Out and About
Tom and Anastasia have found and joined a wonderful church in Richmond, and recently invited us to come visit because Nate and Aberdeen were to be baptized.
We left home in the afternoon that Friday and arrived after dinner. On Saturday Joe helped Tom with some house projects while Anastasia and I entertained the children.
The church is beautiful. The baptism went without a problem, and much too soon we were back on I-95 heading toward home. It is always hard to leave these people; this time, we were cheered by knowing that they will be coming up to spend Thanksgiving with us!
restaurant that we like a whole lot, and decided to break up our trip with a stop there. By the time we were back on the highway, the traffic had diminished some.
We got to Andrew and Amy's close to our bedtime. Saturday was a full and busy day, with the zoo in the morning and the park in the afternoon and a yummy lunch and generous nap in between.
Joe and Andrew ran out to pick up a mattress -- Eli is moving into a big boy bed soon; his crib is going to be needed for another occupant in December. Sunday morning we played at home, and when it was once again naptime, we left Alexandria, stopping at a farm stand that we like in Middletown, Delaware, on the way home.
On the weekend in between, Sherry, Chris, et al. came to dinner (no photos available!). Chris has recently introduced us to a terrific new board game that is also available electronically for the iPad. Chris, Sam, and Sherry's two aunts played on Friday night, and we were astounded at Sam's grasp of geography and ability to read the board upsidedown!
The coming weekend holds an extra day for me, and I'm hoping to change the closets, do a wee bit of organizing, and then settle in for some serious sewing!
