….and I’m back, after a week’s blogging vacation. This was the first hiatus I’ve taken since I began blogging nearly four years ago. It was a nice break, but I did miss posting.
When last we visited, I was stressing about the rain chances for our family reunion, which was Saturday, August 2. And… it did rain. So, for the second year in a row, we entertained in our garage, amongst the hoes, rakes, ladders, etc. But no one seemed to mind at all. And we doubled our number of guests from last year: this year, we had 18.
It was a very busy week. We enjoyed my niece, Donna, and her son, Connor, being with us. Motor Man and I always try to find fun adventures for Connor while they are here. (Contrary to what he says: we don’t just ride, eat and take photos.)
He sat in a hydroplane (race boat) at Motor Man’s shop:
And took a short ride (after he posed for this picture) in what may well be the world’s fastest “souped-up” golf cart:
We went to see “my” horses on the Outer Banks.
We had lunch (there’s the eating part again) with his Aunt Barb and Grandma June:
We also did a little beachcombing, took a drive out in the country and had lunch with my friend, Donna. (Connor may be onto something about us eating all the time).
Before we knew it, the week was over, and it was time to say good-bye.
Is it too early to start the countdown until their next visit? I didn’t think so.
