What an amazing weekend!
Ethan, Taj and I flew on the two busiest travel days of the year to go to and from Georgia. They must have ramped up for the holidays because it was a very uneventful flight each way. And how nice to fly for a weekend and it only be an hour and half flight each way, definitely not something we could do when we lived on an island.
Cooking together with my mom was perfect. She had everything provisioned and ready so when I arrived, we spent Thursday just getting the meal together for our party of 13. Only thing I wish I had was pictures of how perfect it was. My favorite part was Nonny and Taj coloring the placecards.
We did get a chance to take a couple of perfect family photos (sans Leah and Casey).
My favorite is this one:
On Saturday, the Martens family took a road trip to Bishop ,GA to visit The Martins, great friends Mark and Shannon. Shannon’s family from Michigan were visiting and Ethan hadn’t seen them in years. Taj got to meet new friends his age and explore the outdoors.
Mark and Shannon have built a beautiful farm and its been amazing to watch the transformation over the past few years, each time we visit. It was also great to get our families together and spend some time with my step brothers Michael and Jamie (and Michael’s fiance Tito).
About The Farm:
Classic City Clydesdales currently has 45 Clydesdale horses, a donkey, a herd of Highland Cattle, pigs, rabbits, chickens, Guinea hens, turkeys and I’m sure I’m missing some other animals. The new barn is gorgeous, the grazing fields are magical, the back pond is serene. Did I mention it’s peaceful for the soul to visit this place?
Here are a few pictures from our adventures. Too bad my phone died midway through the day and again, no pic of Shannon and I together. Next time, I promise.
We finished out our weekend with brunch at Nonny’s place. “Lots of bacon,” said Taj. And the two of them got along famously. What a great weekend!
