Vacations can’t last forever. After a blissful week touring Oklahoma/Arkansas, we’re back at home. But, since yesterday was Memorial Day, we had a bonus day off. Wanna know how we celebrated?
We got to spend the day with grandson, Joey, who will be two in July. His big sister, Brianna (age 8), won an essay contest. She was asked to write about what it means to be part of a military family. One of her prizes was tickets to the Orioles’ baseball game for the family. She was interviewed for the local news and everything!
Joey is a bit young to sit through a ball game, so he spent the afternoon with us.
Boy, does that train bring back memories. It is actually Eric’s train. Though he hasn’t used it for a while (he’ll be 20 this year), he sure did love riding that thing. It’s quite a hit with Joey, too.
When Pop had to make a potty run, I got to hold Joey.
All in all, it was a pleasant day. It almost makes having to ease back into the reality of everyday life and work worthwhile.
