So Far......

I am having the best time ever! My sister picked me up at the airport and then we went over to my mom's to pick up my mom and aunt and we went to breakfast. I have missed my sister like crazy and she made me laugh the whole time! It's so good to see my mom and aunt too. Then after dropping off the old ladies...hee hee.....Jenny and I went down to my dad's. We took a nap.....it was a lovely, no children interruptions, nap...ahhhhh! We went to a lovely restaurant that evening where my dad spent more than I make in a week on our awesome dinner!! Oh all the rich food...I truly felt so spoiled! We sat out on the veranda and it was such wonderful weather...so beautiful. Yesterday Jenny and I went shopping...did I mention how much I've missed her.....and then we went to lunch at the Souplantation (same as Sweet Tomatoes for all you Utah folk). We do not have anything like that in Nebraska and I've missed it! We ate way too much and had to roll on back to my dads so we could take another nap....YES, two naps in two days....it was a MIRACLE! After naptime my Dad, Carolyn, Jenny and I all went to see Julie and Julia....Everyone must see this movie!!! It was so good that I clapped at the end!! Which, I'm happy to report, embarrassed my sister! I must add that I was not the only one to clap...I was just the loudest clapper. Then we went to Mimi's Cafe...another place we do not have in Lincoln....it was so good. We came home and watched one of the kids plays...I have them on DVD. We went up to bed at 930 and Jen and I talked until I couldn't stay awake any longer.... I'm still on Nebraska time and I was up at 530am...tried to go back to sleep but I'm just wide awake....
Today my dad and I are going to some childhood friends home. It will be so fun to see them and take a trip down memory lane. They both grew up on the street of my childhood...Achilles Circle.....and they got married. I haven't seen them in many many years!! It will be cool! Then later Jen and I will go shopping again (thanks DAD!) and we'll head up to my mom's later tonight.

I do miss my kids and husband....that being said...this trip is going by too fast!!

Yay for you, Kim! I love that you and your sister are so close (at heart!) and that you got to spend some quality time together!

I know Zack will be glad to see you!
