We visited with lots of friends and almost all of our family.
We got caught up in Naveen and it was so, so good.
Shaune was up to his usual tricks...you know, knocking our socks off with things like this: A surprise vacuum cleaner cake for the birthday boy.
Because it didn't seem right to let these years go by without acknowledging his love of household cleaning appliances.
We extended the weekend and snuck away to see a dear, dear friend. I needed to hug her again; let her know that even though things aren't the same as they were when we had all the time in the world to hang out, I think about her all the time; that time, distance and busy-ness does nothing to change how much I love her.
Deaglan learned how lovely and gentle Golden Retrievers are. (Maggie, Kathy's sweet, sweet dog, was so patient while Deaglan "taught" her all sorts of tricks)
Sometimes the best times come with hardly any planning at all.
