Sorry for my absence last week, but I took an impromptu trip back home to visit my family in Minnesota. It was my Dad’s birthday and my oldest nephew, Andy, was starting his freshman year of college, so it just felt like I needed to be there. Generally, I am not a very impulsive person, especially when it comes to something like travel. But I had the miles to take me home sweet home, so I did it. And it was a really nice break.
As I mentioned on Monday, my family came to visit me at the end of May. My parents and my brother’s family have all visited me before but never together, so it was a lot of people at one time. It was overwhelming and awesome. 🙂 Max wasn’t sure what to think, although he sure enjoyed going outside on the patio with my Mom. I rarely allow him to do this, so it was a real treat. We packed a lot into a week and hopefully everyone had fun. It can be hard to plan with so many people with diverse tastes, but I like to think we nailed it!
