Fast forward seven months and four days, and Luisa is quite the lady. I was excited to meet her extended family on her dad Adam's side. His parents Chris and Trish made the drive from Ohio, enjoying the scenery along the way. His brother Brian, his wife Amy, and daughters Maddie, 11, and Gigi, almost 4, flew up from Nashville for Gigi's first plane ride.
The wind was hauling, so we skipped the beach and hit the local playground, which always brings the kid out in us adults! Both Adam and Brian couldn't resist joining their own kids on what seemed a particularly tricky spinning wheel structure -- a core workout and an injury waiting to happen, as Julie put it after her attempt :) Good news though, no injuries. And I got to document Luisa's first swingset swing!
Ice cream -- pre-dinner! -- might been promised after the photo session, but I said to Maddie and Gigi, it was well-deserved. They were great! So was everyone else. It was such a pleasure to meet you all, and I hope to see you again on your next visit to Maine!
