Our only night at the cabin was fun. We had a nice dinner. Tacos and all the fixings. The food just tastes better there. Believe me. It's like a little piece of heaven. My mom also came over to visit. My parents live across the dirt road from us. It was a short visit. But it was nice to catch up. For most of the evening, my husband, my daughter, and I just sat and talked. We also listened to music. One of our favorite things to do there. The oldies are amazing! And my daughter and I were crocheting.
I have to say, that was some of the best sleep I've had in a long while. And the breakfast the next morning was amazing. My daughter and I also cooked a few things to leave with my parents. I know my dad really enjoys my tortillas and chili. And we made some desserts. Before we left, we sat and talked with my parents for a few hours.
On our way, we stopped at a casino. Honestly, we don't gamble a lot. This is really out of the ordinary for us. But it's summertime. And we're traveling a lot more. This casino also gives you $10 to gamble with for every visit. My husband and I gambled for a while. We were doing pretty well. But we got hungry. And we all decided to go for dinner.
This casino has some of the best food. And I'm glad that we stopped. We had a really nice dinner. It was BBQ night. The food was amazing! Even if we had to wait for it. And wait we did. There were so many people there. But like I said, it was well worth the wait!
After dessert, and watching some sports on their TVs, and we decided to head home. It was almost 8:30pm. By the time we got back, it was late. Nearly 10pm. And my daughter was getting ready to leave. She had to get back to her life. But we really had a nice weekend. And I enjoyed it. I'm pretty sure we all did.
It was much more than the road trip, the shopping, gambling, or even the food. It was about time with our family. Now that our daughter is grown, lives far away, and is on her own...it really is hard to find time to spend together. I'm glad that she still makes time for us. I still can't believe my little girl is all grown up. But she is. So I really appreciate these times together. When we can just be a family again.
