So obviously, keeping up with this blog is not high up on the priority list. Well, actually it is; we're just not very good at accomplishing things according to the priority list. And, well, life is crazy. Hopefully we can get caught up to the present. So, buckle your seat-belts.
After our quick visits with family, we hopped across the Panhandle to visit home for the weekend before heading back to Maryland. We spent time catching up with friends at the beach and with sleepovers!
Since our departure, five babies had arrived in town, so we had the joy of holding and hugging them as much as we could during those three days.
All in all, the weekend was full of smiling faces and sweet reunions.
We left refreshed for our last few months in Maryland, but more ready than ever to return!
Easter brunch was brief, I mentioned, but I never said why. Well, we had an appointment to visit Florida via the Amtrak Auto Train. After inhaling our banana pudding, we hoped in the car and headed south for Lorton, VA.
We boarded the train at 4:00, and off we went!
A delicious supper was at 5:00 in the dining car...
And lots of laughter was found there, too. :)
Oh, and chicken.
And a little more laughter.
Then we walked over to the lounge car for a round of Bhonanza, also known as the Bean Game. Only one round, mind you, 'cause by the end we were all ready for some sleep. (Not that there was a lot of that, either.)
And by sunrise next morning, there it was: Florida. Good to be back.
