A Trip Home

5 Sep

A few weeks my sister mentioned she was going home over Labor Day weekend so I quickly decided to join her.

It had been a month or so since I saw my whole family, and it was a great opportunity for Charlie to get to play with my dogs at home. He’s old enough to be around dogs we know so this weekend has been a great chance to get him socialized.

Besides puppy playing, this weekend has been full of food, family and relaxation. On Saturday we watched my little sister run in her first cross-country race!

It was HOT. I felt bad for those high schoolers and did not wish I was running. I have been wanting to go running ever since we got home from the race though. I guess that’s what being around the cross-country course will do to ya.


On Sunday we had some friends over to dinner, with their brand new baby boy. Michael is only 5 days old!

Between puppies and babies I think my cuteness quota is full. I absolutely adore both of them.

Now its time to enjoy my last morning at home. I am thinking about sneaking off for a run before the rest of the family wakes up and has my mom’s famous biscuits and gravy. Then it’s back to the real world in Chicago.

How was your Labor Day weekend?

    I was hoping at some point this weekend that I’d get to sneak out for a run before the boy got up. Nope.

    Needless to say, I loved the weekend, but I’m feeling like a lazy bum and cannot wait to get a little more movement in my life today…
