A Vacation With Company

My niece, Donna, and her son, Connor, came to visit last week.  While they were here, it was like a mini-vacation for Motor Man and me.  I’ve been trying to decide how to share with you the many adventures we had and have determined that it will take more than one post, regardless of how brief I am. So, here’s the first installment.

One of our outings was a trip to Williamsburg, which involved a ferry ride. I happened to remember a photo, taken in  2009, of Connor and me on the same ferry.  So we had fun with a little re-enactment.

When Marshall came to visit with us later in the week, he and Connor indulged me with yet another re-enactment. This before photo was also from 2009.

All this growing on Connor’s part jogged something in Motor Man’s mind, resulting in this:

As you can see, Donna was looking on, while Gypsy couldn’t understand why no one was paying attention to her. But, with Motor Man’s precise measurements, we learned that, since the last time we checked during their visit two years ago, Connor has grown nearly seven (7) inches.

Although we had some true adventures, which I’ll share with you on Friday, we also spent quite a bit of time “just” visiting.   Which meant more pictures….

And hugs.

 Friday will be the action part of the vacation. Get ready: it’s pretty fast-paced.

  1. Don’t you just love time with family? It looks like you guys had a wonderful time and it is evident in the pictures how much y’all love each other. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Great pics! Connor has grown, but you haven’t aged a day!!! What fun – looking forward to the ‘rest of the story’.

  3. Great pictures! Thanks for sharing them with us.

  4. What a handsome young man Conner is. I’ll bet you all had a wonderful time visiting. I look forward to your post. Kids grow up so quickly. I think 7 inches is a big growth spurt. Wow.

  5. Wow, Connor really grew up and you didn’t change one bit! Family time is the best and I can tell your niece and her good-looking son got their tanks filled up with lots of love. ❤

    Connor was so cute when he was small, but now he is a very handsome young man. I know you all are very proud of him. Can not wait till Friday’s blog!!

  7. Great times! …
    I love Gypsy’s expression… “Well, I spose I’ll just wait until they remember I’m here..”

  8. Seven inches seems like a lot in two years. Connor is growing into a fine young man. Fun to see the reenactments.

  9. Sure looks like you had a wonderful visit – it’s fun to look at older photos and bring things “up to date” with new ones….!


  10. Some very sweet pictures!
