Ye Olde Mystic.

After living the island life in the Far East, we moved a little less east and stayed with Grammie and Grandpa in a town called Mystic.

There was a pool.

Mom made me wear these things called floaties. I pretended to hate them.

But those things called floaties let me swim by myself. Don’t tell mom I kind of love my floaties.

There was a beach.

Grammie gave me this red shovel and bucket.

And there was a fantastic sunset.

I loved spending time with Grammie and Grandpa in the lovely town of Mystic.

 

 

A little (more) island adventure.

I visited the little island of Nantucket when I was just a baby, and I promised Aunt and Uncle KandK that I would be back, whether they liked it or not! So, during our travels in the Far East, we hopped on a ferry and zipped over the ocean and joined all of dad’s family at KandK’s little island home. It was a wonderful four days of little island life.

KandK have a beautiful home with a big yard and big flowers.

Their yard is so big and perfect for shenanigans.

The whole family gathered together, and ate clams cooked many different ways.

We visited multiple beaches, saw lots of boats, shells, seaweed, and even a lighthouse.

The water was very cold at some of the beaches.

There were boats of all sizes, including large yachts.

There was even a light house, which was rather small for my taste.

The sunset on the beach the last night was certainly the most special part of the trip.

Then it was time to hop back on the high speed ferry, feel the wind in our hair, and head back to America.

Thanks for a wonderful visit to your little island, KandK! Don’t worry, I will invite myself back again sooner rather than later!!!

Holiday shopping.

Apparently people do a lot of shopping to celebrate Jesus’¬† birthday. Allow me to give you some shopping pointers for this holiday season.

First you have to be willing to scour the clearance racks.

Then you have to figure out if the price is a good deal.

image

And then you have to be willing to come back another day, one where you might actually walk out the door with an unbeatable bargain in hand.

image

Dad and Grammie you have taught me well.

Grammie.

Grammie came to visit for my birthday. She helped with my party and played with me….. and took me shopping for clothes. Just like dad does. I can tell she is related to him.

Me and Grammie shopping. We were rather sucessful, weren't we Grammie?

Grammie and my Great Aunt Sis were such a wonderful part of my birthday weekend.

Grammie and GP

This past week I met dad’s mom and dad.

Seeing each other in person for the first time.

They pretty much adore me.

I shall call him GP. And he shall be mine.

We spent some of Easter in a place called the Boston Commons. It didn’t seem so common to me.

Uncommon Easter.

It was wonderful to see them this week. I got to be spoiled in person rather than from afar. Getting spoiled is always fine with me, but in person is just so much better. Love you guys!
