The Grandchildren

Saturday, March 24th, 2007

March 3-10 was the 3rd Soft Doll Art Cruise. It was a bit different this year as we didn’t have enough for our own cruise. We joined a quilt cruise. But, 13 of us had a great time. We had two people from England and one from Australia join us this year. And, we even made mermaids.
After the cruise I visited our daughter, JB, and her family in Orlando. Our granddaughters have grown up so much.
Kayleigh is now 7 mos. old. Her sister, Kieran, is 3 and loves having a little sister.

When I was in Jr. High we left the farm in Illinois and moved to the gulf coast of Florida. I took the girls to the beach, and you can see that they had a great time. Even Kayleigh loved playing in the sand.

It was hard leaving, but I had to fly up to Illinois see my dad. We spent one afternoon trudging through the woods looking for an old pioneer cemetery. Dad is now living with one of his brothers, Duane. Hard to believe that these two men are 90 and 88 years old.
