Andy has been very busy these past few weeks. Since my last post about his visit, we went to Panera Bread for lunch where we made a new friend named Susan. You may know her from her blog, “Coming East.” I highly recommend her post, Stairstruck, which celebrates her lovely mountain vacation on a broken foot. (Please don’t tell her I told you about that.) She
is a has character!
After that, we were on the road for the better part of a week for our granddaughter’s graduation. He loved the hotel stays, coffee in the room,
He could barely contain himself when he learned we were going to visit the Sylvan Heights waterfowl park on the way home.
He enjoyed the backyard with the birds and squirrels, helping my hubby create a new feeding station for them,
and playing hide and seek. He never did tell me how he got into the hanging basket!
A very dear family friend returned from vacation with a gift for us–salt water taffy! Now, why didn’t I think of that?
Andy arrived here from visiting Judith and Lotte in New Zealand with a stash of jelly beans to tide him over, so we knew he had a sweet tooth. I packed some taffy in his bag so he’ll have something to munch on his way to visit Beth Ann in Iowa. Be sure to subscribe to her blog if you want to keep up with Andy’s travels. I hear they’ll be going to China soon! It’s a good thing he kept company with our granddaughter. She probably taught him some Mandarin. That’s been her foreign language of choice, and she’s going to China in August.
On Andy’s last day, we made one more trip to the beach. We didn’t stay long, a storm was rolling in; I’ll share those pictures with you tomorrow.
If you would like to host Andy and show him some of your favorite places, contact his mom, Lenore Diane, to schedule a visit! Trust me, you’ll hardly know he is around. He is the perfect house guest!
