I missed you all too. It has been a busy time since I last posted. The highlights: A day at the zoo with both of the Hoos' brothers and their kids and a visit to Cabela's - one of the largest stores I have ever been in. Amazingly, we spent more time at Cabela's Hartford location than we spent at the zoo. The tents were a highpoint for the kids.
LP just loved being with her cousins and didn't really care where we were. On the way back from Cabela's she fell asleep in the car (it was waaaay past her nap time) and the Hoos and I figured we would stretch out her nap by taking turns running errands from the car. Of course, as soon as we pull into the bank, our first errand, and the Hoos puts the car in park, LP springs awake, looks around, and says "Cousnins? House?". So much for accomplishing things while she naps! We went to my brother-in-law's house and she proceeded to have a wonderful time running her cousins ragged.
Saturday I got to spend the entire day in class. Yay! It was miserable but at least now it is over. 12 courses down, seven to go until I am done with my MBA program. Hopefully I will finish before LP graduates high school.
While I had a pity party for myself at school, LP and the Hoos had a fun day together: throwing rocks into the river, playing on the slide at the playground and working in the yard. She really is a lot like her Daddy; so much so that for her second birthday one of her presents is her very own fishing rod. Believe it or not, she is very excited at the prospect. I expect her to be a master bluegill catcher in no time.
Here's hoping for another great week - despite the crummy weather prospects in the northeast.
