Pat had lemonade and, of course, a steaming salty bowl of edamame ready when we got home, and then we went for a walk down our beloved neighborhood paths.
It was just so good to be with these happy people. I never wanted to stop talking!
|mm, so many delicious foods have been made and devoured here!|
We stopped by my old house (which used to be blue!)...
|this might be my favorite picture haha|
I hope our children also have epic middle school experiences! Although I don't think anyone can top the adventures of Padfoot and Prongs : )
Pat had an Indian FEAST prepared for us and it was every bit as incredible as I remember from all those dinners I had in the olden days! YUM.
my mouth is watering...I NEED THIS FOOD AGAIN
We took some last pictures and said our goodbyes after too short of a trip. How thankful I am that this all worked out! I could say so much more, but Ananda I love you and miss you always and can't wait til next time!
