Way off in the distance in this picture is Wolf Trap Light, and way off in the distance this weekend was the Chesapeake Bay Family.
Yes, the Chesapeake Bay Family who does not get out much--if ever--traveled out of town for a mini reunion of sorts.
Big Hair Envy arranged a wonderful get-together to cheer up Mental P. Mamma, who passed through Richmond on her way home to an empty nest after dropping her daughter off at school. Momx2, who lives nearby, joined the festivities which included a lovely evening of talking and eating and laughing and eating and talking and eating. We also ate, in between
The Chesapeake Bay Children spent some quality time with their aunt (Baby Sis) viewing their favorite movie, the critically acclaimed Norbit.
It was great reuniting with some of the Blog Festers, and I think it is time to start planning the next event, which sounds as though it's going to be in Mathews again. Remind me to get right on that after Christmas, which will be next week the way time is flying by.
Also remind me to talk about how uncomfortable I felt being in a densely populated urban area this past weekend. It's astonishing how reclusive I've become since returning to live in Mathews after spending my young adult life frolicking in the big city. I truly love living in this remote Last Frontier and would do just fine if I never saw another mall or shopping center again.
But I can't wait to see the Blog Fest Ladies again, and next summer seems way too far away. The Oyster Festival in November presents a wonderful opportunity for another gathering if anyone's interested....
