over all, we had a really great 4th of july weekend, getting to see both families! it will probably be a while before we get that chance again, so we really appreciated our time together!
monday afternoon diana came home from her mom and step-dad's place. i came home the night before so i could bring the car in to get its brakes fixed (it was the only day that diana wouldn't need the car for school, so we wanted to take it in then). her mom, david, and alanna all came to drop off diana. well, they didn't come just to drop her off, they were bringing alanna to the airport in chicago so she could fly back to boston. they stayed and chatted for a little bit, then were off! diana said that it was really cool to be able to spend some extra time with alanna- the last time she visited was the end of last summer!
