In just a few hours I’ll be heading to the airport to pick up my mom and one of my younger sisters. I am so excited to see them! I haven’t been able to see anyone from my side of the family in over a year, so this is a big deal for me. Their flight gets in just before 1pm, and I have lots of fun things planned for this week, like:
- Going to Newport, RI to tour the mansions, do the Cliff Walk, and have lunch at the Castle Inn Resort
- Taking the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard to shop and ride bikes around the island
- Going into Boston and walking around, shopping, maybe doing the Freedom Trail
- And just showing them around our town, Chris’ college, and where I used to work
They’ll be driving back with us to Indiana (where they’re from) on Friday. Yikes – I cannot believe that we are moving in just 5 days! I have basically all of the packing done (thanks largely to Chris, who was a huge help after my mini-meltdown) and all we will need to do is load up the truck and pack some last minute odds-and-ends. I’m really grateful that I have such a wonderful family who’s willing to fly out here and help us with the move, including driving over 15 1/2 hours all in one day. Gulp. Man, do I owe them!
I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures of our adventures and will probably post a few sometime this week. For the most part, however, I’ll be MIA till we get to Indiana. Have a great week, everyone!
