Wheels on the Bus, Detroit Marathon, Skates

This past weekend, we were fortunate to be visited by siblings from both sides--my sisters and niece from MN stayed at my house from the wee hours of Thursday until Saturday afternoon, meanwhile Pete's sister, Amy, and family stayed down the road at my in-laws from Friday to yesterday. I would post pictures, but I'm too lazy to search for the camera.

It was so fun to see my sister's again, and my neice is growing up so quickly! We were able to go out to eat, go shopping, do a little visiting, and coax a few rounds of "The Wheels On The Bus" out of my niece. It was fun to catch up, and I was sad to see them go on Saturday afternoon as they were here for such a short time. However, as my neice is at an age where she no longer travels easily, wanting instead to be busy and out of her carseat... they needed to leave at night, and as my sisters work/go to school on Monday... it had to be Saturday night or they wouldn't have been able to come at all.

But... the weekend promised not to be boring. Soon after my sisters left town, Pete and I went to his parent's house to celebrate Beth's 7th birthday! And on Sunday morning, I went with Amy & E. Peter, and Debbie to watch Adam and Jeff run the Detroit marathon--I had never been to a marathon and found the atmosphere to be quite enjoyable! :) Adam finished with a great time, and it was fun to people watch and spot runners we knew at the race. Congratulations Adam! Afterwards, we had a cookout at the Pete's parents... it was much fun to visit and see the nephews (and neice)... it's amazing how quickly kids grow up when you don't often see them! :)

And just when we thought the weekend had lost its steam, I had hockey (just an in-house league). And I got my first goal this season! :) We won the game 4-2; mine was the last goal. And no, it was not an empty net goal! I was so excited, and couldn't wait to come home and tell Pete! What an exciting a way to end the busy weekend! :)

Congrats on the goal.
We had a fun weekend too, but home is always nice.
