Overcome by the Took-ish side...
The Tookish side took me all the way to New England... a trip planned almost but not quite at the last minute. I think it was when Stephanie talked about kissing chubby cheeks on baby Anna that I knew I had to meet her (Anna... not Stephanie) in person, not to mention seeing her new house.
Then when she told me Sarah Clarkson would be visiting for a couple of days, I knew I just had to make my way East.
Travel is not easy for me but it was so worth it all. I'll share more pictures later (as I'm really not back for good for a few more days... resting from the trip as the Baggins side of this Hobbit takes over again). But I just could not wait to share at least some of our remarkable and wonderful trip.
It was wonderful to be together as a family again. There was lots of sightseeing (New England in October... what can I say?), tea and scones, coffee shops, books (and going "booking" as our friend, Sarah, calls it), church, late night chats, friends, and fun.
Before our trip, I told Stephanie the one thing I KNEW I wanted to do was to go to Old Sturbridge Village again. A trip planned for our first full day there... a good thing since it turned colder just a little later.
When looking through all the "Village" pictures, I realized there were only a few of David and in them he was moving! That would be David jumping from the wagon to the... ummm... what is that???
I'm certain Stephanie will say something about posting a picture of her before she takes off the "baby weight" but I think she looks fine.
The scenery was beautiful! Old Sturbridge Village is one of my favorite places to visit, especially this time of year. There was lots more to do, we only saw part of the Village before heading "home" (to Stephanie's house). I'll share pictures of her new home soon.
Oh... there was one other cute person with us but she was rather bundled up!
