Just came back yesterday from a fun overnight trip to South Bend where the girls and I visited my oldest son Mike and some good friends! We met Mike and the O'Hannigans for lunch, then visited the bookstore and grotto at Notre Dame. Other than Lourdes France, I don't think there's any place like the grotto at ND.
Went to Mass at the gorgeous Basilica of the Sacred Heart!!
Then we were treated to a delicious pizza dinner with the O'Hannigans complete with delicious bread and chocolate chip cookies!! Mary, you're amazing.
After dinner Mike and his roommate taught us to play the card game "Bang." Lots of confusion, lots of laughs, and just plain fun with old family friends. Good stuff.
Kind of tired now. Trying to get moving but enjoying the reality that this can be an easy day. No school. No appointments. And I do need some rest....
