Last weekend I had a very nice surprise. My Mom and Dad and Sister, Heather surprised me by coming to Kansas for the weekend. Although things didn't go exactly as planned...Matthew and Ken had H1N1 and Matthew had pneumonia on top of that...we were still able to do some fun things.
The pictures below are on top of the Rock Monument in Pawnee Rock. From the top of this Momument, you can see MANY of the surrounding towns. The weather that weekend was pretty crumby, but it was still fun to go up there with Heather. My Mom and Dad stayed in the car--they were FREEZING and had been up there before.
While they were here, we drove them around Great Bend and Larend so they could see where we used to live and where we go to school and work now, as well as just to show them where we call home now.
They were impressed with the fast pace life Kansans lead...20 minutes at Wendy's to get 3 frosty's and a milkshake.
My favorite part of the visit was when we were just hanging out at their hotel and visiting while my Dad and I did a jigsaw puzzle together. He mostly rearranged the pieces while I put it together, but we were a good team.
They were able to go to church with us on Sunday and then Monday before they left, we went to Hoisington and ate lunch at a mennonite restaurant. It was a fun weekend and I cried when they had to go back home. Hopefull next time they come, we'll all be in better health and can spend more time together.
