It's about a three and a half hour drive to Great Regnier's house. It took us four and a half hours to get there. Talk about ready to get out of the vehicle.
We were also really ready to see Great Regnier. Josie made sure she got plenty of hugs and attention. Great Regnier is probably grateful for the break from her.
Saturday night, we got to visit some of our good friends, the Fish family. We had a great time seeing all of Cathy's animals (goats, horses, puppies, dogs, hedgehogs, geese, ducks, etc.). It took a great deal of self control but Degnan managed to tell all of the humans "Hi" before running to the barn to see everything. The kid loves his animals. Yesterday, he and I went for a walk to see if there were any horses near Great Regnier's house. No luck. Last night at bed time, he told me that he was ready to go home. He missed his bed and his animals. He can't go too long without animals.
We cleaned ourselves up early this morning and made it to church. The kids didn't even get to hunt eggs beforehand.
The trip home only took the three and half hours it was supposed to but it sure seemed longer. In spite of naps and a few rounds of The Animal Game, boredom set in. The kids made up a "neat" game called "Whose Feet Smell the Worst?" They all smelled awful. We couldn't get out of the truck fast enough.
It was a great weekend celebrating with family and friends.
