I'll be back in "real time" on Sunday! If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that my daughter and grandchildren have been here from New England (Dad stayed behind to work). This visit was very last minute.
Stephanie had been wanting to fly us out to their house but I wasn't quite up to it this time. I received a message on either Monday or Tuesday, asking me what I thought of her driving out with the kids to arrive on Thursday. Of course, I'd love to see them... once I got over her driving a thousand miles without anyone to help. Although Elisabeth is a great navigator.
We decided to keep their arrival a secret from Christopher's family. I don't think I've written that he took a job in another town so they are a little over an hour away now. Piper's first birthday party was scheduled for Saturday so Stephanie, the kids, and Granddad all traveled to the town where they now live and surprised them at the party. They took a video of when they walked through the front door. It was worth the trip.
Yes, I stayed at home. I knew if I went they would all have to return soon since I get fatigued easily. However, Piper and her mommy were in town on Monday for a well baby checkup and all the girls went out to lunch together. It was a lot of fun and Grammie did get her Piper fix.
We had a wonderful visit. It is always shocking to see how big the grandchildren are getting when we see them once a year. My Hobbit, David, is now TALL! How did that happen? He will always be my Hobbit, though.
I love the photo Stephanie took when we were all at lunch at an Irish restaurant near campus, the day before they left for home. That's me under the Guinness sign, beside Faith. ;)
I'll be back on Sunday!
