We stayed with my father. He was a gracious host and we enjoyed our visit with him. My parents were divorced when I was quite young.
Mike and I went to my cousin's wedding on my mother's side that was held at a beautiful home on Cape Cod. So wonderful to see family and visit with my mother and sister. It was also special to spend time alone with Mike.
The newly married couple
They used our birch log holders.
On Sunday I dropped off the two older boys so they could spend some time with some close friends they have kept in touch. Their mom and I are also very good friends and have kept in touch over the years we have left Massachusetts through many handwritten letters. She was also brave and came to visit us with her four boys earlier this past summer.
We enjoyed the day together in and around Concord. Such a beautiful town and just wonderful to visit and talk and talk some more.
She brought me a gift! A ball of malabrigo yarn in just beautiful shades of green with a set of circular needles and pattern to make myself a cowl! She is making the same one but in shades of blue. So much fun to think of her as I knit something for myself.
On our way home we met my mom and step-father for a brief picnic lunch as they hadn't visited with the children during our trip. They sent us home with leftover watermelon.
We arrived home in the dark, but the very next morning, Sarah and Abraham requested to make the chickens a special treat. They were just so excited to get home to see the them.
