Thanksgiving Weekend with My Family

Tim and I had a wonderful weekend in the country with my family. There is not a lot to do there, but that never seems to matter because you always have good company around you. We got to see my cousin, Crystine who I have not seen in like two years. She drove in from Connecticut with her boyfriend, Ben. Tim and Ben seemed to get along well, they are both computer guys.

We went to the bowling alley for fish fry and hung out. We took some silly pictures together.

Simba had a good time too. He played with Crystine and Ben's dogs on Saturday. They have two dogs. One is named Killer and the younger one is named Kopper. However, Killer is very docile and friendly and Kopper bit Simba in the neck when they first met. He didn't hurt him, but it definitely startled Simba. After awhile they were okay together. Killer and Simba ran around the farm together. Kopper had to stay on his leash because he is younger and not fully trained yet.




Saturday my cousin, Christopher went hunting and caught two deer. He was really happy and made deer jerky out of it.

Later on, we went out to dinner and then went to watch my Uncle Bobby and Aunt Patty bowl at the local bowling alley which only has four lanes and no automatic scoring. They didn't win but that is okay.

Sunday We got to see my cousin, Amber for a little bit. It wasn't for very long because she was at a Wedding on Saturday that was out of town, but it was still nice. While we were there visiting, Simba got to play with their new puppy, Sydney. They were so cute together. Simba had his leash on and Sydney would grab onto Simba's leash and try to pull him around the room. Then Simba would just walk and Sydney would slide accross the floor. They reminded me of when Simba used to play with my childhood dog, Shadow. The roles were reversed then Simba was the puppy and Shadow used to drag Simba around the room when they would play tug of war.

I love going to Wisconsin to visit my mom's side of the family. It is so peaceful there and life is simple. Everyone gets along and has fun together. I spent all of my summers, christmas vactions, and easter breaks there when I was a child. I loved it there. I miss it now that I am an adult. I have many childhood memories there. I wish that we all lived closer to one another. I love all of you and miss you so much!!!
