I am shocked and appalled at myself. Not updating for almost a month? For shame. And it was a fun two weeks, too! I could have sworn I'd already shared my Colorado trip, but I guess I've been putting it off because I have no pictures. So this feels like a lame update. But still, it's better than whining about my school drama (don't worry, I'll do that later), so I'll just keep it short.
Last weekend I was planning a trip. Because I wanted to. I had the days off work... Brit has consistent 3-day weekends... I only have class on Tuesday... why the heck not? Originally we were going to go to California, but about the middle of the week I started really not liking that idea. So we went the other way instead.
Late thursday night we showed up at my in-laws house in Colorado. My brother- and sis-in-law knew we were coming, but the parents had no idea. Cynthia had already gone to bed, so we said hi to Gary and retired. Friday morning we appear in our pajamas as Cynthia is getting the kids' breakfast, all "Hi what's for breakfast?", and she predictably flipped out. I do wish I had a camera for that expression. There was hugging and crying and "What are you doing here?!" It made me very warm and fuzzy inside. I love surprises!
We spent the weekend just hanging out a lot. We went to the zoo on Friday with Cynthia, Cassie, and the kids. The zoo is always much more fun with little ones. Saturday we bought fabric for making scrubs (for me), and went to Women's Conference. Sunday we went to church and ... didn't do much else, actually. It was a very relaxed weekend.
I LOVED seeing everyone. I love my in-laws so much. I'm glad I can at least have SOME family close enough to go visit on a moment's notice. We'll have to do that again sometime. But maybe we'll tell them next time.... Or maybe we'll show up on Emilia's doorstep, instead....
