Happy Good Friday, everyone. I have the day off today, so I finally got a day to sleep in and a few extra moments to blog.
I know, I know. I haven't posted at all yet this month! So let me sum it up for you. It's April! Which means spring is finally here, and here in the Midwest it's been creeping up, slowly but surely. We had a couple of weeks of nothing but cloudy skies and rain for a while. But there have been some nice days here and there, and we're finally starting to see the trees bloom and flowers popping up! This weekend is Easter, so we're hoping for nice weather for the holiday.
We haven't gotten a lot of home projects done lately, since we've been pretty busy during the week with work, and on the weekends. Trent was in Cleveland a couple of weekends ago for his cousin Aaron's bachelor party. We're headed to Ohio next month for the wedding, and can't wait!
His family all got together last weekend for the annual "Run for a Reason" 5k, in honor of Trent's cousin's son who passed away in 2013. Trent and I both walked, and each ended up medaling in our classes! I got the bronze and Trent got the silver!
Even though there weren't a whole lot of people there, we were still proud of our medals. :)
After the race, we all went out to eat at the Stockade in Galesburg and stuffed our faces at the buffet. There were about 15 of us, with some of Trent's Ohio family even making it down. It was a great time.
Wednesday night, we went to the Eric Church concert at the iWireless Center in Moline. We saw him for the first time several years ago at the fair, when he wasn't quite as "big" as he is now. And now he's "Holdin' His Own" on his own tour! Ha. Ha.
The concert was great. We both loved it and we had pretty good seats. Though, I don't think there was a bad seat in the house! His stage wrapped all the way around so he spent some time on each side, which was pretty cool.
You can tell he is all about his music and he loves what he does. It was a great concert!
Sunday is Easter, and we'll be staying around here again this year. Probably just going across the street to Mark and Sandy's for lunch and the annual kids' Easter egg hunt. It should be another fun weekend.
Happy Easter everyone!
