Family Visit

Our two granddaughters came for a visit from NY Saturday. What a thrill it was to see them in person!  Their mother lived with us in 1976-77 and our first granddaughter was born at our local hospital. I was the birthing coach when our son was in the Navy at the time and his pregnant wife came to live with us for a while. The mother and child stayed for a few months and then our son moved his family South. They returned a year later for a short visit along with with a second baby daughter.

After 40 years we were pleased to share stories and photos and just enjoyed being together. Our daughter, their Aunt who lives nearby came and visited when they were here, and took them to see their Great Uncle who lives close. He remembers their father, who died after a car accident in 1994 at the age of 37. Our firstborn granddaughter has 4 children, ages 23, 22, 19, and 14. She is already a grandmother. The other has two daughters, ages 23 and 19.

They love it here at the lake and one of them is even considering the purchase of a home in the area.

Of course photos were taken. The first two are mine.
These are their cell phone images.

I didn't remember that the sun shining in the windows would not be a good thing for automatic eye on the phones.
We hope to have another visit soon!
