Labour Day Weekend Trip

Gary and I drove to the Boston/Rhode Island area over labour day weekend to see his family, and we stayed with his cousin Lisa. One of his other cousin’s Linda and her husband flew up from Florida for a cousin’s get together on Sunday and stayed with Lisa as well. 5 people-one bathroom. On Sunday, 8 people-one bathroom. Not too bad.

Friday
Got in to RI, saw Mem and Pep (grandparents), Rita and Lucille, and Aunt Leona and Uncle Henry, showed everyone wedding pictures, and then drove back to Boston.

Saturday
Gary and Erik installed Lisa’s dining room chandelier in the morning, and Gary also installed a dimmer switch. Then Gary and I with Lisa, Linda and Erik took the T to Harvard Square and had lunch at John Harvard’s. All the cousins met later in the afternoon to go on a Duck Boat Tour (http://www.bostonducktours.com/) around Boston. We had John Lenon as our driver and tour guide. Afterwards we all went to Lisa’s to watch wedding videos, look at pictures, and have fajitas, rice, beans, a 3 layer mexican dip, salsa, sangria, and margaritas. We had a lovely hostess.

Sunday
We drove to RI saw his Aunt Kathy and Uncle Bob and then to see his Aunt Jean and Uncle Charlie who had a very delicious stew with bread and some home-made bannana nut bread. Afterwards we went back to his grandparents house and Gary replaced/installed a ceiling fan. Then Lisa, Linda, and Erik came by later. We had had fresh corn, fresh from-their-garden tomato sandwiches, fresh peaches from the farmers market, and a few other things.
