Friday the 4th, Roger, Olive, and I packed up and left Massachusetts at around 6pm.  Roger had had a full week of exams that week and a full day of classes that day, so to say he was tired would be an understatement.  I drove about three total hours of the seven-hour trip so that he could relax and take a couple naps.  With all of our stops, we didn't make it home to Western New York until 2am.

Rog woke up at 8:00 Saturday morning to go get a haircut from his favorite place, and I woke up around 8:30 because my mom was going to pick me up at 9 to take me to Taryn's (my sister) soccer game.  I actually got to watch both of my sisters play that day.  After Taryn's game (they won!), I went home and did Taryn's hair for Homecoming, then went straight to Taylor's game.

On the left is Taryn at her varsity game (yeahh 6!) and on the right is Taylor at her college game (toughest defender I know).

And here are some obligatory shots of Taryn's corsage that my mom made and of her at the soccer field in her dress and heels ;)

On Sunday, I drove Olive to Roger's house around 11am and they left to go back to Massachusetts around noon.  It was a really short weekend for him with a lot of driving and I'm so grateful that he was willing to do that for me.  After he left, I went to a parade that Taryn and our cousin, Jenna, were in.  They were adorable, promoting the Dairy Industry and what not.

After that, I went to my Grandma Ruth's house to hang out for a while.  My mom, my grandma, and I went to a local ice cream place that also sells produce and seasonal goodies.  I picked out a few gourds there (the white ones were my favorite!), then went back to my grandma's house and picked some more that were growing in my grandpa's field.  I couldn't take them in my carry-on, but my mom's bringing them to me when she visits next :)  And can we talk about those teal pumpkins for a minute??  I'm drooling.  I think a little display of teal, white, and orange pumpkins would be the cutest thing ever.

While my mom worked and my sisters were at school the following few days, I hung out with my brother, Dane, who was home from school for fall break.  We took a ride with our other grandpa to go look at (and purchase) tractor tires.  We took all back roads, and it was seriously exactly what I needed. 

I also took the time to make my garland for my swap partner and make rolls for Taryn's soccer team for their dinner before their night game.  Monday night I went to the boys' night game and Tuesday night it was the girls' night game.  It's nice to say that both teams won, which is so awesome on their senior nights.  Roger and I tried to Skype for the games, but he said the picture was so blurry that it was pointless.  But it was nice to see his face and my little Olive!  Unfortunately, I don't have any photos of Taryn's night game, but if I get any, I'll be sure to update this post.

Wednesday, my mom and I ended up having to take my brother back to school because he wasn't feeling well and didn't want to drive, so my mom took the day off.  When we got back around 12:30-ish, we went to see my grandma so that I could say goodbye to her, went home to pack my things, and left for the airport.  It kind of worked out because my flight out of Buffalo was at 6:45pm (I got there plenty early at 4:30), and Taylor had a game in the Buffalo area at 6pm.  So my mom got to drop me off and go watch Taylor's game-- kind of a two-for-one deal :)

I got to the airport about two hours before my flight was scheduled to depart, but it was fine because I found a seat near a charging station, logged onto the wifi, and just hung out.  I also texted my mom and talked to Roger on the phone while he was getting ready and Google-ing where he was supposed to park and meet me once I got to the Boston airport.

The next photo is what I sent Roger and my mom right before I had to turn off my phone.  It was amazing flying at sunset-- the sky was absolutely gold.  Not to mention flying into Boston at night-- so gorgeous.  The entire city just glittered.

I wish I would have had a photo of Roger when I got off the plane.  He was waiting for me just outside of security with a dozen red roses.  I was too excited to see him... and now I'll always regret not having a picture.

So we drove home and I got to see my puppy girl and we played for a bit and went to bed.  It's hard to believe it's been a week already since I flew back. But, I'm so looking forward to my family visiting soon!  We have some fun things planned!
