I’m back from my trip to Central Pennsylvania. This is my first time being back during Little League week in about 5-6 years. I need to time things better next time because traffic rivaled weekend shore traffic. I was not amused!
I had a ton of fun, though! I don’t think I had any down time except in the evening before bed. It was GO GO GO all week.
Anyway! Sunday was my ‘nephew’ Hunter’s birthday party (He is actually my cousin’s son, but they’ve always called me Aunt Pami. We’re really close.). I can’t believe he’s 13 already! Not to mention that he’s at least four inches taller than me now! It was awesome getting to see everyone that came! I don’t see my family as often as I would like.
Monday…. what did I do on Monday??? I actually think I just ended up hanging out and shopping with my cousin Wendy and the kids.
Tuesday morning was more hanging out with the childrens followed by Kaisen’s first birthday party.
Wednesday we (John, Wendy, Pyper, Hunter, Wyatt, Trinity, and I. It’s a good thing they have a SUV with seating for 7, haha) headed to Knobles for the day. We spent a few hours in the pool and on the water slides. Then we took the kiddos on some rides. It was an awesome day. I ate way too much junk and had a ton of fun. I’m sure everyone else could say the same.
Thursday, we all (same people) headed to R B Winter State Park to meet up with some of the extended family. They had a ‘beach,’ which was just a bunch of sand dumped by the lake. The kids had fun swimming, although the water was FREEZING.
As we were leaving, my brother spotted one of those Travel America RVs, or whatever they’re called, with the weird picture decals on the door window. He wanted me to take a picture of him sneaking up on them. So, I did. Little did we know that the ‘owners’ of the RV were standing right there laughing at us. The only one that spoke English was the kid, and he told Rodney that they charged $20 per photo. I couldn’t stop laughing, but it was embarrassing. I’m easily embarrassed, though.
Friday, I took the kids to the park for an hour. They had a lot of fun. Little Pyper even learned to use the slide by herself!
I then met up with Jamie. She was one of my two best friends in high school, but I haven’t seen her in forever! It was awesome getting together with her!
Trinity had a sleepover with Emily, and I picked her up bright and early for my Great Aunt’s memorial service.
While it was a sad occasion, it was really nice to see that side of my family. I haven’t seen them in years, and we used to be so close! They live near Niagara Falls, New York, and I’d spend a week up there almost every summer while growing up. Life gets in the way as you get older, I guess.
I stopped by my friend Stacy’s house for a bit before heading back to Jersey.
I have to mention that up until this week, I had never gotten pulled over for speeding or anything. I admit that I have a heavy foot, but I’m usually smart about it. However, I received two verbal warnings this trip: one on the way there, and one on the way home. I guess I need to learn to slow down. I’m just thankful I didn’t get tickets!
So, now I have to make a menu plan for this week, make a shopping list, figure out what I’m going to post on Om Nomalicious tomorrow, and otherwise get back to life as usual.
How have you guys been? Did I miss anything big? Fill me in, people!
