I finally had a chance to download the pictures from the past few weeks and will post a few. The kids spent two weeks in Atlanta in June and had a great time. The highlight of the trip was spending time with Nana and Papa-T and with their cousins, Liam and Pete. They are ready for another trip to Atlanta. Unfortunately, that will not likely happen again until Christmas. We are, however, looking forward to a week together in Hummarock, MA. Have you ever been there? It is roughly right about here (dark reddish area):
and is a lovely, seaside town, complete with everything you would expect to find in a lovely, seaside town. It is one town over from Marshfield, MA where Christian was born and it is a place that I quickly fell in love with. I was captivated the first time I visited years and years ago (maybe even before Christian and I were married; I am a terrible historian) and cannot wait for the kids to experience it. I am looking forward to morning runs along the rock beach, lobster rolls and friend clams, cool nights, and days that turn into night while I am sitting comfortably in a lawn chair listening to the sounds of the shore and visiting with friends and family.
We are all looking forward to the trip. I am particularly excited because it will be the first true vacation for me since our 2008 trip to Portland. I am sure you will hear more about it than you care to hear soon enough.
And now, a few Atlanta pics...
