Well, not yet. But we will soon be getting ready to head out for the long weekend. We usually head up to my parents' house this weekend to enjoy the last nice days of summer. It's a great time to reconnect to family, relax, and play in the pond before it's too cold.
My dad came yesterday to get Zachariah. So he's already having a great time with Grandma & Grandpa. I talked to him on the phone for a while this morning, and he was telling me about all the fun things he did and was getting ready to do. He "showed" me his bucket full of buckeyes, acorns, and hickory nuts he's collecting. (My parents live on a big property on a small country road surrounded by all sorts of trees, animals, and plants.) And he got to pick out candy that he's taking to my grandparents' house (hi great-grandparents) this afternoon for him and his cousin Blake (actually my cousin's son). I'm sure he's having a great time. And we'll be there in a little while to spend the rest of the weekend with him.
I do miss him, but the break is good too. And it's great that he has such amazing grandparents who will invest so much time in him. I hope that someday he looks back and appreciates that so much. I know I'm thankful to have such wonderful parents that have invested (and still do) so much time into my life too.
I'm hoping to come back next week (or maybe sooner if I get the chance) with lots of photos to share. And I might even have some video. (I just got a new Vado pocket video camera that I haven't had the chance to try yet.) I know you'd get a kick out of watching my son, the fish, swim across my parents' pond.
What are your plans for this weekend? I hope that you enjoy the last of summer!
