{May 2015: my parent's visit} ~ first day ~ Ascension











My parents drove from MI to NJ to see us,
arriving the night of Ascension. 
That day Mr. Husband and I went to liturgy,
then home for a festive lunch,
with desserts given out at church for a lovely 
church woman's father who has departed this life.
Then a trip to lowes, 
looking at shelves, lighting, and closet shelving.
I worked on knitting wash clothes and we got back home
just minutes before my parents did.
After unloading my parent's belongings,
we all went to our favourite dinner for dinner.
It was a wonderful day.

How nice they could come for a visit. I couldn't imagine living that far from mom. It was hard enough when I was away at Western and mom was home in Bowmanville. But she often came out for the weekend.

I love trips to Lowes! :)

How wonderful to have your parents! We made a similar drive many times when I was growing up in MI to visit my grandparents near Philly. :)

Paula, My Mom lived away from her Mom and I started at age 16 by working away for the summer. However, I call my Mom usually at least once/day so that makes it easier. She's one of my closest friends now!

Oct Rose ~ Me too, Lowes is great! Neat about the drive! where in MI did you grow up??? (I grew up in West MI myself)...
