Hubby and I had a great weekend! We FINALLY made it to the Big Apple to see our Grandbabies!! We decided to make it an adventure and jumped on the train and got to see a little bit of the big cities along the way!
|The Beginning of our journey, Friday am|
|Washington DC, the Washington and Jefferson Memorials|
|Empire State building, NYC|
|The Freedom Tower!|
|Dylan and Ava|
|Hailey with brother Dylan and her Dad, Jon!|
We spent the weekend doing family time, going to the park and just visiting and it was wonderful!!
|Ava and Gammaw!|
|Chloe and Hailey playing on the laptop!|
|Dylan was fascinated with this jump rope!|
|Dylan, Ava, Chloe and Gampaw!!|
|Ava with her Mommy, April! The hardest working Mommy ever!|
|Ava finally getting comfortable with a very proud Gampaw, he said this made the whole trip worth it, she stayed in his arms for a long time!!|
|Chloe and Hailey|
Being the 'Shelllady' you know I had to tie shells into this in some way or another! I wanted to make something special for them from my shells so I decided to make them each a necklace letting them know that even though we can't be with them all the time, we are thinking of them always!
|Hailey's Horse Conch|
|Chloe's Lightning Whelk|
|Dylan's Fighting Conch!|
Hailey will also be thinking of something she would like me to make with my shells for them, so stay tuned for more shell crafts!!
While we were in the city, waiting for the train to go home, I saw this on the side of a huge building right next to Penn Station!
I looked a little closer, and there were guys up there painting this!! I didn't think anyone did this anymore!! How would you like to have this job??? Not me!!
When we got home, we got to see MORE babies! Two of our local Geese families gave birth to their babies! One has 6, the other 5!
We had a great visit with our family in New York and Hubby (Gampaw) said on the way home that we are going to make sure we get back there much more often, we are going to shoot for at least every 6 months! April works so hard with her family, and they are all so smart as a result! What a pleasure to spend time with them all!! I can't wait to get them down to our place in Florida and get them out there on the beach....can you imagine??
PS...Hailey and Chloe, I am including you in the term Grandbabies, hope you don't mind, I really do know you are not babies anymore!! :)
