It's been a whirlwind week with my daughter, son in law and kids visiting this last week from Connecticut.
Ha, there has been absolutely no snow while they were here. While instead reports from there home is one of the snowiest in history. It defies planning.
There is nothing like the activity level of 3 boys to turn your world topsy turvy with spontaneous busyness. We tried to alternate visiting with active pursuits, but there is never enough activity for kids.
If we couldn't have snow for the kids to enjoy, the sunshine the was a welcome reprieve from the gray skies that we have been experiencing.
We visited the house that Melissa grew up in and showed the kids. It sits abandoned, vacant for a year now warning people to stay out. I'm sure there is a story behind it's gradual demise but we don't know what happened. But it is in terrible shape. Kitchen torn apart, junk everywhere. It will take quite a bit of work to get it ready for anyone to occupy.
I think I'll keep the memories I have of our time there.
