But first, we made a quick stop. Since we were going to a wedding that weekend, we'd left some dressier clothes with our friends Steve & Hanna. We stopped by their place to say a quick hello and pick up our clothes. When Hanna opened her front door we were greeted by this smiling face:
Next, the four us went to one of our many “homes” to see Mom & Dad Barbier. Our jet lag was no match for our excitement to be home so we stayed up late catching up with everyone.
The next day, Chris’ parents went all out, as they usually do. We lounged by the pool, enjoying the perfect weather and ate lots of tasty food!
Off to the Farm
The next day, I drove up to see my Grandma and Mom at my Grandma’s farm in upstate NY, near West Pawlet, VT (My Dad was away on business so I missed him this time around). Most people travel around this area in the winter for the skiing but it is just as beautiful and fun in the summer. There are lots of great hikes and lakes to enjoy nearby including Lake George and Lake St. Catherine.
I was so happy and thankful that my Mom made the long drive up from CT so I could see both her and my grandma for the day :)
On Friday we were back in Boston and ready to celebrate Kim & Brendon’s wedding. That weekend we stayed with our friends Lisa & Dong. You might remember them from an earlier post about our most recent visit to Puerto Rico. They have the most adorable son, Zachary, who is probably the happiest baby I know.
The wedding was absolutely perfect. It was unique, really fun and very Kim & Brendon. It was a French bistro called Les Zygomates in the leather district of Boston. The venue had tons of character and oozed urban romance - black and white tile floors, brick walls, and large windows that perfectly framed the soirée taking place inside. I believe many a passerby was quiet envious that evening!
The ceremony was short and sweet with lots of laughs.
Our time home was too short, but it only makes us that much more excited to come home at the end of the year!
But for now, off to Australia…
