We had some priority things we wanted to do but we had the freedom to fit them in whenever we wanted to. One those priorities was to go to the temple. When your home temple is three hours away and you are somewhere that has them all over the place you must take advantage of it! It was really nice to be able to not feel pressured about time. The session we had planned on was full so we had to wait for the next one. Normally this would have made me nervous or even force us to change our plans but because time didn't matter I just relaxed and enjoyed the extra time.
We also went bowling (one of Keith's favorite activities). I know almost nothing about bowling but I still actually got my personal best score! (Okay, in the spirit of full disclosure I had only gone bowling once before as a pre-teen at a friend's birthday party. I got way below 100 which is a pretty bad score, so it didn't take much to do better than that!)
It was so great to just spend time together. More than any activity we did, it was simply the time together that was so wonderful. It meant a great deal to us. Thank you Granny B and Grandpa Joe for taking such great care of our Charlie and Jane while we were out playing!
