this weekend was one of the best i have had in a while. james and i drove up to chico to visit paul. my parents and matthew met us there and my high school friend breanna lives up there so we spent the whole time with her and her boyfriend luke. add that up and it was a pretty big group.
we ate, walked around the chico campus, saw downtown chico, went to a yoyo museum where we saw the world's biggest yoyo [it was as tall as me], ate some more, reminisced, laughed so much, played games, got wet [it was raining], went shopping, and just hung out.
it was so great to see paul doing well and i know he enjoyed seeing us.
it was wonderful to visit with breanna! she is one of those friends that when we get together it seems as if nothing has changed.
the drive was soo long, about 7 hours each way, but the time went quickly because james drove the whole way and of course i never run out of things to say to him [probably to his dismay].
i am trying to hold on to all the wonderful memories, but school is making it hard for me to pretend like i am still on vacation. i am just thankful to be able to have had time to spend a relaxing weekend with my family and friends.
