I’m now back from a 3 day hiatus.
Over the weekend, the husband and I got to visit our family in his hometown. We always love spending time there; I may be a little biased I suppose, but I’m certain that I have the best in-laws on the planet. Here are a few photos of our little weekend getaway.
Playtime in the backyard:) Olive is the only grandchild so far, so she gets a LOT of attention. I worry about the day she’s no longer the only one…she will be a sad baby dog:(
One thing I love about visiting our family is that, like us, they love to hop in the car and just drive around, ending up wherever the days takes us. On Saturday it took us to a cemetery in this tiny little country town. Don’t even ask:)

And then dinner. The family had spaghetti with meatballs, my MIL’s specialty. I fixed up a giant pan of seasoned and roasted chickpeas, sweet potato, carrots and squash. Easy and delicious.
And as usual, the day ended with a great round of game-playing
On Sunday we went to church to hear my FIL preach and then sadly, we had to rush to get back on the road toward home. I never want to leave when we visit, but this week the sadness was softened just a little bit because I was so excited about what we were headed home to do!
More on that later:)
Hope you all had a great weekend!!
