Hi Grandpa !!

Moving in

It's brrrrrr!! cold

no chlorine to sting the eyes

all at once is the way to go

stay in to stay warm?
right, grandpa!

feeding the baby ducks

just a few days old

nice and warm now

"Hailey, how do you spell b-r-e-a-k-fast?"

Well, after a weeks wait, Grandma D. brought her grand babies home from Texas to NY for a three week visit. They left Corpus at 0630 their time and arrived here at the cabin at 1930 our time; a twelve hour journey. A journey with the typical for today airline faux pas but nothing major. Three tired and hungry travelers arrived just as grandpa was taking the chicken, burgers (Boca), and the famous Glaziers off the grill. :-)))
Do you remember when you were a kid and went away to camp or vacation at a friends and , golly, you just wanted to do everything all at once? We didn't do it all but we did a lot in a couple of hours: scoped out the surrounds, ie the cabin "small but nice and cozy says Crystal", "I like it ", says Hailey, the rivera nd the Canada shore. A new room waaiting to be settled into, dinner to eat, a first dip in the frigid St. Lawrence, a camp-fire to warm chilled bodies by, (grandpa forgot the marshmallws :-(, and new journals to make first entries in. Things that we put off for another day: a 1 mile, 1 way swim to canada, and a kayak lesson, but other than that we did alot in 2 1/2 hours before flopping exhausted into our cozy little beds. Oh, how could I forget: making friends with the resident kitties, and feeding the ducks!

I can almost see it, hear it, feel how wonderful it is to be there together.

So very glad that you have that! It is priceless, and you are greatly blessed.

Yay! D. and the granddaughters are finally home. Chilly St Lawrence river...brrrr. Only a kid could do that and shame on you, Grandpa, for forgetting the marshmallows!

Have a lovely time with your granddaughters, Rel. Look forward to hearing of your adventures.

I'm rather close to Corpus, actually, and spent all my summers there as a kid. The thought never would have occurred to me to LEAVE there for summer vacation!!

Oh my gosh!! Can I sign up for your family?! It is THE single coziest thing, the memory of safety and play and aromas and sunsets, all mixed up and packed into Grandmas and Grandpas.

The pictures are perfection! Thanks. I'm very happy now and can go back to work.
