Since last Friday, we have been in Buffalo visiting family. Annie has gotten to visit with a lot of family, including her grandmas:
And her cousin Maddie:
(Along with her Aunt Alex and Uncle Rob, of course). It's been quite fun. Last night, Uncle Rob had a birthday party, and there were lots of people for Annie to see - her Aunts Dode and Clare Marie, and some of her aunts' cousins. There were lots of people there, and pretty soon it was time for Annie to go to bed for the night! :) Annie's current bedtime is about 8:30pm.
Today we got to visit more with Dode and Clare Marie, and in the evening, my mom took us out to dinner at a cool restaurant in the West Side of Buffalo, called Left Bank. Aside from very good food, their chocolate espresso cake was pretty amazing. :) (My mom and I split it).
Tomorrow we have more visiting to do. We're hopefully going to see Aunt Mary, and then Uncle Al and Aunt Joyce. In the evening, Dode is throwing a Bon Voyage/Farewell party for Clare Marie, who returns to Cameroon on Thursday. She only comes back to Buffalo every 2-3 years, so we've been trying to get in some good visiting time with her while she's in town. The last time she was in town was in 2006, and a lot has happened since then. I wonder what our lives will look like during the next time she comes to Buffalo.
On Wednesday, we return to Boston and get ready for the fall and all the changes that will happen soon. To be completely honest, I'm dreading it. But there's nothing you can do but move forward.
