my parents both work at a school that has spring break
so yesterday they headed down
(with my aunt rosemary)
--you know, the place where the ponies roam =)
i think it's their new favorite vacation spot (lots of wildlife/beaches/ocean etc)
anyways, they were passing perilously close to south jersey and decided to brave the philly traffic and stop by for an hour!
i'm so glad they did--it was wonderful to see them and my aunt but soooo sad too!
i miss having them close by and each time i see them i think about how we're all getting older
how nothing stays the same for long
how i miss the days when we were in the same state
it's been 14 years since i've lived at home
it's amazing to me to think that i've been gone nearly as long as i lived there!
so many memories are tied up for me there
i'm thankful for today, of course, but every once in a while i can't help but
field of grass napping
horse, cow, chicken, sheep, pig, goat, geese, duck tending
hay baling/wood stacking
bike/4 wheeler/snowmobile riding
