Visitors: here, gone and back in two weeks

That's right, it is visitor time. AKA: the northerners are sick of winter and are trying to escape it for a little while. This past weekend my parents were here and didn't get to see much sun or warm weather, but at least it was a bit warmer than Wisconsin. They got into Dallas on Thursday night after a 2 hour delay in Milwaukee where old man winter was coming to town. They drove about 3/4 of the way Thursday night and then got to our place on Friday morning. We just hung out for the day, they just enjoyed watching Maddie play and crawl around. Saturday should have been filled with baseball, but the rain and the cold made the day open for whatever came our way. We ate lunch, took a little drive, watched Michigan State Men's basketball, mom and me did some shopping, and that took up most of our day. Sunday we went to church, then it was to Katy to Katy Mills to find Chad's suit, it was a Christmas present from my parents. He ended up getting two, it was buy one get one. We did a little more shopping. Maddie got a few things, grandpa bought her some vans. Even Joel got something and he wasn't even with us. Then Monday we headed out to Conroe to check a couple of rentals out for Spring Break. That is when our next round of visitors are coming.

Spring Break is just in two and a half weeks. We are renting a place on Lake Conroe to hang out at for a few days with everyone. We will then spend some time around here and might even take in the rodeo. It will still be going on and since Ben enjoyed State Fair and all it's animals last year, we thought he might like to go.

The rodeo is huge down here. Might even be bigger than Summerfest, but we'll never know unless we go. So here's to cowboys, boots, and roping cows. Yee-Haw.

We took our honeymoon on Lake Conroe. We had a timeshare and it was really nice! Have a great spring break. I wish I got one!!
