Vacation Update – Part 2

Day 2 of the vacation went well. The night before we each drank a Guinness (my wife and I did, my daughter wasn’t in the mood for beer because she was asleep). Of course I forgot to bring a bottle opener but was able to fashion one out of one of the clothes hangers. My wife called me McGyver, which made us all laugh.

During the day we left our hotel room and traveled to my wife’s aunt and uncle’s house to attend my wife’s family reunion. This was the first time they were all able to meet our daughter and she really stole the show. She was waving to everybody, blowing kisses, laughing, and just stealing everyone’s heart. The amazing thing was she didn’t have a nap the entire day and didn’t get cranky. All in all we ate a lot of food, drank a little beer, talked with a lot of family, and had a good time.

Around 8:00 at night we drove about 15 miles to our second hotel, not knowing what we would find. When we got to our room we were pleasantly surprised. If our last hotel was a Buick, this one was a Lexus. Hopefully we will get a good night’s sleep, wake up early tomorrow, and drive home. Waiting for me there will be..

..the new Harry Potter book. One of the girls at the reunion actually had it there just sitting on the table. I was so close to it I could touch it, but will have to wait until we get home.
