This past weekend, the family headed back to Ohio. We were celebrating my dad's 87th birthday. We rented a van to make the trip easier for House. He was still having alot of post surgery pain and needed to stay fairly quiet for the healing around the Stim.

As always, the highlight of the weekend was eating. Hamburgers and Old fashioned sugar cream pie was on the lunch menu. The birthday dinner was Fried chicken. The following morning was Bob Evan's with my cousins.

When we go back to Ohio, it feels good to return to our roots. Everything is so laid back and relaxed. Any troubles are left 285 miles behind.

I find it hard to believe that the time passed so quickly. I did not workout at all just enjoyed. I have alot workouts in my future.

Waddling back in Chicagoland ....

Happy Birthday to your Dad!

How often does your dad turn 87? The food sounds really good and why not splurge for your Dad's birthday, anyway? We don't have Bob Evan's here... It has to be one of the best places for breakfast.

I hope your husband continues to heal. I was wondering how he was doing.

Take care.

Yes, plenty of workouts to come. Glad you enjoyed a nice birthday with your dad. Hope your hubby heals up fast from the surgery.

Happy birthday, Dad Waddler! (Would that be daddler?)

I love going to Ohio. It's so relaxing and just a different way of life.

I'm glad you got to go and enjoy the family time.
