Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig..

We had a very nice visit to see our son and his little family this weekend, we just got home late last night. Its nice to be home, but we are going to miss the kids--especially the baby! It was truly a remarkable experience to hold our first grandchild. We gave the kids a little cash in a card and told them to go out for a movie and dinner and we babysat little Ruby for them. It didn't take them long to get ready with that opportunity handed to them! They have not been out. My daughter-in-law is used to being much more independant so it is difficult for her to be stuck at home with baby all day every day. She is not going to be a stay at home mom. She returns to work in a few weeks as her income is needed along with our son's to make ends meet. They are hoping that in the future he can find a way to bring in more so she can cut her hours to part time and be with Baby more. They have found an older woman at daughter in law's church who will be babysitting while she is at work.

Baby is beautiful! She's in motion much of the time however, a somewhat fussy little bundle who has been keeping both Mommy and Daddy pretty tired out. We kept our visit from getting too long so they could have time to rest and relax. Our hotel had tv and internet and a wonderful whirlpool tub--which I always take advantage of when I can. It also had a hiking trail we made some use of.

It was a wonderful experience all in all for us. We wish they lived closer however, as neither of us is keen on the 8 hour flights. But.. God knows. :)
