As for the rest of our family visit, Ruth came down from New York. We hadn't seen her in what seems like forever! Before she reached us, she was greeted by one of the Township's finest because she didn't come to a full stop at the corner.

We all went over to Joe and Jan's for dinner. Joe is a great cook, and he outdid himself this time. Jan made a yummy dessert.

Isaac loved the BIG back yard at Joe's house. This little three year old managed to connect with a wiffle bat and a rubber ball for four long hits! He throws right handed and bats left. (Or is it the other way round?) But I think the consensus is that we will wait until he's at least five before we declare him a future All Star.

Aunt Ruth is such a bundle of energy at times, and so much fun! She and Isaac had a great time together

Back at my house the next day, Michael went to work on my computer. Yes, he made the switch from Linux to Micro Soft. He spent hours on the job, dealing with the dozens of Bookmarks, hundreds of pictures, and all of the other nonsense I've accumulated and probably should have got rid of long ago.

I had no concept of how much time and work this would involve, mostly created by me and my lack of computer knowledge. I am so grateful for his skill and his patience with me.

Isaac and Aunt Rita enjoyed playing with the castle. He loves that castle. It was his mothers when she was his age.
It always amuses me to see him playing with the medieval castle, complete with accessories such as Match Box cars, a dinosaur, various sea creatures, and a washer and dryer from his mom's doll house.

On Su
nday morning, most of them went to the beach for a while. Too cold and windy for me! I chickened out. But I went along the next day to the Point, where there was, of course, the obligatory picture-in-front-of-the-lighthouse. And we went over to the lake, where Isaac "went fishing" with a stick that he found.

It was hard to say good-by, as it always is, but our little boy was more than ready to go home. He throws himself into the enjoyment of the moment, wherever he is and whatever he is doing. But he is always happy to get back to home and pre-school and his routine.

Me too.

You and I both know that one of the best things about a grandchild's visit is that they eventually go home.....LOL
