Leaving On a Jet Plane

108_2769Sadly, her and her mama left today to go back to Portland.  Don’t get me wrong, we want them to be back with Seth.  But after having them camping with us for near 6 weeks, we are sad that they won’t be there to greet us in the morning with their lively eyes and big smiles.  Or to hug Good Night, and say ‘I love you!’

We’ll miss Marin toddling around, wearing her camo-diaper.  We’ll miss her giggles, her winning smile.

This is devoted to our first (and presently, only-) granddaughter.  And her fantastic Mom and Dad.  We love you guys!!  And miss you all, already!

She won't eat the pink/red of the watermelon but just the rind.  The grass must have been bugging Marin as she kept her left leg raised for a few minutes.

  1. Marin is a MOST lovable child, and I feel as if I have met her. Hope I get to someday. What a wonderful tribute to your child and grandchild! Makes me smile and tear up for you all at the same time.

    • I thought I’d be strong and …whatever, when they left, but kissing the sleeping head of our grand baby made me choke up with tears saying Goodbye.

      Was such a wonderful time with them. Want to think of the good time together, not the time apart.

      Maybe you will be able to meet her/them one day, Leslie. We really should meet-up again!!
