Ahhh...it was sooo good to see this family this past week! They were our neighbors for the past three years, and what amazing neighbors they were! We moved into our home when Brett was just a few weeks old so I can literally say I've seen him grow up! Just this past May, they moved out to PA and I was sooo bummed to see them leave. We had a great relationship...Brett and Barry would sometimes find themselves wondering in our front door, whenever either of us needed some sugar or an onion, we knew we could just ring the bell, and it was just known that anytime they needed something out of the garden, they were more than welcome to help themselves. They were perfect neighbors.
Luckily, they will be visiting NJ often as their families still live here so I know we'll see each other throughout the year! And I can't wait to take a trip out to PA and experience all the wonderful things that Amish Country has to offer!
We took Brett and Barry down to the lake and just let Brett run the show! He threw rocks in the water, walked through the woods and snuggled Barry on a tree log! It was exactly what every little 3 year old boy would enjoy doing on a hot summer day! I hope you enjoy these photos and it reminds you to go out and explore your neighbor and maybe even dip your toes in the lake! I guarantee you won't be disappointed!
