One of the most important things that we had on our list to do before we left for Korea was to visit our friends and family in New England one more time. We flew out there for Easter Weekend and had such a wonderful visit – it was so nice to see everyone! We will miss everyone so much, but can’t wait to swap stories on what’s been happening when we come back to visit!On Friday, the Prokops (well, soon to be Prokops…) graciously picked us up from the airport and let us stay with them! We headed out to dinner with some of our dearest friends in Boston. I can’t even explain to you how great it was see all of them! We are lucky to have such wonderful people in our life! I wish I had taken more pictures but here are a couple from the dinner – thanks for meeting up with us!
On Saturday, we headed from Boston down to Ryan’s family’s house in Connecticut. Mama Kendrick had planned a big get together for us to see everyone before we leave. It was tons of fun – lots of food, hugs, margaritas, and plenty of laughs! Thank you to everyone for coming out to see us – we will miss you lots!
We also spent a day with the Kendricks and took a hike up by their house…it was a beautiful day and we really enjoyed spending time with them! It was also complete with Ryan and Ben racing (Casey joined in, too) – I’m pretty sure Casey won!
Last but certainly not least for our New England weekend, we headed to Nonni’s house to spend some time with the Vozzolas! We had the famous Ad’s pizza (Nonni’s speciality) with a lovely salad made by Aunt Elly and some delicious cupcakes from Aunt Cilest! We were also pleasantly surprised to be joined by my cousin, Crystal, and her two super cute kiddos! You can see us all in the picture below
(Aunt Cathy and my cousin Peter joined us as well, but they sneakily left before the picture – we’ll make sure to take another one with them in it next time!)
My friend Vicki came to visit, too and it was great to see her! She’s such a world traveler, I’m sure we’ll see her in Asia some time!
All in all, we had a fantastic weekend getting to see some of our favorite people! We caught the 6:15 AM flight out of Hartford back to Houston the next day – talk about an early morning and a long day, but it was well worth it to spend the spring weekend out in beautiful New England! Now to continue packing and getting ready…only a little more than week left!
