David had some business to attend to in Spokane this weekend, so we were able to make an unexpected trip to our old stomping grounds for a short visit. We arrived VERY late on a Thursday night (we left after my last student of the day). Josiah fell asleep in the car, but then woke up when we stopped at the hotel to check in. It was hard to get him to go back to sleep in a strange place, so I ended up sleeping with him out on the pull out sofa bed that night to help him sleep better.
On Friday morning, David went to work and I went to visit my friend Janeen and her family for a bit. Josiah played in their back yard with her son Neriah and they explored all the nooks and crannies and rolled around all the construction trucks that they had there. We had a nice lunch and visit with them and then Janeen took us back to the hotel where Josiah and I promptly crashed for a couple of hours. Following a nice, much needed nap, Josiah and I headed over to Cheney to visit my grandparents and Aunt Genny (David had to stay at the hotel and work). Grandpa Hal took Grandma Betty from the nursing home over to their house and we were able to visit there, which was nice. They both enjoyed seeing Josiah again as well. For dinner, we went to Red Robin with our friends Kim and Chris and their son Colton. Josiah decided he would throw a big fit in the restaurant because he wanted to go sit at the race car video game intead of eat with us. We think he was really just awfully tired still and so cut our dinner a little short to get him home ASAP!
Saturday morning, I headed out to go to the Liberty Lake garage sale with Kim. This is an annual event in the town where lots and lots and lots of people host garage sales all at once and you can just go up and down the roads to peruse all the various items being sold. I picked up some maternity shirts, some floor ABC block tiles for Josiah's room, and a Pooh & Tigger crib set for our new baby (due in February). The rest of Saturday was spent relaxing, as this was supposed to be a vacation too.
Sunday morning we woke up intending to go to our old church, but I felt very sick. I had a bad case of morning sickness and Josiah was exceptionally grumpy and fell asleep again after being up at 8:00am and he slept until almost 10am. We ended up going to church, but not until it was almost over (when I was feeling much better) and saw most all of our friends, which I was glad of! Following church, we headed home with a stop in Ritzville for some Zips food, and a stop in Ellensburg for a Mommy time out (Josiah had been fussing for some time), and a stop in Moses Lake for a baby time out (we stopped at a park and let him play for a while).
