Celebrating Family!

 So excited to join Saturday Celebrations with Ruth Ayres! 
  It is fun to live my week thinking about what I will celebrate on Saturday.
Discover. Play. Build.
A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember!
1.  I told my daughter goodbye on Sunday.  I loved spending 10 days with her in New York.  We had much to celebrate - fabulous weather during my visit, delightful walks, ice cream on three different occasions, the arrival of baby Ruby, two concerts on the quad at Cornell, and plenty of time to talk.

2.  My son-in-law arrived Tuesday evening from UT where he is interning for the summer.  He was here for just one day to do a presentation for work, but we enjoyed having him here for a quick visit and a dinner out together.

3.  My son and daughter-in- law arrived Thursday evening for a quick two day visit.  Her good friend is getting married here.  Lucky us!  We're headed out for a hike this morning before the afternoon wedding.

4.  Everyone leaves tomorrow - hubby on a business trip and the kids return to DC.  It will be quiet for a few days, but I have great memories of quick visits and loving embraces! 


  1. I always enjoy a quiet few days, though it might be an adjustment after so much wonderful family time. Glad you've been able to spend so much time with your family this summer. And you definitely had me at "ice cream on three different occasions"!

  2. A week full of family! How wonderful!

  3. So nice to hear about all your visitors, Ramona, & then a few quiet days to catch up, too. When I have my grandson, we are always on the look out for good ice cream places too. Great that you did that in NYC!

  4. Wonderful family celebrations! Enjoy your quietude.

  5. Lucky you to have so many opportunities to be with your kids! Sounds wonderful!

  6. There's nothing better than having time with family. Your week sounds pretty special. I hope you can enjoy the solitude this upcoming week. :)
