Back home from Lycoming

We had a nice visit with Alex this past weekend. We left Saturday morning and ran over to Borders to get Michael a new release book from a series that he enjoys. He immediately dove into it and read it the whole way up and back.

We met up with Alex just before the football game. The weather was just spectacular. Sunny with some puffy clouds. The game was good and Lycoming won. After the game we drove back to her dormatory and took some goodies up to her room for her. the boys and I ran over and checked into our hotel and the boys ran down and swam in the pool.

We went back to Lycoming and picked up Alex and her boyfriend Jon around 7 and went over to Michael's favorite restaurant, Ichiban Japanese Steak House. It's the one where they put on a show and cook the food right in front of you. Very funny especially when the cook tries to toss food into your mouth to catch!

After dinner I took the students back to the dorms. Tyler was invited and stayed with them for the evening. He was able to enjoy a little bit of college life at the ripe age of 15. Mike and I went and got a coffee and headed back to the room to crash.

We woke up fairly early on Sunday and just read for awhile. We then got ready to go around 9 am. Mike and I went for a walk through downtown and then headed over to Alex's school. It was a 10 minute walk.

We met her and Tyler and then we all walked back to the hotel for breakfast. Good breakfast and great to have us all together again. Later we drove around some and eventually got back to campus around noon, said our goodbyes and headed home.

We got home around 3 and the boys immediatley when their ways. I tried to relax from the drive. Tyler went fishing at the lake near our house and was excited as he caught a large bass. See the picture. I started dinner and then he and I went back down there and he caught an even bigger one! He likes fishing.

Well tomorrow is another beginning to anohter week. Better get to bed soon!!
