Heading Home

Wow, what a great time we had! Let me try to recall everything...

Friday: It was rainy and there wasn't much to do. Found a Wal-mart and picked up a few things. Took a ride, got to see some amazing 'countryside'. I loved the different types of houses (totally how you'd expect to see New England houses). We went to an old, old cemetery. That was neat. That night we went to the rehearsal dinner. I didn't really care for the food much. I had Alfredo and I didn't like the creamy sauce. Oh well, I didn't have to pay for it so I shouldn't complain:) Poor Sweet Pea threw up there. Not sure if it was from the food (was she choking a bit), from phlegm or actual puking. Got to finally meet the new sister-in-law, Emily, briefly. Zach went out with Adam, his dad and the groomsmen and I sat with the kids and SIL, Rachel and did some laundry.

Saturday: Wedding day. The weather was thankfully nicer than the day before! The church was so simple yet elegant in it's simpleness. It was totally how you'd picture a New England church. Had a cool window with a Pilgrim with two Indians. The ceremony went real well. Everybody looked great. Adam was sweating! The reception didn't last as late as we'd thought but it was fun. We all got to dance a bit and see the family. Chatterbox was a bit shy when it came to dancing, even though she'd been looking forward to doing so. Junior Squirrel can bust a move and he was out there showing all he's got! SP fell asleep a couple of times during the reception. It was a great, great time. Got to 'visit' with Emily a bit more. Adam was not very nice when it came to the cake...

Sunday: We were going to go to Lancaster,PA with Jeremiah & Amie but decided to just head home. Took a different drive home. Went to the Connecticut coast. Boy it made me miss North Carolina! The drive in Pennsylvania was just amazing. I guess I didn't expect it to be so mountainous! Breathtaking! I wish we'd driven through like 2 weeks later when the leaves were colored!

Today: Drove from PA to Elkhart, IN. I can't wait to get home now! Last night Sweet Pea had a fever, today Booty Shaker does. Will it ever end? Have a doctor appointment for SP on Wed. as she can't stop coughing, especially when sleeping its like she has all this loose phlegm. Ok, she's calling me so I better go! Oh, we got food from some Pizza place- it was the best SUB I've EVER eaten!

I'm glad you guys got to take a nice vacation. Was the sub from Pizza King? I had one downstate years ago and have never had a sub as good as that one ~ I get hungry just thinking about it, lol!
