After the race, we went out to eat with some of my teacher friends. There were about 10 other teachers and their families that joined us. How wonderful! We enjoyed having time to talk with them, but as always, the time was too short.
Here's my good friend, Nichole, her son Ethan, and also her mom in the background. Ethan was playing peek-a-boo with Jordyn.
Here's Aiden holding Jordyn. He got to hold Jordyn when she was 6 weeks old. He does such a great job!
Ethan had a turn to hold her too.
Then ... back to Jamie and Lindsey's. We had plans to go to a Twins game with our friend, Josh, and Jamie and Lindsey decided to join us too! Off to the cities ... do you think we're exhausted yet?! Did I mention that Jordyn was doing absolutely great after a long car ride Friday night, stroller rides on Saturday morning, and being passed around to many people? She is such a sweetie!
The next two pictures are kind of small, but in order to get in the whole Twins team, I had to take the picture from far away? Can you tell who is the newest member of the Twins??!! :)
Unfortunately, we had to see a Twins loss. I'm telling you, it is pretty much guaranteed that if I am at a game, the Twins will lose. I have been to many games, but I have only seen about two or three wins. We had fun even though we saw a loss.
We finally made it to Dodge Center a little after 1 AM. Once we got in the house, Jordyn decided she was ready to play! She was not at all ready for bed. I didn’t blame her one bit though. Her whole day was spent in a car seat, stroller, or being held by 15+ people. She was not a fan of the pack and play on Saturday night, so for the whole 5 hours that we got to sleep, guess where she slept? Right in the middle of us. Did we really get 5 hours of sleep? That is pretty much a NO!
On Sunday morning we went to the church we attended and were members of in Owatonna. We had a great time, and again, we got to see so many friends. Justin and I were high school youth group sponsors, so we even got to see a few of our high schoolers. :) Jordyn got to meet Pastor Dean after church ... she loved giving him smiles!
After church we hit the road again. So far we've gone from Sioux Falls to Owatonna to Minneapolis to Owatonna to Dodge Center to Owatonna ... now on to Okoboji! Both of our families were in Okoboji, so that was our next stop. Jordyn slept most of the way, but she cried pretty hard for the last 20 minutes. We stopped to get her out for a little while, and she was hot. She had a fever and was miserable. After some Motrin, she calmed down, but she hasn't been herself for the last 24 hours. Do you blame her though? Her parents have had her in the car for about 12 hours over the last 3 days. What were we thinking?! :)
We are now HOME! Yay! Our weekend was fabulous, but it is always nice to be home too. I know that I am ready for my bed, and I am pretty sure that Jordyn is ready for her crib. She did not care for the pack and play any of the three nights. She likes to move, and she just didn't have enough room ... and add to that, teething, a cold/cough/slight fever, and no poop (yep, I just said that) since last Friday, you can about imagine how happy our little girl was last night. :)
She has been such a happy little girl though since we got home, and she is back to her own bed, her swing, her Exersaucer, and high chair. It's amazing to me how much a 6 month old knows "normal" and knows our house.
I believe that my book for tonight is complete. Thanks for reading. :) We're off to bed to get ready to start our work week tomorrow. Only 9 days of school left!!! (again, who's counting though?) Good night!
