~This photo was taken in February, just as Erin was coming down with the flu.~
This is our darling granddaughter Erin. Isn't she wonderful? She will arrive on Thursday for a three night visit with us! We are so excited to have her all to ourselves.
There will be lots of outdoor activities, walks to the lake, art projects, some baking and special story times.
Erin has a baby brother Jack Alexander- who just turned 7 months. We can't wait until he's a little older and can join us for these special visits with Pop-Pop and Mimi.
Do you have a Grandchild or a special young person that comes to visit? What are the adventures that you share with your young friends?
When I was a young girl, I would ride my bike to my Grandparent's house for a weekend visit.
My Grandmother and I would prepare the evening meal for my Gramp and then often we would pack a basket and go to the back field for a picnic.
During those weekends I would brush Gram's hair, polish her fingernails and we always had a baking project. Those are among some of my favorite memories.
We hope to create special memories for Erin and Jack- although, I'm not sure I'm ready for Erin to do my nails...
~We love this photo of Erin~although she was not feeling quite herself-it shows her depth, soulfulness, her mischievousness and her sweet side.~
