My parents came and visited. We took pictures. Or attempted to take pictures.
This was on Sunday evening It was my parents’ anniversary.
We went canoeing, of course. MM was at school having a good time, so we just had the boys.
The funniest moment was when my dad fell into the water a bit after stepping on a sharp rock. Hmm. That isn’t sound funny when I write it out. But it was.
Dillon and I also got to go on a date. We put up a trail camera and looked for deer. That was my husband’s idea, obviously, but it was great fun.
And finally, in the evening we went to the natural bridge and climbed on top of it. MM had been asking to go to the “mountain park,” and I finally discovered this was the park she meant.
I love having my family come and visit me. I like where I live right now, but I do wish it was closer to my family.
I dropped MM off at school the day my parents left, and I asked my mom, “Does that tug on your heart ever go away when you leave your kids?”
Se called me later to say that it doesn’t, since she felt the same way when she left me.
