Well now that I have had plenty of time to digest our fun little weekend and come down with a sinus infection it’s time for a post and a celebratory contest! Since I have been so blessed in seeing my sister I am passing on the good vibes. On to the post!
Well let’s see, we really surprised our Dad, which was great fun, but we agreed we will tell him when we are coming to visit from now on. No more surprises. It was great, we arrived at 10:30 in the evening and Dad came out on the porch to help us bring things in from the car. When he saw Jen and I together he screamed like a little girl and swore at us, which we were kind of figuring he would. In fact at one point we were guessing what he would call us. Basically it went something like this:
Well hello therAAaAAAEEEEeeeeEEEeeeeAAAAyou little bastards!
Which in Dad language means, “Well hello there, Golly gee wow! Look at you two!”
Here is a picture of us with our favorite cousin at the clambake, can you tell all of us are related?
Earlier that morning we swung by my Mom’s side of the family to celebrate my grandparents 55th Anniversary. Awwww, they’re so cute. Happy Anniversary Gigi and Grandpa!
We did lots of stuff at Dad’s, like stalk the chickens, eat peas out of the garden, and pick beans. Finn helped with the beans.
Travis, Finn, and I took a walk in the woods one afternoon too. Finn loved to look around.
Now for the contest! We had to make a side trip to the Monkey’s birth place to get a copy of her birth certificate. Using this picture as your only clue (click to embiggen), tell me what town she was born in. Leave your guess in the comments. All those with the correct answer will be put into a drawing and someone will be randomly chosen to win…a $25 gift certificate to Blue Moon Fiber Arts! Family members are not eligible. 😛 The contest will end on Friday August 22 at 10:00 pm eastern. Winner will be announced later that evening!
Enjoy and Good luck!
