Take the long way home ....!

What a busy weekend it was! We headed out on Saturday morning to Massachusetts via Albany to attend my mother in law's 80th birthday dinner!

My little Pumpkin works at a boy scout camp for the summer and we headed that way to pick her up. Although it is always fun to take a different route, it did extend our driving time by 2.5 hours. We left at 8:15 a.m. and arrived in MA at 4:15 p.m.

We went to a wonderful Asian restaurant for dinner. And yes, my MIL was totally surprised to see us. We are the only ones that live "far" away, she didn't expect us to make it.  Here we are gathered at the restaurant table:

Now, I'm a big fan of sushi and apparently so is the rest of my family! So my niece, Michelle, ordered the Love Boat! Now that's heaven on a boat!

Presentation is everything ..... this is the best I've seen so far! It was all so yummy!

A great time was had by all of us. We returned home, via the long way again, Sunday morning as Pumpkin needed to be at work by noon. Although I enjoyed seeing everyone, by the time I arrived home I was beat!

Would you believe that last week I logged 1,300 miles (2,092 km) on my car?  Of which 900 was done between Saturday and Sunday! I think I'll stay put for a while! lol

Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!

That is quite a drive, too bad you couldn't stay longer.
What part of Mass are they in?
