Violette went on her first airplane ride to visit her Greatgrandparents, Grandparents, Aunt and friends in Seattle and Portland. She was a great traveler!
It took us 2 days, 5 airports, a rental car, and 3 bus systems to get home after Christmas.
One surprise was a lovely hotel connected to the Hartford airport, that let us use their business center and print for free without being guests. Without them, we wouldn’t have been able to use the bus tickets we had bought and would have had to buy new ones at the station, for a much later bus! Thank you Sheraton, you rock our world!
We missed photographing some of the fun memories of making cookies and putting together puzzles with Grandpa (we were too busy making cookies and putting together puzzles) but here are some of our pictures. You can check out more photos of the fun on Thadd’s blog, or on Shannon and John’s, or on Mr. Allen’s.
A family (and friends) reunion to celebrate the life of our amazing Doris Brown, my grandmother-extraordinaire.
This is my grandparent’s beautiful yard and the site of the celebration. The flower gardens are “Doris’ Memory Garden”.
