Grandbabies visit Washington!

I really want to tell you about my fabulous trip to Hawaii. But first I must tell you about my grandbabies coming to visit me in Washington. First 'Nessa and William came for a visit. William is a 27 pound ball of energy! It was really fun to have them here. We did some shopping and sightseeing. The Japanese L.O.V. E. little curly, blonde headed babies, and they were fascinated with Will at Pikes Market in Seattle. Grandpa Ron gave Will piggyback rides and read books and played drums with him. I let him have fun with potatoes from the pantry and the dust mops...that kid loves to push a mop around! I wish I had his energy. As soon as they were gone I missed them. The house was too quiet!                                                                 

 A few days later Shannon came up for a visit with Hudson. Hudson isn't as old as William and not nearly as mobile. It was so great to have them both here. Shannon taught me her recipe for cinnamon rolls. (delish!) and it made so many, that I had Ron take some to work. Needless to say, they were a big hit at his office! We also did some touristy things with Shannon & H.  Shannon and I went exploring to some places that I hadn't been to before, including an antique shop where I purchased some old glass fishing floats, used on fisherman's nets long ago. Ron treated us like queens on Mother's Day...complete with crowns and a lovely dinner that he and Hudson prepared for us. It was so nice to have them here, I really wish everyone could live closer.
