We just got back from a week visiting Grammie and Grampie Stanton in Boston. We don’t normally get to visit very often, so we generally try and fit a lot in while we are there.
Sophia and Sawyer had a really great time playing with their cousins, Travis and Drew. Uncle Damon made some Christmas trees for everyone to decorate. Plus Sophie even got to attend a basketball game that Travis played in.
The highlight of the trip was the Bergdoll Family Christmas party. Beth’s parents hosted the party. Beth’s family throws good Christmas parties that are full of fun activities, festive hats, and holiday singing.
Yesterday we hired a photographer and had some family pictures taken at a park in Whitman. The temperature was a little chilly, and Sawyer wasn’t exactly a model child, but I’m sure we got a few keepers. Hopefully we get the results in the next couple of days.
Today was an adventure getting home. Our plane was supposed to leave Logan at 11:30am. But after about a dozen or so delays, we finally boarded at about 4:00pm. Then we sat on the runway for an hour while the pilots “completed their paperwork.” Finally after a three hour flight followed by a two hour drive home from the airport, we made it back to Grandma and Grandpa Kelley’s house in Tennessee.
Needless to say we are looking forward to a couple of down days before we hit the road again later this week to drive to Missouri for a Kelley Christmas party.
