Part 3 - A Visit To Aunt Susanne's & More Visitors

On Sunday, June 7th after a long day of visitors and partying, we got up early, got the kids ready and took a road trip from Delaware County, PA to Newark, DE. Thank goodness, our friend, Dan's Mom and Dad lent us their Suburban to use for the week. Thank you! It really helped us out. We now know what we need to buy to fit everyone and anything for our road trips! Now if we could just scrounge up some money.......................all in good time!

Anyway, like I was saying we hit the road to Delaware for another food frenzy! I don't know about Nick, but I must have gained at least 5 lbs. on this trip! We got to my Aunt Susanne & Uncle John's at about 11:30am. What did she have for us to eat for lunch?......Hoagies! Yummy! Some people call them Submarine sandwiches....whatever you want to call them, no one makes them as good as they do in the Northeast. Visitors started arriving around 3:30 pm or so.

There were many other visitors, but somehow I didn't get every one's pictures....I think I actually relaxed a little bit, sat down, and had a few uninterrupted conversations. I am sad that I missed my other cousin Kyle (Dan & Sean's brother). He was away for the week. Congrats to him for having a great year at Virginia Tech and congrats to Dan for his graduation from Nursing School!
Great Uncle John, Great Aunt Susanne, & the Kids

We had a great time! Thank you John & Susanne for your hospitality and food. Thank you for having us overnight and for letting us take a morning snooze! We miss you already!

On June 9th, we took a trip over to visit my friend, Anna's parents. Her mom recently had surgery and was not able to travel to see us, so we decided to go and see her! Alicia and Sophia came along for one last visit.

June 10th we had a day of rest and not many visitors. I think my camera battery was dead and needed to be charged at this time. We were back up and running on the 11th. My cousin Danielle brought my Grandmother over for another visit.

Sarah is very sleepy, but fighting it!

Daddy & Luke had no problem taking a nap before our visitors came!

Grandmom with who else, Ava! Are you seeing a pattern?

The end of our trip is near. Stay tuned for Part 4 - More Visitors, A Trip to New Jersey, and The Last Day.

I prefer to break new ground, but it gets harder and harder with the
territory that's already been walked on. See the link below for more info.
