This weekend we headed back over to the Shenandoah Valley to pick up Austin. Since he was at Mom's house and that made it an eight hour round trip, we decided to go ahead and just stay for the weekend.
We spent Saturday shopping with her. She took us all over Harrisonburg. We went to the Farmer's Market where we stocked up on bulk foods. We went to Costco to look at some things. We stopped at a few furniture places because we are looking for a kitchen island. She went to a store and got us a popcorn popper that I'd said I'd love to have (and I do LOVE it).
We then went to another Farmer's Market where she got us a cornhole toss game as part of our Christmas gift. It is the nicest one we've seen before or since. Really nice quality and much bigger than the ones you normally get in the store. We played a few games with it and I think Mom and I were the best of the four of us. I'm not saying the guys weren't good, I'm saying we were better. I am sure that will be short lived though because Nathan and Austin will play 24 hours a day until they get better than me. It's just how they are.
Nathan, who is notorious for hating any physical labor at all, did some painting for her.
While he worked I went outside to check on him. That didn't take long so I took advantage of the views from my MIL's yard.
