You take your family for granted until they are a 9-12 hour drive away...let me tell ya. The weekend was good for catching up, but also consisted on some amazing food all cooked by my Auntie Lynne, who buys her butter in Paris and her Parmesan cheese in Italy. Literally. Need I say more. Dad brought Mom's dog Annie (I don't think he claims her as his own most days), who Lily is sadly and pitifully obsessed with because they used to be best friends when I lived there. Now Annie is a princess and pretends she doesn't remember Lily. By the end of the visit though, they were doing laps around the yard like it was the Daytona 500 and Annie jumped in the car with her as we were leaving.
We had breakfast at an amazing little Amish restaurant/antique store combo that was fantastic!
Best cinnamon roll I think I've ever had. Ever.
My sweet but sassy grandmother,Othermother. She's gonna kill me for telling you all this, but she's 70- hard to believe right? Now that I mention it, I haven't actually seen a birth certificate to prove this. She might actually be a 50 year old spy who pretends to be old or something.
Oh man. These three.
I'm still drooling over that chicken.
Adam and me, Dad (with Annie creepin in at his shoulder), Othermother, and Auntie Lynne. My cousin Landon and Lynne's boyfriend Ken didn't make it into the photo :(
Does your family live nearby or far away? How do you manage the distance? We are fortunate to live near Adam's family, so we really only have to travel half of the time. I don't know how people do it with family scattered all over the world!
