On Saturday my grandson Caleb and his wife Lauryth arrived here (Baltimore) from Seattle for a three-day visit. Turn on your speakers to enjoy the videos.
They were married in August but I, of course, was unable to travel to Seattle to be there. Having them come here was even better because if I had been at the wedding, there would not have been the opportunities for conversation we had here.
At my request they danced their wedding dance for me.
Then they danced two more dances–a salsa
and a cha cha.
And before we quit, they jammed with me.
We had dinner at my son Michael’s home on Sunday with some of the family who were able to make it. Unfortunately, the flu kept several members at home.

Our friend Esther gave us a gift of dried fruits and nuts which we enjoyed Monday evening. Afterwards, I showed Caleb and Lauryth some of my recent needlework.

On Tuesday morning I brought out all the photographs I have of Caleb since his birth and had a good time sharing them and reminiscing about the times Caleb spent with me while he was growing up. We reviewed them in the guest room where they were staying.
They liked the guest room here at Charlestown, said Sunday brunch and breakfast in dining rooms were outstanding, and declared it a fine place to stay. Now they are back home in Seattle. I am one happy grandmother!
