We have been so excited for this weekend ever since our friends offered to open their home up to us. We were so excited to first meet the Endres crew for lunch. We have met so many incredible Rett families in our Rett journey. We are so lucky to have a few in our lives that we know we would have been friends with regardless of Rett. Back home, we have our little crew of Illinois-Wisconsin families that we make sure we see regularly. We wish the Endres family lived closer because we know they'd fit right in.
Jilly and Cammy both slept through lunch, but I'm pretty sure they were just letting their parents catch up without being rudely interrupted in their own conversation. Even though Jennifer and I (or any Rett mom) usually talk about Rett, our families, our girls, it's so nice to see and hear Billy and Justin (or any Rett dad like Billy) talk about everyday things and not Rett. I love and appreciate that Rett is not always on their minds and they can separate it. They talk like any friends do.
Both girls perked right up at Sundae School for ice cream. Ryan wanted to know if Colin could have ice cream any time he wanted to. Cammy tried a new ice cream, Oreo. She loved the whipped cream and REAL ice cream. Jilly and Cammy were having their own conversation while Jennifer and I were being silly behind the cameras to make them smile for us. They were giving each other eyes like they were so embarrassed of us. I know Cammy was saying "See what I have to deal with?" Cammy was all smiles for Justin. I had to have a talk with her again (as Cammy prefers many husbands to the wives) that Justin belonged to Jennifer and not her We had so much fun and were so grateful that they could take time out of their day to hang out with us.
Billy and I had been waiting for lobster rolls all trip and we were not disappointed. Thank you for a lovely evening Mrs. D'Amour. Dinner and your company has hit the spot.
We are looking forward to a good night's sleep and play on the Cape tomorrow.
