Weekend in Connecticut.

This past weekend we took the train back to Connecticut for my birthday and Father's Day. 
It was pretty much perfection. 
That is, if you count perfection in moments when Love picks you up, spins you around and reminds you of how blessed you truly are.
on Saturday, we had my birthday brunch.
with my family.
I went to a bridal shower for my gorgeous friend, Rachel. 
and went out to dinner at Mohegan Sun with husband's parents.
on Sunday, we had a Father's Day brunch for Pops. 
and said goodbye to Baby Sis, who's spending her summer as a camp counselor. 
(she wasn't as sad as we were. the little goob.)
we went on a long ride in Pops' 1916 Model T. 
note: brother recently had his wisdom teeth out. and this picture just kills me. 
 we took the ferry across the Connecticut River to Hadlyme.
 and stood in awe of this beauty.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
