Road Trip

Well we just got home from our weekend roadtrip. We went to Hartford, CT for my cousin's wedding. My Mom and Aunt drove to our house Sat morning and we all drove together from here. We left around 10:30am and arrived in CT at 3:30pm. It was a pretty easy drive-all expressway which was nice. We stayed at the Residence Inn Marriott-you wouldn't believe the rooms! They were like an apartment! On the first floor was a kitchen, seating area and living room, then you went up a few stairs (they called it a loft set up) to the bedroom and bathroom area. It was HUGE! We thought we had the wrong room at first, but apparently they are all that large. Gabe asked an employee and the building used to be an apartment building. I guess the layouts are all different, but size wise, most of the rooms are that big-or bigger. My cousin's room was 2 full stories-2 bedrooms and 2 baths. Theirs was really big.

So Saturday after we got in, we went to a comedy club for dinner with most of the family and some friends who were all there for the wedding. The headliner was hysterical-she was very funny. After that, a ton of people went to my cousin's room to hang out so we stayed there about an hour and a half.

Sunday we went to the mall there which was pretty big. The wedding started at 4:30 at a local park-I did a reading in the ceremony. Then the reception was in the restaurant that was within our hotel (also where the comedy club was). Everything was very nice. We had a good time. I was surprised at how many people traveled in for the wedding-it was amazing-people from GA, VA, NY, NH-lots of travelers. And my other cousin came who just returned from Iraq so it was great to see him and his family since it's been a few years.

Today we woke up, had breakfast in the hotel (free hot breakfast) with a lot of people from the wedding-mostly family. Then we hit the road at noon and got home around 5pm. So a pretty busy weekend but it was fun. Glad to be home and out of the car though! Back to work tomorrow-yuck.
