After seeing our Thanksgiving Card picture a lot of people have asked if we moved – either they don’t know us well at all or they’re joking. But boy do I wish we’d have moved into the mansion in that picture!
No such luck. But, we did spend a beautiful Sunday afternoon at the Cranes Estate in Ipswich. We often go to Cranes beach, but I have never taken my kids to the estate and boy we’ve been missing out. It is breath taking. A huge mansion and a long grassy rolling hill stretching out to the ocean. And, the grass is really as green as it looks in the pictures.
The day was perfect for pictures, so we I took a lot of them and since we had other people with us (Eva’s family and Saren) I forced Jeff to take a family picture. I bullied everyone into taking a bunch of them to make sure we had one we liked (grumbling all around) and then we ended up liking the very first picture snapped the best. Kind of ironic.
I’m gonna let the pictures tell the story here:
In my dreams I’ll live in this beautiful place, and in real life I’ll just try to visit it more. And maybe convince someone to hire me to take their family pictures there too. It’s pretty amazing.
