Fun Weekend

This past weekend was a fun, family weekend!! My sister Stefanie who lives in Georgia came home for the weekend. It was really nice to have all the sisters together again!! She flew in Saturday morning and leaves later this afternoon. So it was definately a quick trip, but I'm so glad she came!! It had been a year since she'd been home.

Mom & Duane picked Stef up on Saturday and we had lunch at their house and then went to our cousin's house to swim in the pool. It was a nice relaxing afternoon. Kyle and I had our last home Barnstormer game so we went to Des Moines for the evening. Our friends Mark & Kathy were able to come with us too...it was a fun night! Kyle dropped me off at Mom's house on the way home and we had a sister/mom sleep over! It was fun, but didn't get enough sleep and boy am I feeling it today!

Sunday we all went to church with Mom & Dunae in Harcourt and then back to Mom's for lunch! We had an all out summer meal....grilled steak, sweet corn, and strawberry pretzel salad!! It was great. We lounged in the living room for a while and then headed to the pool again for some more relaxation! Abby was so funny too...last time we were at the pool she wasn't very interested in getting in, but this time she loved it and jumped in numerous times!! We all got a good laugh out of it! It was a bit chilly 'cause the sun had gone under the clouds....we could see that there was a storm coming!! We got out when the lightening started and went under the awning part of the deck and it started to sprinkle a little...didn't think much of it! Then all of the sudden the wind picked up and it just started to PPOOOUUURRR!! Needless to say we got wet again! Only Mom & Duane hadn't been in the pool yet!!


Once we made it to our car....soaking wet, we headed to my house to get ready for supper. Uncle Kenny & Aunt Patty, Grandma, my cousins Christine & Brian (and their three kids), and Dad all came up!! We had a full house that's for sure! But it was a good time. We grilled out and played some games! By the end of the night I was definately ready for my pillow though! Unfortunately Kyle got called into work to close so I am sure he is super tired today!! I felt so bad for him. He is hoping to get off early today to rest up for the week.
