Surprise! 7/24/14 – 7/28/14

Miller beating the Yakima heat!

Oh, yes we did! We flew back home for the annual Camp Cameron pool party! We could not risk our perfect attendance for this event and what a great opportunity for us to see our friends and family all in one weekend. We hadn’t been home in 10 mo’s! Left the MoHo in Syracuse, NY on Thursday morning and drove 5 hours down to Philly for our flight. This worked out well with our Alaska Airlines companion fare and we were able to drop the Acura at a dealership near the airport for some maintenance work. Got into Seattle at 9pm, my mom picked us up (she knew we were coming) and we stayed with her that night.

Friday morning, we picked up our rental car, a sweet Dodge Challenger, then took care of some appointments. Drove over to Yak and arrived around 2:30pm to an empty Camp Cameron (except for their new puppy, Penny) as they were out golfing. Mitch was the first one home and I wished we had a camera nearby to capture the look on his face. Classic. Sunny’s reaction a bit later was equally good. Actually, we had a similar reaction time after time as everyone arrived, we kind of felt like celebrities!   I think deep down many thought there was a chance we would come, but hopefully we did a pretty good job of hiding the secret.

Poolside!

It was a great weekend of catching up and spending time with great friends. And as usual, Mitch and Sunny were the perfect hosts! So happy we were able to make the trip. We left on Monday, sad to say goodbye, and headed back over to Seattle. Spent the afternoon and evening with my mom & brother, complete with dinner at our favorite little Mexican restaurant, Tapatio, in Newcastle. We were up and off to the airport at 6:30am on Tuesday morning back to Philly, then the drive up to Syracuse. Our heads hit the pillow about 11pm that night. A whirlwind trip, but so worth it!

    We couldn’t have been happier (and surprised) that you two made the huge effort to be here! What a great weekend with friends and many memories and stories to tell (Mitch is now known as “Slice”)…We miss you so and were so ready and in need of our Miller-Time Fix!
