Today’s itinerary: Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Minnesota

I’m back! We drove home from Colorado today, and now I’m all worn out.

You know, the grandparenting thing is great because you don’t have all the responsibilities of a parent, but the bad part is that it breaks your heart to leave, and Mom & Dad won’t let you smuggle the baby home in your luggage.

    Awww, what a joy to see one of your beautiful grandchildren. I wish I could see some of mine.
    I’m glad that your travels were safe and that you have Mary home with you now.

    Well, good.
    Did you wash the colour off your beard before you arrived there?

  3. says

    Oh that’s just too sweet a picture. I’m glad you’re safe home. There will be times when visiting family is easier and until then you can go back to being a floating head. Also seconding kestrel on the owl.

    Wait, the owl is STUFFED?

    And I presume the book is on the genetics of spiders?

    Iliana has a thing about owls. She has several owl toys and usually walks around carrying one. Or two. Or three.

    The book is about dinosaurs.

  6. flexilis says

    And owls are dinosaurs. Grand kids, stuffed toys and books. It doesn’t get any better.
