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!!
