KC weekend

We drove out to Kansas City Friday night after work so we could finally meet our new niece, Kennedy. The drive out was a bit nerve-wracking b/c about halfway there, we hit a rain/snow storm that made the roads a little unfavorable and visibility very difficult. We took it slow and still made it to KC by 10:30pm, which wasn't too bad.

We had a nice visit with Liz's family, though. We all went to the bowling alley on Saturday to waste some time, but for the most part, we pretty much just hung out at their house and caught up on things. Matt got to experience a glimpse into both sides of parenting: handling a two month old baby and disciplining a 15 year old teenager that thinks he knows everything. He said by the end of the weekend, he was getting used to being around a baby that small and didn't find it quite so intimidating anymore. I was glad to hear it and felt pretty much the same way. It is going to be quite an adjustment fitting the baby's schedule into our own, but I think we'll be able to handle it okay. We're getting some good practice with Kennedy right now, though! She's a cutie and very chatty and active. If she's annoyed about something, she'll let you know and the faces she makes while doing so are really funny! I look forward to seeing how her personality grows in the next year.

We came back today and are looking forward to sleeping in our own bed again tonight. Matt goes back to work tomorrow, but I took the day off, since I have two floating holidays for this month I need to use up very soon. I plan on getting Jack in for his yearly shots tomorrow and getting our taxes started. Will work on laundry, dusting and filing as well. Then, if I have time, I'll enjoy some Skyrim. Matt's on it right now because I went out to get the grocery shopping done. That's fine. I should be able to play tomorrow.
