our week

We've had a wonderful week! We went to Minneapolis to visit with Thomas' parents who were here from California and have "Christmas" with them. Thomas and his dad also had a pastor's conference that they were going to go to Monday through Wednesday. I love hanging out with family. The fun begins, for me, when we get loaded into the truck to take the 2 1/2 hour ride down there. I love road trips!! I think it started when I was younger and had to travel an hour (one way) every week to go to church. You really get to know people when you travel.

Here's what our week looked like:

Sunday: We arrived in Minneapolis and went right away to drop Aza off at a kennel. Then we headed over to Thomas' brothers house and watched the Super Bowl. Garrison and one of our nephews opened up presents since they have birthday's in January.

Monday: Thomas, Garrison, Thomas' sister, parents and myself went to a thrift store and found lots of "goodies" ( 3 lamp stands, a picture for Garrison's future "big boy" room and a basket for G's toys). It is so exciting to find nice things for dirt cheap. Then we headed off to Panera to eat lunch. After lunch Thomas, Garrison, Sharon (Thomas' mom) and myself went to IKEA!! I think we spent two hours in that place looking at everything. Thomas was getting a little antsy towards the end. He can only handle so much shopping. Garrison did great the whole day. He took a little snooze while we were in IKEA. To end the evening we went to Thomas' sisters house and hung out as a family. Thomas and John (his dad) went to their conference from 6:30 to 9 pm.

Tuesday: Thomas and John were at the conference the whole day. Garrison, Sharon and I hung out at Thomas' brothers house until it was time to meet up with Thomas and John (around 4). We had supper at Jennifer's house (Thomas' sister) and Thomas and John headed back out to their conference.

Wednesday: Thomas and John only had their conference until 10:30 am. Garrison and I hung out until Thomas, John and Sharon came with lunch. Then we headed out to some stores. Thomas' whole family got together and had "Christmas". It was nice to hang out with everyone.

Thursday: We left to come home.

Friday: Thomas went to work. Garrison and I went grocery shopping, unpacked, did laundry and relaxed. It's fun to go on vacation, but it's also nice to be home. And tomorrow Thomas and I will be celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary.
