The highlight of the month was a trip to Wisconsin for our friends' wedding. We stayed in Egg Harbor for a couple of days, and this was the view from a reception the night before the wedding. I took this with my camera phone and I like the way the sky is kind of fuzzy and washed, like a watercolor painting.
The wedding took place the next evening, and it was so beautiful. Our friends, Mary and Gary, reunited after meeting 40 years ago in college!
While we were in Wisconsin, we got to see Luke and Miranda and the kids. It was a very short visit -- just one day -- but we packed a lot in! We went to see Luke's new work place, visited a beautiful park near their house, had supper at a new brew pub, and that evening Siefer and I baked a batch of cookies. It was a lot to do, but we had to tide ourselves over until they come to our house for a week in November.
Other than our trip, my calendar is highlighted with appointments -- hair, pedi, dermatologist -- and dates with friends! My friend Pamela was in town, and she is the kind of friend who gladly gave up our lunch date to help me run errands for a family member who was in the hospital for a while this month. It doesn't matter what we do together, we always have fun and get in plenty of gabbing.
We've had backyard bbq's and pool parties and sandbox time with these two! They are big helpers in the garden, too, hauling watering cans and drenching everything in sight.
And, Dan and I have been filling up our passports this month! His is a "pint passport" to microbrews in the area. (He goes with his friend Rick, and Pam and I often tag along for a meal and/or shopping!) Mine is the "parks and rec passport" to our local hiking trails.
This morning, I'm off to find a new trail!
