There was more that fun happened with our visitors than just gallivanting about New York City.
We spent a couple mornings at the arboretum to enjoy the splendid azaleas. We went there with mom, and were so excited about how beautiful it was, that we made plans to take the girls there when they came. The leashes were so wonderful, and the kids loved hiking through the brightly colored trails. I’ve loved coming to this azalea event throughout the years.
One afternoon, we decided to muster up some energy (after a power nap) and take the kids to a beach only 35 minutes from our house. I’ve been pretty nervous about taking the kids to the beach until now. And with all these adults, I thought it was the perfect time to give it a go. The kids were in heaven in that giant sandbox and unlimited water to splash in. They didn’t even care that it was ice cold. The umbrellas were (and still are) a HUGE hit with the kids, and even made it to the beach with us. We’ll be going back frequently, especially in the warmer weather. It’s so awesome to live in the place where you can be within minutes of beautiful forests, and sandy beaches. Again thank you Lili, for most of these awesome pictures!
We didn’t get pictures of feasting at The Alamo, indulging at Rita's, and going crazy at the Amish market. Everything is just more fun with lots of family around!
We miss all our visitors. We were so lucky to have Nana for a whole week and a half, and then the girls for a few days. We’re already looking forward to the next time we see everybody, whenever that day may be.
