Back from a whirlwind weekend in Virginia. It was a fast, but very fun trip. Realized I had not been down to see everyone in about 7 years!! Fletch has been down a number of times, but usually for camping with his brother or a friend – a guy vacation. Was fun to reconnect with everyone. I (of course) took both knitting and reading and (of course) did not touch either one!
We stayed in Norfolk at the house of one of my brothers-in-law. Went out to eat, took some walks in the neighborhood and basically just hung out and talked.
The wedding on Saturday was out in the country (Suffolk) about 45 minutes from where we were. And the temperature dropped dramatically. The reception was a big ole BBQ at the couple’s home. WINDY like crazy. But still a ton of fun. I never once took a picture! I think I was just too busy catching up with everyone. Plus everyone had their phones out snapping pictures the entire time. The photographer did get a lot of family pictures since all of Fletcher’s brothers and sisters were there…so hopefully some of those turned out.
Sunday we went out to breakfast and hit the road. Traffic was horrible. It was cruise day or weekend or something in the Dover (DE) or Salisbury (MD) area and Route 1, and 95 were both jammed with vehicles. Our trip home was at least 90 minutes longer than usual. On Route 1 we were almost side-swiped by a van and then again on 95 we were almost side-swiped by a big truck. Colin and Mailing made it home ahead of us and had enough time to shower, change and head out to a friend’s wedding at 4 p.m. on Sunday! We were just happy to make it home safely.
Now it’s back to a busy week at work and gearing up for my brother and sister-in-law to arrive from Colorado on Friday. It’s all fun though!
