We left Wednesday morning and drove as far as Rick’s house. We got there about 10 minutes before he got home from work so we just let ourselves in. After Rick had gotten home and changed and relaxed a bit, we headed out for our evening. We stopped at Meijer to get baby food and diapers and baby wipes and then to Panera’s for subs for dinner. We had a picnic in a little park and there was also a concert (that’s why we went – for the concert). The food was good and so was the music. The first group was a couple who sang some songs from years past. The second was two people singing a variety of Broadway tunes. I really enjoyed both of them. Robbie played on our blankets and flirted with a couple of girls sitting near us and had fun climbing over the 3 of us.
Thursday morning we got up and went to work with Rick. His coworkers wanted to see Robbie, so we went and showed him off. We left about 10 after eating breakfast at Burger King. We drove until about 6, stopping for lunch and at a few rest areas along the way, and then stopped at a Holiday Inn Express for the evening. They had a pool and free wireless internet and that was nice. The 3 of us went and played in the pool for about 1/2 hour before settling in our room for the night. Robbie didn’t do too badly. I do want to get into some water familiarization classes for Robbie so he can get used to being in water. After Robbie went to sleep, Ryan and I just relaxed and chatted with our friends (me) and played games (Ryan) on our computers.
This morning got up and enjoyed the free breakfast at the hotel. We drove the rest of the way home – in the rain. We stopped a few times and made it home a little after 5. It sure is good to be home! Robbie had to go play with all his toys and check out everything right away. The cats were glad to see us too – pretty much met us at the door. Within an hour of being home we had the van unloaded, the suitcases unloaded and put away, and a load of laundry in the washer. We still have some stuff to put away, but it’ll get done.
Whew! That sure was a long 2 weeks to try and remember and write about. But it’s done. I may have missed a few things or gotten things on the wrong days, but at least you can get some idea of what I did on My Summer Vacation!
