Back in April on our transatlantic cruise, Maisie met a boy named Elam and the two of them spent hours each day playing and laughing together. They had so much fun together and were basically inseparable, sad each time they had to part and very sad on the final day of the cruise when they had to go their separate ways. Maisie would love seeing Elam everyday but as he lives halfway across the country it’s just not possible but yesterday he and his Mom were in Atlanta so they came to visit and they spent the night at our home.
(photo by Julie) They made Sharpie tie-dye t-shirts, swam in the pool, played games and the Wii, ran around and were silly up until well after midnight.
This morning Maisie got up very early to bid farewell to her friend as he had an early morning flight home. As Elam & Julie drove off Maisie said that she couldn’t wait until the next time they’re together. After her busy day yesterday, super late night night and waking up for a crack of dawn farewell breakfast Maisie crashed out this afternoon and as I’m typing this post she’s catching up on some much needed sleep. Thanks Elam & Julie for a fun and giggly visit, we can’t wait for the next one.
