Solo Trip!

Mikey has been encouraging me to go away for a solo trip for a few years now, so when I received the invite to the wedding of one of my sweet friends from high school, I decided to go!  Samantha was married in Wisconsin, so I was able to stay with my family and have some quality time with them at the same time.  I had a lovely weekend away.

I landed on Friday evening.  Cassia picked me up and I was able to surprise her girls at their house.  I had a great time chatting with them and seeing their toys and books.  These girls are SO special to me; words cannot express what they mean to me.  Then Cass and I went out for dinner and chatted until late that night.  It was a great way to spend a Friday night!

On Saturday, Ger (my brother), Lauren and their two adorable sweet boys joined us for breakfast.  My aunt and uncle came, too!  We enjoyed a delicious breakfast and lots of good conversations.  This was my first time meeting Abe, my newest nephew!  He’s fantastic, of course.  Micah wanted to give Ivan a gift, so he made sure I brought along one of his excavators for him.  Ivan loved it!  I also went for a bike ride with my Dad, which is something I did a lot over the summers in college.  It was great to get out there with him again!

That evening, I went to the wedding in Beloit, Wisconsin.  It was about an hour and a half away and I enjoyed the silence of the car ride. =D  It was such a sweet treat to see my closest high school friends all together again!!  For your viewing pleasure, I’m including a picture of a few of us from high school.  These girls don’t age! =)  I may get more pictures later as friends post on Facebook, but this is all I’ve got so far because I didn’t take a single picture.  Oops!

Sunday was spent at church and enjoying fantastic food and company.  We spent some more time with Ger, Lauren and the boys that afternoon.  It was a relaxing and wonderful weekend.  Thanks for hosting me!!
