{The weekend:}

Over the weekend Jon and I went up north to visit our family. Right now when we head up on the highway there is construction going on even though this highway was just worked on last year. I remember when I was traveling to work and construction was going on it would take forever to get anywhere but I was lucky that I was going in the opposite direction so I was not in too many traffic jams...

After visiting with our families we went to Cabela's in Hoffman Estates to use our gift cards that we received for Christmas. We were looking to get myself a new reel and rod for fishing. We picked out a great one but did not realize until we got home that it was the wrong one. Jon did not want to drive back that night to return it and get the correct one so we decided to just keep that one since Jon needed a new reel as well. Jon could not get over the yellow color of the reel. He kept saying that it was a good reel beside the color. I think that he got over the color since he got himself a new reel.
