Can I Extend My Vacation?
If I had it my way, I would be on vacation forever. I am coming back to the Springs tomorrow. I have been in Indiana the past 5 days and enjoying every minute of it. :) I have been able to spend some amazingly wonderful time with my dad and aunts and uncles and even a little time with my grandparents. It's been a whirlwind, but relaxing at the same time. I needed a break so badly. I have been pushing myself really hard with this new job and stressing myself out with so many other things lately too...this vacation came at a perfect time! I am just not ready to go back yet! That whole being a responsible adult thing gets in the way too much, so alas, I will be back late tomorrow night. :) I will give a little recap of my trip so far.
I got in Thursday afternoon (Thanksgiving) and dad and I went over and had Thannksgiving dinner with my Uncle Brian, Aunt Missy, my 4 cousins, and my Uncle David and Aunt Dana. Then we went and visited Dad's best friend Tony and his wife and 2 year old son. (Tony is like my 3rd dad, he is WONDERFUL). Friday we woke up, and dad took me to his 2 different office locations. This guy names Leonard who has worked in for the family business for like 40 years cooked dad and I this amazing lunch at the office. Then dad and I cruised around and did some site seeing all over the place. Later Friday night dad and I went bowling. I bowled a 114 the first game and a steadt 90 the next two. Dad totally smoked me. :) Saturday Dad and I got up and he took me to see my grandparents and Aunt and Uncle on my mom's side. They live about an hour away from Dad in Shelbyville. We were there most of the morning then headed back to Anderson and took a WONDERFUL 2 hour nap before having a nice dinner in Indianapolis with my aunt and uncle. Sunday (today) we got up and went to church then went out to lunch with Tony and and another friend of dad's. Then we went to visit my dad's uncle pat and my dad's other friends Barney and Sandy that I remeber from when I was a really little kid. We also stopped by my uncle David's house for a while after that. Then we headed over to Tony's house where he and his wife made us dinner and their two year old son Landon entertained us for about an hour afterward with his sweet dance moves. :) It was great!
It has been a wonderful time of visiting with wonderful family and friends. And not having to work for a few days has been great. I know I have an extremely busy next few weeks coming up at work so I am prepping myself for work mode again. But I sure am thankful for the great time I've had on this trip. I miss family so much living in Colorado. Colorado is wonderful, but it's tough having no family around. Luckily I have super close friends out there who are just like family to me who get me through until my visits. :) Coming home tomorrow Colorado. :)
