We drove from the train station in New Haven to Henniker, NH on Friday night. What's in Henniker you ask? Almost nothing...but, there is a small college, New England College and it really is a beautiful area, the school is integrated into a small New England town full of 19th century white buildings and covered bridges and a town center with one blinking red light to control traffic. Why were we in Henniker? My sister was graduating from grad school on Saturday after just graduating as an undergrad a year ago (I just officially finished my schooling this month and I was 3 years ahead of her in school). It was a nice little ceremony with guest commencement speaker Delfeyo Marsalis, he wasn't bad. It was a beautiful day to and New Hampshire on a nice spring day is almost unbeatable, I'm glad Sam got to come along to see the area before Amanda(my sister) moved away and I had no reason to go back there.
We headed back to CT on Saturday and met up with Sam's parents for a nice evening of hanging out and talking about living at home and saving money and the general benefits of having more money (there's a few). Sunday was a cool gray day, I ended up meeting some friends in Mansfield for some ultimate frisbee and I ran my ass off, as much as it sucks, it feels good to do it. Sam was at work all day, so after frisbee I hung out with my Dad all evening and we watched JCVD (which was awesome) and Role Models. It was a good day, my Dad had been feeling like crap lately so it was nice to just sit on the couch and watch some action and comedy and eat chips and salsa.
All in all a good weekend with the family and Sam. Looking forward to Memorial day next weekend!
