A Quick Trip to Hutchinson

We made a quick little trip to Hutchinson last weekend. We hadn't been up there since Thanksgiving and Abby had Girl Scout cookies to deliver. For some reason, every time we try to go somewhere someone is sick or gets sick. This trip was no exception... Ben was SO excited to go to Hutch so that he could see his best friend, Luke. As we were on the road, Ben stops playing his video game and says, "Hey guys, I brushed my teeth and got all excited and now my throat feels weird." Great! I started digging for the large ziplock bag that I keep in the van just in case someone feels like they are going to get sick. Jon kept insisting that he was fine, that it was all in his head, that he was just really excited. But, let me just say, thank goodness for the ziplock bag!!! The crazy thing is that as soon as he was done with that little "episode" he felt totally great! Crazy! So, onward we went!

"Cheese!"

Goofballs!

I think we figured out how to get Luke to travel well...the dvd player! He has been a horrible traveler since birth, but this was his best trip ever! Both ways! Yes, he is watching a video, but we didn't even have to turn it on until we were about 30 minutes away!

Abby passed the time by writing a story about Ben getting sick in the back of the van on the way to Hutch.

Ben being Ben.

Jon and I were able to go out on a double date with some great friends while in Hutchinson!
We had a great time having dinner with Athena and Randal at Carlos O' Kelly's!!

I don't know what I would do without this girl! She's awesome!!

Getting ready to watch a movie.




Luke likes to "share" your popcorn!


We had a good time, but as always, the time always passes too fast and we don't get to see everyone that we would like to! I'm sure we will be back before too long...

I always forget that Abby's a lefty. So did Ben get to see Luke? Glad you had a good time, but I wish it was me you were going to see. :O)

The pictures are cute. I love the one of Luke watching the movie without his shoes and socks. I think he gets that honestly. Weekends do tend to go by too fast.(even weeks do when you're on vacation).

Awesome pics, Jamie! It was so good to see you & Abby and visit even for a short bit. I LOVE the pic of Luke on the bridge...it looks like one that could be entered in a contest!! ;)
