And finally, part 5 … Sunday evening and then a bit from Monday, before Matt and I headed home…
After dinner and a bit of fireworks, we settled back into game-mode. This time it was a table full of adults + Gage for some Dalmuti.
My oh my how Kaden adored my cousin, Noah. I don’t know that there are many 16-year-olds that would give such devoted attention and love to a goup of kiddos like Noah did. What a gift he has … a lasting gift he gave to my boys with the time he spent with them.
The game pressed on … it looks pretty serious, but it is really a fun game!
And then, the neighbor’s fireworks show started. It was only the 3rd of July, so I figured Matt and I would miss it since we’d be leaving on the 4th, but lucky us! They put it on a day early and we were able to enjoy an amazing display!
It was awesome.
The next morning, Monday morning, the actual 4th of July, Matt and I started packing up our stuff and moving the boys’ stuff over to my mom’s camper pretty early so we could hit the road. The boys were going to stay with my mom at the beach and then head to my parents’ house for the rest of the week as per tradition.
And he had some success. 🙂
The good-byes at the end of this trip never get easier, including the one I silently say to the Beach House, knowing it’ll be another year till I see it again. But there is comfort in knowing that it’ll still be there next year, like it has been for about 9 decades. And you can bet we’ll be back there again, ready to add more memories to the lifetime’s collection we already hold so dearly!
Thank you for coming along to revisit this trip. ♥ Have a fabulous weekend!
