It rained in San Antonio today. We went out to play in the puddles twice!

This past weekend was bitter-sweet. On Friday I flew to Boston to say goodbye to my aunt. She was married to my mother's brother who is only 14 years older than me. The summer that I graduated from college, I lived with and worked for them. Not only did they put up with me, but they treated me amazingly well. It was a great summer.
I lived near them a few years later when I was in the Army and stationed in the area, so we spent time together often. She left my uncle and my two cousins, one is a freshman in college and one graduated from college last year and is in graduate school.
Almost of our family was there...my mom, aunts, uncles and cousins which was exciting since, as a large military family, we don't get to go "home" often. I have a wonderful family and I love to visit them. They know me and they still talk to me and ask how and what I'm doing!
|My mom and her baby brothers. We still call them "the adults."|
|My cousins, still called "the kids" although two will turn 50 next year. (Not sayin' which two.)|
Driving around that area north of Boston, I was fascinated with the beauty there. The clapboard houses (I just pointed out that particular type of house to my kids as we were studying the Revolutionary Time Period in the US), the winding roads, beaches, sailboats. I decided it is my favorite place in the United States. Ouch- and I've lived in San Fransisco and Monterey, CA!
