I went home to New Brunswick on the 26th and spent 5 nights with my Dad and Ivy. It was really nice to get home for a visit. I haven't spent more than a weekend at home in a few years, so this trip was really great.
I headed home on Thursday night (no air conditioning in our car, so it's much nicer to drive in the evening) and then Becca came to visit on Monday for a couple of nights.
So, here's a brief photo story of my time in St. George:
1. I went to a wedding.
My cousin, Brian, got married. My aunt Heather made the cake:
When I grow up, I want to be just like my Aunties. This is the same recipe that another of my aunts made for another family wedding. The cake was chocolate, with chocolate raspberry ganache and the icing was white chocolate. My aunt made the sugared pansies. They were delicious too!
2. I went to Mardens in Calais, Maine, with Becca.
We spent three hours combing through the fabric and all the other aisles. I almost made some ill-advised purchases:
3. I ate ice cream.
No trip to Calais is complete without a trip to the Irving for Ben and Jerry's. I'm not sure who I look more like: Ben, Jerry or the Cows on the container.
Don't let Becca's smug face fool you - she ate it too. See? There are two spoons.
4. We had a sleepover with my nieces... and we did pedicures!
5. I teased my father about wearing plastic shoes:
He says they are for "around the boat" but I think this retirement thing has just pushed him over the edge.
6. We went boating:
(It's just too bad that the girls didn't like Becca.)
7. I met Tozer, Becca and Troy's Norwegian Elk Hound puppy:
8. I remembered why I miss home so much:
