Like I said the 4th was a lot of hanging out around the house. I cleaned up a ton of stuff out of my bedroom and stuff in the bonus room that I hadn’t used in quite some time. It was a really great feeling to go through some of that stuff and get rid of it.
Saturday, the 5th, my mom had to work. I was wanting to do so photography later that night so we met her down on the river and had dinner at Rocky’s. Before she got there though, Dad, Andrew and I walked the Big Four bridge because I had not gotten a chance to visit since the Indiana side was open. Nice walk even though it was a little warm.
After dinner, Dad and I went down to Ashland Park and were able to get some really cool shots of the Louisville skyline. I may or may not have tried to teach him a few things too. It seemed like he got some really good shots even if I didn’t teach him anything.
Sunday we got very lucky and mom didn’t have to go to work. We went to church and I got to see a lot of people I don’t always get to see, which was awesome. Fr. Dan kicked us out of church because we were talking too much. Then it was off to see Grandpa Marking for a bit with a stop at Aunt Kathy’s for some honey. We were home long enough for me to grab some lunch, check on dinner and grab my camera gear to head out to take pictures with some very awesome cousins.
I was in need of doing some portrait shots and these two seemed like the perfect fit. It was soooo awesome to get to spend a chunk of time with them while I was home. I don’t get to do that often so I treasured the time a lot. (The pictures came out pretty awesome too!)
Dinner that night was a collaboration and was incredibly yummy! Tacos. The company was pretty awesome too.
Monday was a really busy day but lots of fun. I started the morning off with breakfast with Ashley, which is always special time for me. I am lucky enough that I get to see my best friend almost every time I come home, which is awesome since I don’t get to see her the rest of the year. 2 hours later we finally left the restaurant and it didn’t even feel close to that long. Then it was home to pick up my mom and off to Grandma and Grandpa’s apartment. It was so good to see them, even if Grandma was having a rough day. I love seeing them when I am home. After that it was lunch with the family down on the Louisville waterfront side. It was great that Andrew and Dad were able to take a few minutes to come to lunch before I packed up the rest of my stuff and headed to the airport.
Having five days at home was AWESOME!
