Family Time


















We have spent the last four days enjoying our time with our grandson Aleister and his parents. Aleister is in preschool, but we still have been able to spend time with him every day. This has included a visit to a pumpkin farm, trick or treat, and picking him up from school to hear all he has learned that day. The pumpkin farm included some fun activities including a maze, hay ride and games. Trick or treat was at the outlet mall, which provided a good location to see other kids enjoying the holiday, as well.

Aleister’s dad has built him the Taj Mahal of playhouses in the back yard. It will stand up to any weather and provide Aleister a place of his own for many years.

The only disappointment has been with the weather, even as we move south, we have had freezing nights so far this week.

We have two days left here and then we continue south, with our next extended stop planned for Gulf Shores State Park, AL.

What an adorable little boy. Love the "Woody" costume.
That playhouse looks wonderful...the ice on the windshield - not so much!! Hope you find some warmer weather soon.

Aleister is a handsome young man. I love the header picture. Toooo cute! What an awesome pumpkin farm. I can see how Aleister would want to stay there all day...maybe the grandparents too. Enjoy your last few days. Make lots of memories and I know DON'T have to remind you to take pictures. Love the "Taj Mahala."
