Annabel went to her fifth state this past weekend: Massachusetts. I spent 13 years there, and it seemed strange to think my daughter wasn’t born there. We had a full few days there. Annabel met grandparents again:
And met Uncle Aaron and Aunt Chandra for the first time:
And her cousins Bodhi and Jasper:
And then we went to the Cape where she met her great-grandmother. We played Maher trivia and found out that Annabel is her 40th descendent – wow!
Annabel also saw the ocean for the first time. It was a bit chilly near the water:
We also made a stop to visit my hospice co-workers. I miss them!! I miss that work, too. Annabel met our friends Jason & Ricky and Elia & Sarah while she hung out at a Scottish restaurant. She saw her first kilt and watched us eat our first Scotch eggs. Annabel was so excited to see everyone she pooped right up her back and both mama and daddy had to change her – definitely a two person job.
Annabel really enjoyed this toy at Grandmom Anne’s house, and the rug too (she kept eating it).
We said goodbye to Grandpa Phil – his plane left when ours did but he flew all the way to Bucharest. We wish him well and hope he only runs in to friendly vampires.
Annabel was a bit fussier on the plane ride home, and she peed all over while Gabe was changing her in that tiny bathroom.
Bye bye Beantown… We all had a great time and can’t wait to see everyone again!
