We had a great time visiting the girls. Their new apartment is beautiful and fairly spacious. It definitely fits the girls and their needs. Just having the washer/dryer in the apartment is a huge convenience and bonus for them.
We went to the zoo. We also hung out at their pool one day. I’m sure the southerners all thought we were crazy but some of us got in the pool and played. It was mostly warm enough. When the breeze picked up it was very chilly.
Spending time with the girls and just being together was the best part of the weekend. We played games, watched football (YUCK), picked on each other. It was a good weekend.
Now someone needs to invent the transporter so we can get to these locations in less time. The fourteen plus hour drive was tiring to say the least. On the way back was the worst because we were already tired from being so busy. I did all the driving (partly because of my own stubbornness). At the last gas stop I had a hard time standing because my knees were so sore. Fortunately, I only took a day or so to recover.
Now we are back and trying to get back into the groove of every-day life. I feel like I need a vacation to recuperate from my vacation but my desk is already so far behind there is no way I’d ever catch up if I took off again.
