Company Girl Coffee: Kicking Back with the In-laws – Shawna R. B. Atteberry
Aug 052011
 

We’re on vacation this week in Nebraska visiting my in-laws. We’re having a great time. Yesterday was my father and mother’s in law 44 wedding anniversay. We went out to eat and people they have known for years joined us. I got to meet friends My Hubby has had since high school. It was so much fun. Earlier in the day my MIL treated me to a pedicure, and they had massage chairs! I was in heaven. Here are my pretty toesies:

Blue sparkly toes with flowers! Squee!

We went to the zoo with my sister-in-law and her family Wednesday. It was a lot of fun. As you can see there are three kiddos, whom I’m calling Thing #1, Thing #2, and Thing #3 because I love Dr. Seuss.

Thing #1 riding a horse.

Thing #2 riding a horse.

 

Things #2 & #3 feeding the goats

PENGUINS!

Thing #1 in the butterfly tent. Thing #2 is to the left, also in the butterfly tent.

 

The whole family

I love flamingos. Don't know why, but I do.

Grandma finally got Thing #3 to look at the camera. She looked away from the camera all day.

 

I’ve also gotten some work done. I posted a review of an excellent book yesterday: Touching God: Experiencing Metaphors for the Divine. I really enjoyed reading this book, and it challenged me to be more mindful of where I see Godde, and how I experience her in my every day  life. I highly recommend it.

Today’s plans are up in the air depending on the weather. If it stops raining, we’re going to the county fair. I’m excited. I haven’t been to a fair in years. If the rain keeps up, then we’ll go see a movie. We head back home Sunday. It’s been a really good week, and we’ve had a lot of fun.

Not only is there coffee by the FIL provided donuts as well! Have a cup of coffee, grab a donut, and tell me about your week. Then go sit and have a chat with another Company Girl.

  1. Sounds like your having a wonderful time! I’m envious of the fair…I love county fairs!! Your toes look awesome(don’t you just love a bit of pampering!) Have a wonderful weekend!

    • We didn’t make it to the fair: rained most of Friday, and I had a headache yesterday. Oy all these storms going through the Midwest are killing me!

  2. Happy 44th anniversary to your in-laws! What a fun time at the zoo! I used to not like Dr. Seuss, but now I do. We missed the county fair this year because of other activities going on, but I heard there were a ton of extra fun things to do there this year….including making the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest hamburger?? I’m definitely hoping for a restful weekend, but it’s looking unlikely…well, it’ll be more restful than the rest of the week has been. =p Still fun though! =) That last shot is too funny because Grandma ended up not looking at the camera. =p hehe Have a wonderful weekend.
