I had an awesome time with Roz seeing The Black Keys in concert. Amazing show! We didn’t let the heat and humidity stop us from rocking out the entire time, although it looked like we got out of a pool when the concert was over. We spent Saturday going to the North Market, swimming in the hotel’s stainless steel pool (a surreal experience – I felt like I was in some science fiction movie) and then sharing a fantastic meal at Z Cucina. I dropped her off at the airport on Sunday and headed over to Dawn’s house.
The week was spent hanging out with good friends, playing with their adorable babies, and just enjoying each other’s company. Such wonderful friends, I am so thankful to have them in my life. Even though we are miles apart, I feel just as close to them as if we still lived across the street from each other as we did in college. I then drove up to North Canton to see Shawn’s family. It was great to spend a little quality time with my mother-in-law on Saturday evening while Shawn was doing his golf thing. (He won the Senior Cup! Woot!!) Sunday we visited his grandparents house for the afternoon. It means a lot to me to spend time with them, since I have no living grandparents. I always tell Shawn how lucky he is to still have them around. That evening we then went over to his aunt and uncle’s house for dinner and a quick visit which include taking us out on the lake in their pontoon boat- what fun! Monday we drove back to the Land O’Cheese.
I had a wonderful time on my little road trip, but I’m glad to be back. I’m looking forward to getting settled back into my normal routine.
