Memorial Day weekend my youth pastor from my childhood was in town. Pete married us and his wife Cheryl played the music at the ceremony. Their daughter was my younger sister's age and they were friends. Pete and Jon happen to be very close in height, so Jon appreciated being able to talk to someone at his height! Looking at the photo reminds me of how tall Jon really is (he's 6'6") in comparison to Pete (6'8").
I had forgotten they would be here, and since they were with family I didn't think there would be time to see them anyhow. Well on Sunday morning I got a text on my cell phone and it was Pete. He and his family would be able to see us if we could meet up with them. So we got in the car to go see them for the two hour window we had. His daughter and family were with them too. It was so great to have a little relaxed time with them here in DC. Usually our time back home in Northport is spent swirling around to visit all our old friends (they all seem to still be there!). We felt especially privileged to have a chance for Pete's grandson and Caed to spend a little time together too. They briefly were both out of the stroller, and they ran with each other, ignored their parents and laughed too. What a treat.

Back in May before I arrived in NY, I stopped at my sister's home in PA. We went to the town carnival the night we were there, and we had a great time. It was a first for Caed! Caed actually rode the rides too! He loved all the ones he was allowed on (there were some that were fudged!) and did great holding on while on the faster ones too. Unfortunately I don't have much of Caed on the rides in this post, I loaded the pictures on differently this time, I've actuallyot to rotate them first. So rather then wait to get them on this post, I'll just do a second one. The whole K clan was there and it was so much fun, I can't say it enough! Thank you Uncle Jerry and Auntie Heather for so much fun!
Aden, Heather and Chantz
We were all on this train ride, that was actually closed the first bit we were there because of a huge fire they had from the generator. Luckily for Caed, they re-opened it. Is there something extremely scary about fairs like this?

This past week we had no power for two days. On Wednesday we had storms come through, and we made it through them. I went out for a run on Thursday morning and came back to my neighbors talking about the electricity being off. It was a hot day. My loving sister Kik suggested buying a fan.....unfortunately that doesn't work without the electricity! It made me chuckle though. Friday morning I got out to keep us cool, and keep mom and son happy. Finally at 3 am the electricity came back Saturday morning. Luckily, my wonderful sister April came over the night before to install the AC's in the windows (in the dark, nonetheless!) So we promptly but the air on when we could. It was an even hotter day on Saturday, so we felt really thankful.
Tonight I am still thankful I can turn on the light in the bathroom again! It's amazing how much you realize you need electricity when you can't use it!
