Had an excellent couple of days. Got a chance to hang out with Trina and Ben and was able to play with the boys.

 

I was able to get an advanced preview of their new places while they juggled contractors. Looks great, and I think it's going to be perfect for them. The boys will have a lot of room to play and Mom and Dad will even have office space to work from. Did I mention the ginormous garage and my abject jealousy?

 

Gabe's got a new thing- he sits on you if he likes you. He wants to be close. Christian and I got to make a pillow fort. Couldn't possibly ask for better times.

 

Now I'm getting back on the road. Following the scenic road along the coast, though I'm not sure how much I'll be able to see - it's pretty foggy. Headed south and I may stop in and see Ben at his office for one last brief visit.

 

Then onward to Columbus, OH by way of Fort Wayne Indiana (I'm taking a slightly slower route so that it's not all freeway miles.

 

Or, more to the point- I'm taking my time headed back.

Road tripping with my parents and Grandma to see more of the family and celebrate a first birthday.

 

Fall foliage is beautiful, the sun was in the sky, and Mother Nature seemed to be unabashedly strutting her stuff in the breeze.

 

Good day.

Back in Philadelphia - tired, cranky, and yet pleased as punch that the adventure was such a success.

Sooo tired and we have to get up entirely too early for my taste. Headed home tomorrow and I have to say I'm excited to get home

Beautiful mountains, vineyards, lush gardens, fine wine, sensuous roads, and good friends - this place is a slice of heaven.

Coffee encrusted filet mignon at Mosaic in Forestville- exquisite doesn't begin to cover it. The night just jumped upwards.

15 minutes into the ride and I've had not one but two flat tires. :( we did about 6 miles total after repairs.

Returning the U-haul because it's starting really rough. Unfortunately that means we're getting out of town really late.

couple of things:
1. dreamt of werewolves last night. surprising as this may be to some of you who know me - this was not pleasant at all. I was trying to escape them, and just couldn't. somewhat traumatizing.
2. apparently my snoring/noise making is enough to annoy the guys. I can't express how sorry I am about this.
3. I failed to mention it before now, but I would like to apologize to anyone reading this because I am going to be posting mostly in super small chunks and possibly rapid fire since I have no real connection while out here (aside from right now) - so I'm posting via SMS and have to keep the posts under 160 characters. I will likely flesh out the posts when I get back. they're currently almost like notes for myself to refresh my memory when I return.
4. my life is exceptionally good.
5. my friends are even better.

Sitting behind a really cute couple on the shuttle bus. She's a slightly big girl - but next to him she seems positively wee.

In the plane. We're headed out a little later than planned but that's ok- Mark and I had fun meeting people and telling stories.

Just 'finished' getting ready for California. One of these days I'll learn to get ready in advance. Flight's at 6:30 Tomorrow:)

We woke up late and had – you guessed it – a huge breakfast including blueberry & banana pancakes, fruit, and eggs.

Took our time getting packed, and finally left around 3pm. We rode for roughly one hour through Atlanta traffic (thank G-d for the HOV lane!) we stopped on the far side of Atlanta for a refuel and Mark realized that he had forgotten his drivers’ license back @ Mom and Dad’s. So, we hold up in a Wendy’s that was adjacent to the gas station we stopped @ and waited for Momma Edmundson, who had volunteered to drive the license out to us. Did I mention yet how much she rocks?!

It had started raining pretty fiercely while we were waiting for Momma, but it had cleared up by the time she arrived @Wendy’s. We said a second goodbye and were on our way again.

We continued our ride realatively uneventfully until we stopped at a motel in Mobile Alabama.
