Andrew and Amy did the grunt work of finding us a house for Columbus Day Weekend, 2013. A seven-bedroom beauty was their choice; it had a table that could seat all fourteen of us for meals and two huge common spaces. It was perfect. A and A also did the organizing of who would bring what and who would be responsible for which meals. All beautifully done.
Unfortunately, the weather and my health were uncooperative. I started with a head cold the day we were scheduled to leave home (and it is still with me). And it rained every day. Most of the day.
We had a wonderful time being together, though, enjoying the big house, reveling in each other's company, and above all watching and playing with the children. I had bought new pajamas for all, and here they are following their Saturday night bath: (left to right) Eli, Nate, Aberdeen, Caroline, Sam, and Miles.
