Damien and I spent early August with my parents in North Dakota. I was terribly disappointed that we didn’t get an assignment to Minot so this was the next best thing. Damien was 4 the last time we visited so it was long overdue for some good, quality time with the family while Scott held down the fort in Virginia…and played a ton of video games lol.
Damien spent a lot of quality time with his Grandpa and became best buds. They wrestled, they played games, and Damien even helped with outdoor chores like raking leaves…for a wage, of course. He even asked to go over and work in his shop– so helpful!
Our big outing during the trip was to the dinosaur museum. I hadn’t been there since I was a kid, but I think I enjoyed it much more as an adult. I think we all had a great time!
We were able to schedule our trip during David’s week off from work, but he recently started working nights so we only really got to see him during the evenings.
The journey home was bittersweet. We didn’t want to leave, but missed Scott/Daddy. Damien still keeps talking about wanting to go back…so he can help Grandpa lol. I’m so very glad we went. Thank you so much to my Mom and Dad for always being so wonderful and making for an enjoyable, relaxing vacation.
