We had dinner plans with my friend Mary that evening, so we left not too long after my family got up there. It was great to see her and I'm glad I got to give her her shower gift since I won't be able to attend her baby shower. We share the same due date, so it was interesting to see how pregnancy fits each of us.
On Sunday we just hung out in the morning and then attempted to have a cookout, except that the propane tank was out of gas! So, we just broiled the burgers and hot dogs. We left in the early afternoon because we had to make a stop in New Haven for work before heading home...and that was definitely interesting! We were going to try to get to this house to photograph it but all the roads were closed. Alan got out to take a photo of the road closed sign while I turned the car around. Well, this guy came out of his house right as we were leaving...and he followed us to downtown Ft. Wayne! As we were driving, I told Alan that I thought the guy in the truck was following us and he thought I was nuts. Well, as we were entering downtown, the guy pulls up next to us and starts honking and motioning that I pull over. I was scared out of my wits! I wasn't going to pull over and just call the cops, but Alan finally got me to pull over and got out and talked to him. I had my phone out the entire time ready to call 911. Apparently the guy has had some break ins and wanted to know what we were doing. When we go out and survey for work, we get people asking us what we're doing all the time, but I've never had anyone chase us down before. That was nuts!
But, back to the fun part of the weekend...overall we had a good time, even though it was a whirlwind trip. I hope we're able to go over Labor Day when we'll get an extra day up there!
