WEEKEND GETAWAY

Thanks to my good husband, I was able to escape for the whole weekend. I spent it with fellow blogging friends, (thanks a bunch Smart Mama!), played a thousand games of scrabble with my parents, ate 3 lobsters with my mom, (thanks dad!) took a few naps and got to see my TWIN BROTHER for a whole day!

We talked, we ate, we laughed and laughed some more and then we went home...
(thanks for the picture LL)
Do we look anything like twins?:)
Mi Madre - I just love her...
We even got Ben into a game of scrabble - nice frito fingers...

See you next month for OUR birthday Ben!

Looks like a wild weekend away, it's always great to take a break from the kids every once in a while, and always good to get home to them too.

Congrats to Ken and Pris for 47 years together!!!

I'm jealous--3 lobsters!! Love those little creatures. Had two at Cabbage Island in Maine in mid August. Pictures are just great and so glad you had a fun time with your folks and with Ben. Just what the doctor ordered. Is Ben a "cheeto bandito" like your Dad? I bought him some when he arrived at our timeshare in Falmouth. He proudly took them home. Glad you are doing so well.
Love from us both-Aunt Shirley & Uncle David
