Gotta Love Those Long Weekends!

We had a lovely long weekend. Our youngest granddaughter spent Saturday night with us. She and I went shopping on Saturday for all the things we’d need on Sunday for the family gathering of her baby cousin being baptized. Papa gave her a list of things he needed and she had a one-tracked mind to get everything on it, until we came across a Doc McStuffin Doctor’s Kit. She does make a wonderful doctor. Granddog Bear will agree. Really. Just ask him. 

Sunday arrived and although Grandma got up extra early so there would be plenty of time for us to be at the church by 8:30, we were still strapped for time. One forgets how long it takes to get extra little people ready. We made it in plenty of time for the service, which was beautiful, we just needed to stop back home to pick up all our foodstuff before going to the celebration. 

Little Connor was a real gem through all of it. Not a fuss or peep during the service, and he didn’t mind being passed from arm to arm as all the family members needed a turn to hold him. His new God parents were so proud, as we are of them. His Godfather flew in from Oklahoma for the wondrous event and his Godmother worked until 5:30 am, showered, and drove an hour to be at the service in plenty of time. Yes, we are truly blessed with our wonderful family, and I do thank the Good Lord daily for each and every one of them. Here’s three generations of Robinson boys. 

Monday was calmer. We had a nice visit with old friends while our house was being bug zapped to get rid of the bees we stirred up while removing the retaining wall in front of the garage a couple of weekends ago.

Last Friday Papa and I took a jaunt to a car museum, where the museum owner allowed me to ‘cross the chain’ and get up close views of cars from the 1920’s for my latest WIP. It was fabulous, and this coming Friday a friend and I are going to take a cruise to where Al Capone was known to hideout in Minnesota. I am really enjoying researching the twenties! What an amazing era! 

Give your loved ones an extra hug today. They deserve it. And so do you!
