Friday, we ate breakfast and then went on a wine tour.
Friday evening, the other 2 sisters-in-law came. My sister that gives me stuff & I made dinner. Or rather, she made dinner & I threw a bag of salad in a bowl! I did help her put them together, though.
Saturday morning, more eating, followed by shopping. There's an outlet there, so we spent a few hours there. We all started in Sketchers, then everybody went their own way, depending on what we were looking for. Just about everybody had something they needed to get, so I don't think any of us were wandering aimlessly.
When we got back to the house, we turned on the tv & watched football games. We Skyped with our sister who is working on her Ph.D. in Tx. She was at a cousin's tailgate party, so it was pretty quick before we lost the connection. We tried again after she got back to her apartment, but I couldn't get any sound.
Sunday is always a sad day because that's when we go home. But not before going out to eat! :)
We almost always go to The Apple Barn to eat before we leave. We had our name on the list and sat around for about 30 minutes chatting.
Pointing to how high the river was...it rained most of the weekend.
I'm glad we waited until October to go this year. We had a "parent conference day" on Friday, but we weren't required to be there as long as we document 6 hours of parent conferences. Plus, it was cooler. Plus, we got to see cute things like this:
Last year, Mama's death was still very fresh and we had just been together 6 weeks prior to our weekend. (We went in early Sept. last year.) We had some nice talks and shared sweet memories. Even though I may have been accused of being spoiled, it was a fantastic weekend!
