I returned this week from a lovely trip to Rhode Island with the folks, Chris, Emily, baby Sammy, Melissa, Ian (Melissa’s boyfriend), the Studebakers (Emily’s parents) and our wonderful friends, Michael, Karen and Maris Vickerelli. I took the red eye out there and I think that was probably a mistake because I was not able to recover the way I usually am after the flight. I was sick to my stomach and light headed for the first couple of days so I wasn’t able to partake in the usual Valentine feasting that occurs. I did my best to make up for it when I was feeling better. The vacation was wonderful – lots of hanging out at the cottage, going to the beach, reading, napping, walking and sight seeing. It was great spending so much time with the Studebakers and we didn’t even have one single wrestling match over who got to hold the baby! Three month old Sammy was an absolute dream and is as cute as ever (I will let you be the judge).
It was sad to say goodbye because I won’t see my family for four months. They are all going to come out after the baby is born. I have been spoiled since Sammy has been born and have seen them once a month so four months is feeling like a really long time to me.
Everything else is going really well out here for us. Josh has been kicking butt on the race course lately and has been having a lot more fun on the bike. We traveled to Deer Valley, Utah for a national race a couple of weeks ago and had a wonderful long weekend. It is so much fun when he races in a cool town (Park City) where we can turn the races into mini vacations for the two of us. We are kicking around the idea of going to Telluride next month for one last pre-baby hurrah.
Well, that’s it for now, more next week. Love to all of you!
