As the Peony bushes are pushing their way through the ground, here at our
...our Midwest family spent the week visiting us. They arrived on Saturday, and left
early this morning. It has been years since our niece and nephew spent time with
their grandmother, and she loved every moment of that time together.
Time to read and to relax, were so needed for this family. They live busy lives, and face
many demands, when they return from their spring break.
There was treasured time for lots of conversation, snacking on fresh, sweet,
delicious oranges from Costco, and potato chips. Sounds like a great combination
doesn't it? If what my brother claims is true, that potato chips really are vegetables,
then we snacked on fruit and vegetables:)
We had an extended family dinner with cousins who rarely spend time together.
Platters of hot, broasted chicken, makes every family event better.
The young ones were introduced for the first time, to the newest members of the family.
It was a tender moment for us, when we saw one of our nephews, taking a picture of
his precious, tiny second cousin.
"The richest gifts we can bestow are the least marketable."
~Henry David Thoreau
The family left early this morning, to drive the long distance home, and we
are left with lots of special memories.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
