Today was a really fun day! See today my Mom and her friends were invited to a party up by the cities and I was going to drive her and the girls to it.
So I started out the day picking Ma up early and then picked up the rest of the gang. We were off!
The weather was absolutely perfect and with the sun shining – how can you ask for a better Sunday drive?
It would take us around 3 hours one way to get to the party, so of course we were trying to figure out just where we were going to eat. I thought I had a good idea for a restaurant, but found out that it was a Chinese restaurant and wasn’t the best suggestion. So finally we found a Perkins half way to the cities and pulled off for a sandwich and some coffee.
I couldn’t help to smile then and now as I’m writing this I’m still smiling just thinking about how much fun those girls had today. They laughed and talked all the way there and there wasn’t a dull moment ever in the car! They see each other a couple of times a week, so they really know each other well and are very good friends.
Now off to their friends house and the party. I’m not sure where the sun went because it rained pretty much the rest of the day. But who cares right? The party was inside so it didn’t really matter. Now when we got there and wished a Happy Birthday to the host, we soon realized that maybe we didn’t have to stop for lunch after all! There was a huge spread and even though we were still pretty full, we thought we’d grab a plate to eat 🙂
After a couple of hours visiting at the party some goofing off
and then some photo’s taken of the group we found ourselves back in the car and heading south to Iowa.
I’m so glad that I was able spend the day with these fun girls and for now I think I’m going to bed early! They sure wore me out!
