Summer Days

View from our terrace on a nice day, which I am hoping for many of this summer


It is going to be a busy summer for me. My sister-in-law who lives in Australia is visiting her family here in Larvik this summer. My other sister-in-law who lives in Canada is also visiting, and one week from today my son is coming to visit and meet his family for the first time. As many of you already know, I visited him for the first time last October. Now it is his turn to cross the Atlantic and visit us here in Norway. He has already met his sister, who traveled to Denver last year, but he will be meeting his brother and my husband for the first time. I just wanted to let all of you know that because I am busy preparing for his arrival, and his eventual visit, my blog posts will not be regular. I will still be blogging and posting pictures whenever I get the chance, and Minnie has a game of Gibberish still planned for this Friday. Have a wonderful week every one, and don’t forget to check back every once in a while to see how our family reunion turns out. 

Are you getting any exciting company this summer? Do you have any travel plans?

You have a lot of visitors coming! Know you'll have so much fun with your son. Yes, we do expect pictures. And I'm going on vacation this Friday so I will miss the gibberish.

A busy summer, but a fun one, too. This visit (family meeting new family)will form a milestone on several different lives. Treasure each moment. You can always share later. . .

Have fun with the family!

No family plans for me, but we've been traveling a lot since March. Just got back from a second trip to Arizona and am going back down again in August to move my son into his dorm. Then it's back to CA in September for a high school reunion and off to Ohio for a writer's conference in October.

My exciting company is here in the form of my younger daughter and her husband (see my blog for photos)
Good luck with your family reunion.

Have a great time with your family - family come first.

I am the exciting company this summer. I am returning to Florida with the boys to see old friends that I haven't seen in 6 or more years.

OF course, there will be many blog posts...

Family comes first. I envy you the family visits. Of course, I do not envy you making your home the way you want it for visitors!! Have a great summer! I will miss you, Roland

That is so cool about your son coming to visit you. For me, no travel plans except back and forth to work and no company coming either.

Oddly enough my son is coming home from Italy next month too! Yeah can't wait!
