Here are some highlights...
Tim preparing for his role as sommelier during dinner with the whole fam, minus Jane and James
Grandpa Bill and Grandma Enid's (Mary's parents) new rental house in Brooktondale! Word has it their flat screen TV is a favorite with little girls...
Anna and me at the game; she's a Cornell freshman now, continuing the Psiaki legacy on crew
Mandy, Dave, Tim and me at Purity Ice Cream, one of our favorite places! It was so great to spend time with them for a couple of days!
Karen and Mike, Dave and Mandy, me and Tim (bad grammar, I know, but that's the order!)
Time to unwind
Tim helps Lydia reach the best apples
Lydia in the apple barn; I still have a bunch of dried statice from this place!
The apple cider doughnuts are half the fun!
Shelby the new dog does his version of Superman
Tim, aka Mr. Fix-It, works on his parents' "new" 1840s table. The thing has something like 6 leaves and expands to the length of the entire room!
This is as close as Jenny's belly will let me come!
The happy parents-t0-be! If the baby comes on time, which will be Thursday, she and Matt will have the same birthday. I'm leaving Ithaca on Saturday, so I told Jenny I was giving her two extra days. Meanwhile, we're rounding up all the labor-inducing old wives' tales we can find...
View of the Washington Monument from the Smithsonian Freer Gallery, where I spent part of Monday afternoon. After dropping Tim off at the Binghamton airport on Sunday (people with real jobs don't get to take such long vacations!) I continued down to DC to visit Krista, Dorsy and Haven. It was beautiful weather and a fun, quick trip!
More to come!
