Sometimes I'm Still a Kid

Two weekends ago (sorry it's been that long) my parents came into town for a long weekend visit!  Mom and Dad got in around 7:30 on Friday evening and we headed out for a yummy dinner at KYOTO Sushi.  We had a delicious plethera of a variety of sushi rolls and really had a nice time.  After dinner we made our way to Starbucks for some coffee to sip on while we watched the lights at Vince & Associates (a fantastic lighting display coordinated with music)!  Saturday we got up and around and headed out for breakfast at First Watch.  Unfortunately, it was the weekend before Jay's finals so he had to be up at the school studying.  I was so proud of him for being disciplined to study all day while I got to shop and hang out with my parents!  So we dropped him off at the school and headed over to the Plaza.  :(  We spent several hours shopping around and then decided to take a caffeinated drink to Jay (and enjoy one ourselves) so we went to SONIC and gave Jay a little study break.  After that, Mom and Dad and I went to Nebraska Furniture Mart to explore and shop there!  Mom and Dad found some dining room chairs on sale and we also found several Christmas presents!  After Nebraska Furniture Mart we drove across the street to Cabela's for a snack and more shopping.  We were shopping fiends!  After our long and exhausting day of shopping we picked up Jay from the school and headed over to Fiorella's Jack Stack for some yummy barbeque!  After dinner we rented a movie and headed home.  Sunday we went to church and my parents got to meet our friends and even see some of their old college buddies (the pastor of our church and his wife)!!  Once again, Jay headed up to the school to study and Mom and I took a nap!  So much fun.  Sunday night we planned to go to the Fork & Screen movie theatre to eat dinner and watch The Blindside.  It was such an awesome movie!  That night really finished off a wonderful weekend.  Dad and Mom left Monday morning for Nebraska to see a friend after Jay and I headed to school and work.  It was so nice to have my parents in town.  Now I'm ready for Christmas!
