About six weeks ago my niece Toots gave birth to a much awaited baby boy named Ray. She and her husband live a little more than an hour away. I had a gift for the baby and wanted to deliver it before he out grew it and before the weather and the roads got bad. They also live about ten miles from a second hand shop that usually has old photos.
Some of the roads near one of the lakes had icy curves but other than that it was a nice drive.
I enjoyed seeing their new home, meeting the dogs, having a good visit with Toots and of course meeting baby Ray. I got to hold him for a good long time. Ray is my sister Julie’s grandson.
His little outfit says Hero and he had a golden cape attached to the back.
I finally irritated him enough taking his photo that he woke up! He is a much loved little boy.
It seems I picked a really good day to be gone. The next day we had our third snow.
We have 2+ inches of snow on the ground. I guess we are beginning our six months of winter.
So I had a good adventure… stopping to take photos whenever I wanted, visiting at a second hand shop where I am known as “the old picture lady,” meeting baby Ray and I topped off the day by getting back to town just in time for my oil change appointment. Far Guy and Chance did just fine by themselves for the day.
