On The Road Again

Instead of sticking around DC for the weekend, Alson and I decided to pack up the car again (we were in NC on Monday and Tuesday) and head back to NY for our last getaway of the summer.

We are going to my family's cottage in Northern PA on Friday and Saturday and playing in a golf tournament on Sunday. It should be a fun weekend!

We rationalize spending money on gas because we won't pay for much else the rest of the time we are in NY. My mom's new favorite quote: "When your dad and I were first married we didn't have much money so grandma and grandpa would always help us out with food and stuff. Someday you can do it for your own children too." Plus, it will be the first time we will be back in NY without a laundry list of wedding related things to attend. I know everyone will be happy to sit back, relax, and just enjoy each other's company. And who doesn't love hanging out with their family!?

  1. Aww, that sounds like a good weekend! Those first few visits to family after the wedding are always kind of strange because it's like, now what do we do?! :)

  2. My parents have the same philosophy. They'll pay for us when we come so that we'll come. They know we can't afford it otherwise. How does Alston feel about starting school? Richie just got done applying for summer associate positions for next summer. It just never ends!!
