My mother-in-law flew out to see her latest great-grandchild, Adeline, daughter of Jonathan and Naomi -- arriving late Friday night and we thought we'd scoot northwards and say hi. So we did.
Traffic was light and we made it in just about 4.5 hours. Not bad considering the several stops along the way.
Anyway, once we arrived in Hampden, just short of Bangor, we stopped first at Jonathan and Naomi's house catching our first glimpse of Miss Addie and her great-grandmother, too, of course. After a brief chat and tour we all went across the street to Joyce's apartment where we had lunch.
From Joyce's apartment we head to Oron and 9 Cromwell where we would all reunite for dinner and where Susie and I were spending the night.
After the group arrived Joyce set up her computer so gram and great-gram could Skype with Melissa and the Parker clan deep in the heart of Texas. (Melissa is Joyce's daughter, and the kids online were Levi, Lucas and Caroline.) The Parker kids and their antics produced lots of smiles and laughs all the way up in Maine, and I've got the photos to prove it:
|Mother and daughter talking to mother and daughter. . . or rather granddaughter and great-granddaughter|

Not a bad way to spend an evening -- now if the gods would just stop toying with us. . . .
