Family Time

My poor little blog has been quite neglected for the last week or so. But not without good reason...my parents were in town! So I was spending all my free time with them and many other family members.

One of the first things I did was go fishing with my dad! This is something we hadn't gotten to do in far too long and I wanted to make it a priority. It was so great just sitting out on a farm pond soaking up the sun and spending time with my dad. We even caught a few fish :)

After that, I was pretty much terrible about taking any photos of the things we did! But my mom and I made a couple trips to the city to do some shopping and having lunch at places we don't normally get to eat at. I got to see both sets of grandparents and both sides of my extended families as well.

My town hosts a huge Labor Day celebration each year. This year we even had a carnival again. We had them when I was a kid, but it had been several years since we'd had one. It was great seeing the kids play and have fun :) (again, sorry, no photos!) And Monday there was a big parade and a demolition derby, both tradition.

While there may not be a lot of photos from their visit, there were lots of memories made. And that's what counts, right :)

  9. It's great you got to see so much family!

    I've only successfully fished once. I caught two perch that were about the size of my hand! Yours are much more impressive.

  14. It sounds like a great week! There is nothing quite like family time in the summer. So many of my favorite memories are from times like these.

  16. I'm so glad you got to spend time with your family. Your blog is there on the computer waiting for you anytime you want it. Your family is only around so often so you need to take advantage of that time and enjoy it. It looks like you did. I however, am not fond of worms, so fishing is not something I would do. Every time someone would get a worm out, I'd run away. Not afraid of snakes or spiders, just earthworms!
