Last night we returned home from spending the weekend at my mother's house in Wheeling, WV. I can't believe that it's been a whole year since we've been there - I used to go every 6-8 weeks! This past year has been so crazy for us - from the hospital stays to just gaining strength again. My mother's the Missions Chair at her church, and this weekend was their third (or was it the fourth?) annual Missions Focus, so we thought it was a good time to make the effort to take the 4 hour drive (each way). It was an amazing weekend reconnecting with old friends and making some new ones. I'll probably write more about that later.
The boys did pretty good with the long drive, so on the way back we decided to stop at Cabela's (about 10 miles away from her house). No, my 3 year old isn't into hunting equipment. We stopped so they could look at the huge FREE aquarium! Both Alex and Harrison (who temporarily forgot that he desperately needed a nap) had a blast watching the fish. Alex was convinced that there was a shark hiding somewhere in the tank. Harrison was fascinated by the fish that kept moving, but he couldn't touch (and was quite perplexed by how the glass could keep them apart). I absolutely love free fun!
