We drove 2 1/2 hours on the Friday after Thanksgiving to spend some time with my in-laws. We got to their house at around 6 pm on Friday. The next day we took the kids to a local historical/tourist place and spent more than half the day there having a great time.
Oh, did I mention that the in-laws didn’t come with us?
They weren’t even at their house until Saturday at 3 o’clock. They had stayed Friday night at their cottage an hour away and spent Saturday morning shopping (instead of with their grand kids). They knew we were at their house, they just didn’t bother to come home.
We wanted to leave around 4 or 5 on Sunday due to the snow and heavy traffic. About 15 minutes before we left my SIL, her husband and their two kids finally showed up because the was a “mis-communication” about time. They live only 20 minutes away. They said “are you leaving already?” like they forgot we have a 2 1/2 hour drive.
I’m so glad we went.
