We recently went to visit our granddaughter in California.  We visited our son and daughter-in-law, too.  But Rachel was the focus of this particular visit.  Lee hadn't been to see her and was anxious to do so.


The cat was not anxious for us to leave.  If I ever visit you and all my clothes have cat hair on them, just know that I really did wash them before I left.

Naturally Rachel is the smartest, most beautiful baby.  You may think your granddaughter is, and we will allow you your small delusion. 


We had a great time and enjoyed every minute with them.  I wish they lived closer to us.  But I doubt we will move back to California, dry and crowded.  Virginia isn't dry and Botetourt County isn't crowded. 

We hope they will move closer to us, but that doesn't seem likely.

So we will visit often and hope they will visit here often.


But we will miss Rachel.


  1. Oh, what a sweet baby. I know it was hard to leave her. Wouldn't she fit in your suitcase?

  2. She looks like a little doll! So sweet! How cute the cat is in your suitcase!

  3. Oh, she's so adorable. Our grandkids are scattered about, too. Just have to keep traveling to see them. Love your kitty picture, too. So pretty.

  4. She is super cute and of course there is no doubt that she is the smartest baby in the land. xo Thanks for sharing the photos with us! xo

  5. You are right, Rachel is beautiful!
