Hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving! I had a great time with family and friends, and of course I had to do some major shopping Thursday evening and Friday morning (and yes, I did sleep from 7am-2pm on Friday).
Then today, my friends Rico, Annie and I went to Abilene, KS to see our friend Ana. We also met up with Ana’s friend who we’ve all come to love, Jordan. We toured the Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum and Childhood Home in Abilene, and also went to such glamorous Abilene hot spots as Taco Grande, Pizza Hut and Sonic. We also had the opportunity to visit the local park/playground.
Of course when one is as close as we were to a Braum’s restaurant you have no choice but to go. I tried a holiday flavor and it left me bitter, once again, that we don’t have one here in Kansas City.
This trip and a few others have shown me the importance of visiting friends at home as often as you can. This can give life to their stories about their houses, their families, and what they did back home during High School. Even if it means having to survive a small, old town for a day, you can have an amazing, eye-opening time!
Here’s a bonus picture of Ana, Annie and I on horse swings made of recycled tires in Abilene today:
Hope you all have an awesome week, and I’ll see you next weekend!
