We had a wonderful rest of the week at the Big House! On
Wednesday, we had a special day with Coach while Mom worked and Lil went to
Thomasville. We went to the beach and then to the Raw Bar for lunch. It was
On Thursday, JuJu came for a visit. As is tradition, she
gave Lilli a book for her birthday, and it is so cool!
We both really enjoyed playing with it, and getting to spend
time with JuJu.
Although we didn't get to talk to her, we changed the
birthday banner in honor of Audrey's birthday on Thursday!
Friday was MUCH cooler (comparable to MA!), but that didn't
stop us. We had another yummy Raw Bar lunch and then made a final trip to the
It was too chilly to get in the water, so Lilli and I amused
ourselves by running up and down the beach. In the process, we discovered some
driftwood that made for really great wands (with some slight
"carving" to modify them)
And the sunshine was bright enough that we could test out
our cool moves by watching our shadows!
Amos was very impressed.
Friday was also Coach's birthday! Happy birthday, Coach!
We celebrated at the Tap Room (which included a brief but
fun visit with Mrs. Kathy and Mr. Mark), and then followed it up with cake and
ice cream at home.
We were sad to leave the Big House yesterday. After a pretty
uneventful trip home, we were thrilled to see Dad and Scout! We immediately started putting together
the Lego set that Lilli got from GG last week just before we left for FL
While Scout got used to having Mom back at home.
Today is Dad's birthday!!
We started out the day by working as a family to pick up the
leaves in our yard (which is quite an undertaking in New England), and then we
celebrated by going to Crocker Park and getting ice cream. (Never mind that
it's freezing and not actually ice cream weather!)
We imported the birthday banner from FL so that we could
celebrate Dad properly.
He cooked a delicious lamb dinner, Mom made his favorite
chocolate cake, and Lilli made a special present with her own gift-wrapping.
Happy birthday, Dad! We love you!!
PS - Happy birthday to Grandma on Tuesday!!
