of July 3rd...
when we take Bill, Felice and Michael to the Boston airport
for their trip home....
in not a handful of days we receive news
about my sister-in-law
and pack up heading to Alabama...
(Felice and Michael fly ahead of us and meet us there)
While there we meet Miss Maveana Grace ,
and have a birthday dinner for Felice at her Grandparents.
Felice and Michael fly back to Virginia on Sunday...
Michael and I take care of much needed business and head back on Tuesday..
Thirteen hours to Felice's house..
Appomattox Court House on the way...
no time for sight seeing..
but a few quick pictures in passing .
That night a celebration is in order!
One year ago to the day
they got to wrap their arms around Michael
for the very first time!
So dinner was had at the Chinese restaurant
The next morning very early we again head north...
in order to make a long trip shorter we try an almost new route...
traffic in D.C. was horrendous!!
and the new route while ..
maybe shorter in miles
was filled with small towns and two lane roads..
road construction and a sundry of other obstacles that turned the usual
twelve hour trip into one of fifteen and a little.
I would like to report that
Thibodeaux was a Champ on his first true
really long road trip!!
After a few days back friends and neighbors from home come to
Boston for Seminars and site seeing..
then I picked them up on Wednesday afternoon and brought them back north
were we had an evening meal at "Petey's"
A car was rented to finish their vacation...
It was so good to see Coach and Nancy...
and to meet the couple with them,
William and Sherry!
They spent Thursday exploring the coastal region of New Hampshire
visiting many light houses and such..
then on Friday they went to the White Mountains...
Saturday morning it was time to fly back to Alabama...
They were only in New England for a very short time..
I was remiss in taking out the camera..
while we were enjoying their company
So, I have posted one of Coach and Nancy with Miss MG
when she was brand spanking new!
I do look forward to any pictures they will share from their trip!
So, as I said before..
somewhat like the hash browns at Waffle House,
my thoughts and pictures of this posting are rather scattered..
but, please do remember..
they are smothered rather than with onions...
with lots of love!
Nancy , Coach and MG
I imagine Fairies and Gnomes living in the yard...
nap time all around
