LP Dad had a 3 day weekend so we packed up the car and headed up to visit some friends in Massachusetts with a stop to visit family in Rhode Island. We had a great weekend and are still trying to get caught up on lack of sleep now.
Friday afternoon we headed to Rhode Island to have dinner with Uncle Joe and Uncle Allen and to see their house. LP made friends with Daisy, their little dog, who loved LP for all the cookies she fed her. LP also discovered Uncle Allen's harp and serenaded us with beautiful music. LP Dad and I finally got a chance to see the house, it is beautiful and I cannot wait to see it in the summer when everything is green and the fall when the apple orchard is full. We had a great dinner at a local pub/restaurant before putting an exhausted LP in the car to head to Massachusetts for bedtime.
We didn't get to J's house until after he had gone to bed, but she was happy to see Auntie Jenn and Uncle Sean. Once we got her to bed, we had a great night catching up and playing dominos. LP was up early the next morning, listening for any sign that J was awake. We headed off to a local indoor playground where the kids ran themselves (and us) ragged. Later that afternoon they did some outdoor exploring with their daddies and on Sunday we headed to a model train exhibit.
LP did not want to leave. She actually screamed and cried for the first 45 minutes of our ride home, she wanted to go back to J's. Despite the age difference they are great friends. They have a great time playing with toys or just chasing each other around the room. As LP kept reminding her daddy, he's not Baby J anymore, he's just J now because he isn't a baby anymore.
Auntie Jenn had her good camera most of the weekend, so I didn't take many pictures. Hopefully she will upload hers soon and I will post some of LP and J together.
