Indiana Family Visit

Posted: March 7, 2014 in Relatives, Summer Time, Vacation

June 26-July 10, 2013: We decided that it was time to go visit our Indiana family again since the last time Z and I was there was in the summer of 2011. Z and I usually make this trip alone as hubby needs to stay home with the dogs and work. Z and I always have so much fun visiting so this time we planned a much longer stay. We stay with my cousin and her family and Z gets some great cousin time in, and I get bonding time with H.

This visit we were able to have a family reunion over at my cousin J’s house. It was so nice to see family that I hadn’t seen in ages and Z had a great time meeting more of the family. We even got to shoot off fireworks at J’s house – AWESOME! Z even handled the giant torch to light the fireworks. He did such a good job. Another “first” during this trip was Z got to go to the farm with his cousin to see her with her cow. She is in 4H and does such a great job raising and caring for a baby cow. During our trip, Z and I got to spend the night at my Grandma’s house and we really enjoyed looking at old pictures of my mom and we got to visit her grave site. I even learned that my Grandma is an awesome artist – who knew.  And of course we did the usual stuff we always do when we visit; park, zoo, swim, play outside, stay up late, midnight snacks….the list goes on. But the best part is with each visit we get closer to my family!
