This was one of the first really lovely weekends of the spring - climatologically speaking, at least. Maria's wedding is quickly approaching, and we had made arrangements to go to the Planting Fields Arboretum to get a feel for the place, figure out how we would deal with parking, and staging of the actual ceremony itself. Amrita had a prior commitment, and Lauren claimed illness, so Maria came to pick me up with Alli and India in tow. And I have to say, it's a gorgeous place. I went photo crazy, of course. But it was busy, and I wound up rather exhausted by the time I got home. We ran to Maria's grandparents', to the Arboretum, and back to her grandparents', and all this too five hours. Or rather, it took me five hours; Maria had an extra hour and a half of driving, what with taking India and Alli back to the Stony Brook University area.
