Mom had mentioned going to visit her Uncle Benny (her Mother's brother) and some of her cousins. I told her if she would let me know when she wanted to go I would try to go with her. I had connected with one of her cousins on Facebook and we had talked by phone. I remember visiting them as a child but haven't seen them since. (Embarrassing, I know!)
So three weeks ago we went. I took off from work and we drove up on Friday. It's about a 3 1/2 to 4 hour drive. Mom had told me to bring along some of my music CD's to listen to but they never got played! We talked the entire time all the way up and back! (Imagine that?!) It was a great time!
My cousin (I won't get into if she was my 1st or 2nd...for simplicity I'll just refer to her as cousin) Lee Ann had invited us to stay in her home while we were there.
Later Steven fixed a wonderful dinner for us. I discovered Lee Ann even likes to scrapbook! Once the table was cleared of dishes she showed me what she was working on and well...it was late when we went to bed!
Lee Ann and Steven (seated) were the most gracious hostesses. The food was wonderful and so was the conversation! Lee Ann and I have committed to trying to Skype one another and share ideas on our scrapbooking. Now to make sure I have a web cam and download Skype!
Thanks again Lee Ann and Steven. I give the "Slater B & B" a 5 star rating!
Have a good one!
