In Renton Washington visiting Relatives…
I went to Renton, WA yesterday to surprise and visit my aunt, and my cousin who happens to live next door. As I was walking up the driveway my aunt just happened to step out onto her deck to water a plant when she looked at me just standing there. We had not seen each other in probably five years, so it was a bit of a shock for her and took a moment to process who I was.
After my aunt regained her composure I asked if she’d had a pool party this past weekend since it was so nice out…said no, but they were having one tonight. It was a Tuesday evening, what were the changes. Anyhow, I had a lovely evening catching up with my aunt and cousin as well as seeing some of their old friends. We had a great dinner outside on the deck overlooking Lake Washington as the sun set. My expectation of a couple hour visit turned into an entire day. That’s what I get to do on Mike’s Road Trip…whatever I want. 🙂
