After the 5 1/2 hour flight from Phoenix, we land in Laguardia Airport in NYC. Mr. Beachball needed to wake up and start adjusting to the new time zone. No better place than Starbucks for that. Mr. Beachball is not looking his vibrant self at all.

I’m sure Mr. Beachball is wondering if this whole trip is worth it by now.  After our flight from NYC to Boston, we had to wait for the bus to take us up to Nashua, NH.  Mr. Beachball is just so anxious, he had to sit up where he could look out the window.

“There she is!”  Mr. Beachball sees my mother, even before I do!  Awww… doesn’t she look great?

Before we could go to the lake or to the beach, I explained to Mr. Beachball that we had to go visit my youngest sister.  She had a very bad car accident 3 years ago which left her a quadriplegic.  Mr. Beachball really wanted his picture taken with her, but she’s not fond of a camera anymore.  So, Mr. Beachball settled for an approximation photo.

Mr. Beachball patiently waits for our day at the lake.  I’ve promised him that it will be tomorrow.
