Finally, got off the plane only to spend a 3 hour layover in Minneapolis (everyone says they get stuck there) It was kind of nice to sit back and do absolutely nothing. Watched Breakfast At Tiffany’s, ate one of the most horrendous chicken caeser salads my mouth has ever encountered, and then ended up rushing to catch my flight that had been transferred last minute only to find out that it had been delayed another hour. Fun right?
But it was all worth it to be able to finally get to see my family when I landed in Milwaukee!
We grabbed some food from a place called Kobbys, I think. Then called an early night to get ready for the next day to have a self-esteem workshop with my cousin Jo-Jo’s Girl Scout Troop. We had an absolute blast, all the girls in her troop were so much fun and we had a blast with the craft at the end. Each workshop always has a unique set of girls and something to remember it by. I will forever remember this as the stickers on the face workshop because the girls started putting butterfly and duck stickers all over my face and then onto theirs! They were an absolute delight.
Jo-Jo, her friend Emma, and I went out back to take some pictures of the sun set and that’s when I started to feel a bit under the weather so I came inside. To spare the details,I ended up spending that night “Bowing to the white porcelain god” as my aunt put it. Longest night of my life I felt and we still can’t figure out what made me so sick but now poor Aunt Shelly came down with the dreadful illness as we were shopping today.
I also got to help out with Aunt Shelly’s special needs classroom which was quite the experience in itself as well. She helps out with the Special Olympics as well so I got to meet some of the participants for that too! They were so sweet and full of character, never a dull moment and always something going on.
It’s definitely been one to remember, hopefully nobody else gets this terrible, grotesque stomache flu during the remainder of the trip! For now that’s all the exciting adventures I have to produce from this trip…we’ll see how the rest of this vacation turns out! Until then…
