summer fun {trip to NY}

7 Aug


At the beginning of July, we made a trip to Dan’s parents. We were finally going to see his brother, Jon, and sister-in-law, Amanda, and their cute little 3 year old, Abby. We hadn’t seen them since our wedding over a year ago. That is way too long to go without seeing family. And I knew Abby had grown so much since the wedding and I was so excited to see her. I pretty much spent the entire weekend with her and it was awesome. Dan spent more time with his dad and brother but that was good for him.
We played outside a lot. Abby loves her Unki Dan and he helped her climb a tree in the yard.

I went to the playground with Amanda and Abby and snapped tons of pictures of Abby playing. I’m definitely the crazy picture taking Aunt. But I’m ok with that.

We went to the playground on Sunday morning too, before everyone had to head home. Jon came this time too.

Before we left on Sunday, I was hanging out with Abby in the living room and she came over to show me something. I decided to take some pictures of us together because I don’t get very many. I asked her to make a funny face and that is when she opened her mouth really wide. It was amazing. They are some of my favorite pictures ever.

All in all, it was a great weekend at the in-laws and I’m so glad we got to see Jon, Amanda, and Abby. I will not let us go that long again without seeing each other.

Weekend in NY

11 Sep

So we have returned from the weekend at the in-laws. It was a wonderful weekend filled with mostly relaxing and yummy food.

Friday we left around 6:30 and pulled into the driveway at about 10:30ish. It was a long drive but we enjoy long drives together and always have things to chat about. I went to bed pretty much when we got there because I was exhausted.

my man.

Saturday we were going to have a yard sale but one of the neighbors was having a big party and they didn’t want to interrupt. So we ended up just hanging out. We went out to run some errands and grab some lunch. Then hung out around the house. His parents took us out to Olive Garden for dinner. It was delicious.

This morning we woke up, had some breakfast, and got ready to go. We actually made it out of there before our planned time of leaving….which absolutely never happens. We left around 11:30, in the rain, and got back home around 3:30, in the sun. There was a lot of traffic on the way home, which never makes a fun drive.

We got home early enough to get some things done…like a load of laundry and some work for school. And to have some relaxing time and delicious mac n’ cheese that his mom sent home with us. yummmm. Now back to work tomorrow…with our first full week. Hopefully I’m not too tired to make it through.

9.11. I will never forget.
