Heading Out

July 13

Today we spent the morning and early afternoon getting ready to head out of town for a family wedding. Relatives from near and far would be getting together as our youngest niece on my husband's side of the family is getting married tomorrow.

This morning we were greeted by the beautiful view outside our back door. The water was as smooth as a section of glass, with a slight mist arising from the water. I think everyone took a few minutes out of their morning to enjoy the lovely sight.

Another lovely sight was little Cara greeting everyone this morning with big smiles and laughs.

While the women stayed busy packing and got things ready to head out of town, we realized that the men were nowhere to be found. It didn't take us too long to figure out that the guys were flying, I mean trying to fly, their little airplane.

Here's the guys getting the plane out of a tree so they then could do some more flying. This scene, by the way, was repeated more than once.

Late in the day we arrived at our destination checked into our hotel rooms, caught up with family, and found a place to have dinner. After eating, we went back to our rooms, played a few games of wii, and turned in to get a good night's sleep before the big day ahead tomorrow.

The happy bride-to-be and her mother having a quick visit with Cara and company.

I have been so busy with work, that I haven't even been posting on my blog. My readers have been "hearing" about my trip through YOUR blog. Now it seems that you too have gone MIA. Am I going to have to pick up where you left off? hehehhehe!

Had a wonderful time with you guys. The time just flew by so fast. It is hard not to be sad about the end of our adventure, but what helps is to start making plans for the next.

With any luck, we hope to have you and Ameridad here on OUR stomping grounds next summer. Hmmm, where should we go? Visit Da Vinci in Milan? South to the Almafi coast? A side trip into Germany.......
