Saturday: Mazie played in her soccer game. And by played I mean stood on the sidelines and cried? We left at half-time.
When Nate and I got to DeKalb we went to Caribou Coffee for old time's sake. I can't believe that just five years ago we were sitting there planning our wedding. We then went to the pumpkin stand (where we got married!!) and met up with Nate's family from Michigan and his mom and dad. It was such a nice fall day.
Uncle Dave and his lady, Debra ... whom Nate says is "one fantastic lady"
She is the perfect match for Uncle Dave! (he lost his wife a couple of years ago)
Debra and Nate's dad building the pumpkin man
Way back there in the distance are Nate's cousin Andy and his wife Stephanie. Stephanie is the one that has the ministry to sick babies and their families ... she's amazing. She had her last baby three weeks after I had Freya and now she's due three weeks after I'm going to have this baby. We think Andy and Nate are in some sort of conspiracy.
Since there wasn't much room at the inn (the farm) we spent the night with Nate's cousin/brother (long story) and his wife. We were up until ridiculously, ridiculously late ... seriously ridiculous but soooo worth it!
It was a great weekend and even though we missed the girls, it was so fun to get away. It will probably be the last time for a while ... 23 more days!
