Well, I guess it’s not really my “sweet home” anymore but it is where I’m from (though I play a Canadian on TV…erm…I mean in my real life). I try to come home and visit every year but it’s really hard to make the time. After the debacle traveling over the Thanksgiving holiday last year, I decide that I was NOT doing that again. I also didn’t want to be away at Christmas. For some reason I thought the first week in December would be great. What was I thinking????? We missed at least 2 parties and I have no idea when our Christmas shopping will get done. Oh well…it will get done, it always does.
Evan and I had a lovely flight connecting through Denver. I quite like the routing b/c there are 2 flights of about the same duration instead of one really long flight and one shorter flight. Evan slept through most of the first one & then stayed awake on the second one except for the last 5 minutes. As you can imagine, he was super excited to have to get up and walk to get our luggage and our rental car. To keep him quiet, I piled the luggage cart up so that it could be a quasi stroller for him. He rode around in style while i pushed. It was a small price to pay to stop the whining!
Even though we’ve only been here 2 days, we’ve been busy! We’ve already visited my mom & my dad (they are divorced so that is two separate visits), Evan and Dewey went fishing (with my dad), I went to lunch with one of my bffs from university and we ate dinner with my sister, nieces & my bff from high school. Oh…and we went to the Christmas parade in my home town. Phew. If we keep up this pace, I’m going to need a nap soon!
And now….a few pictures (because I couldn’t resist!).
