Quick vacation update

I love vacation! I have taken two naps in two days - unheard of! The kids and I had a great time exploring Yale once I had finished what I had to do for work. Here they are on the steps of the Yale Law School, armed with paper airplanes that they charmed out of the security guard.

By the time we were ready to take the train to Massachusetts, they were wiped out.

Staying with my sister and her family is always fun. We took a bike ride (8 of us). How neat to have kids who can begin to do for themselves.

I finished the binding on her quilt on the way here. I am still hand quilting it, though. I also read Shadows in the Night by Janet Babin. I hope she writes more - there wasn't as much quilting as I had hoped, but the story was fun.
Well, gotta run. Literally. My sister is a runner, so I get exercise when I am here. It takes all year to recover from visiting her.

Oh, how fun all that sounds. I'm glad you're enjoying yourselves. Enjoy the run. I'm glad that I can take long walks, much less run with someone that does it all the time. Don't run so fast you run into yourself. Lane

Sounds like you are having a great time. It is nice that you can get away for a while and enjoy the boys and your family.

What great memories your children are going to have. Don't exercise too much, or you will have to come home to rest !! Have fun !

I wish I'd had cousins my kids own age to do things like that with. It sounds like a lot of fun. Yale looks like a gorgeous University.
