Absence makes the heart grow fonder...right?

If that statement is true then ya'll must ADORE me! :D

I won't bore you with all the details (at least not til I've uploaded all my pics!) but we have been highway bound for the last week.

First a trip to Albany NY to visit friends and see some of the great places that upstate New York has to offer. Or should I say what great EATS they have to offer since I sampled my way through the city. From Pasta Fagioli to chocolate cream puffs, to Polish coffee cake (Placek) and the perfect soft serve I had it all.

Let's just say I imagine heaven to be like Bella Napoli's - the Italian bakery we went to. Breads & desserts oh my!

Thursday we had to return home so that we could go to the teen's college on Friday in order to register him for classes. "On the road again..."

Then we returned to his future college on Saturday for a special invite only scholarship reception.

When we got home that night I was b-e-a-t. I mean totally exhausted.

But you know what they rest for the weary...

Guess that's why we had a belated Easter picnic/egg hunt yesterday. Three hours in the park with the little ones would wear anyone out but then like complete fools we worked in the yard after that.


Needless to say I've got a lot of catching up to do - with blogs, with work, at home, etc, etc, etc. and no energy at all to do any of it.
