I have been off the radar for the past week. My Aunt and Uncle were here visiting the boys (and me). They are originally from New Hampshire, but now reside in Florida. Whichever way you cut it, it was a LONG trip. They stayed a week. It was a wonderful visit. They were such a big help with the boys and it was so nice to see them again. It hardly seemed like 2 years had passed. Auntie and I had a blast shopping and eating out. Braden and Uncle Phil played with trains and watch some NASCAR.
I miss seeing that side of the family. I don't get to see them as much as I like. I also miss New England. Everyone here in Texas thinks that St Louis is "the north"... although it IS north... it is not "THE NORTH". I miss the trees, the mountains, and the ocean.... northern beaches are much different than their southern counterparts. I miss Friendly's. I miss home :-(
