We were missing two from our little college group...Bekah (in Japan) and Becky (had family obligations). We missed you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We met in Galena, IL this year. It's a beautiful, quaint town. We did some shopping, some eating, some pool time and lots and lots of laughing. I'm very blessed.
|Me, Roxi and Mary Ann|
|Modeling some hats.......really, we're just goofs|
|Isn't that hat adorable on her?|
|Wrestling masks....I'm pretty intimidating, huh?|
|I think Mary Ann looks pretty scary|
|Roxi always has a smile on her face|
|We just can't seem to follow the rules. This is U.S. Grant's home. Wish we could have taken the tour.|
|We were on the phone with Bekah, so wouldn't totally miss out on our weekend.|
|Here's a view of this beautiful little town|
|This is the not-so-pleasant part of our trip. Someone banged up Roxi's car in the hotel parking lot. They did leave a note and hopefully take care of the damage.|
Weekend Vacation Part 2
Galena is only an hour away from my brother and his family and my aunt & uncle. I couldn't be that close and not go see them, so I headed over there on Saturday afternoon and came back home on Sunday. It was wonderful to hug my niece and nephew again and see how big they are getting. It seems like only yesterday I was holding those little bundles in my arms. I had a great visit with all of them. My sister-in-law, Jamie, reads my blog, so this is my shout out to her. Love you, Jamie!!!! (Scott too! And Donna and Rog.....can't leave out anybody.)
|Here's our goofy shot. It's much better than the good one....it shows our personalities.|
|Ethan's Birthday is Nov. 14, and I gave him is gift early. This was his reaction...I think he liked it! :)|
