And now we typically only see each other using lovely Google Chat:
I was welcome by this lovely drawing, created by my (no-big-deal) sister, just because:
|If you can't read it, the sketch is joined by the Fulton Sheen quote "Mary was not full of grace because she was beautiful; she was beautiful because she was full of grace."|
We visited the National Infantry Museum:
(Intensity alert: I don't think I have ever nearly jumped out of my seat as much in a movie theater, nor have I gasped as much in 134 minutes. Ho.ly. Cow.)
However, I was much more excited when I saw this preview, for a movie about a book that I love, that is being made into a movie that I didn't know was being made into a movie and I am so excited...take a breath (!)...it looks so good.
We ate some de-li-cious food at this place:
Luke and Emily also thoroughly embarrassed me at this restaurant, but that is a story for another time.
I enjoyed so much our spending time together eating and relaxing in their home, which does feel so much like a home. (Good job housewife Emily!)
And then...we left Luke and the puppy behind and flew back to Peoria
Em was so excited to have cool air, less humidity, and trees with changing leaves.
Emily was having trouble maintaining control of her luggage...
But it was still good to be back.
I enjoyed my visit to GA so much, and also was glad to have (almost) the whole family back together for a few days. All the togetherness was wonderful, and we were sad to put our baby sister back on a plane. However, we took one more picture to document a first... something that we have always joked about doing but never actually done...
The three of us are now a blonde, a brunette, and a red head....feel free to comment with your favorite joke!
