What We've Been Up To

A trip to Ohio to visit our Grandkids that we are missing so much, now that we're back home. 

Here's the youngest (now walking), with the oldest, who just recently got her driver's license. 

I had to capture my first ride with her.  She looks so much like her Mama at that age that it instantly took me back. 

We even had a birthday celebration while we were there. 

Grandpa likes to assist with anything involving cake.

And before we left, a picture of the whole crew together.  

Then on to Charlotte, NC where we visited Henri's Mom and Sister and dined outside in the glorious weather!

And for all my bloggy friends that live in between the route we traveled, I thought of each and every one of you as we passed through your State on our 2 week trip.   Now I'm off to get caught up with all the posts I've missed from you while we were gone!

Oh Lili- you have a beautiful family! The photos are priceless- love them all- especially the one with Henri and the children and that fabulous group picture.

That was a lot of traveling- no wonder you had time to make that amazing coverlet!

Where in Ohio did you go? ( if you were right next to me I'm gonna die that we didn't meet!!)
