Our trip to New York

We had a fabulous trip to New York. Here are just 5 of the 487 pictures we took!!

Hubbie has a small obsession with airplanes which he is passing onto the girls! Love really enjoyed watching the action around our airplane.
This was the whole purpose of the trip: Daddy and Love picking raspberries together! She loved it. She was forever asking to go pick raspberries. She never had much to show for her work though, except a few red stains around her mouth and on her shirt!!!

This is how Smiles kept cool in the 90 degree weather. She loves the water. She really loves to have the water sprayed in her face! No joke, she would sputter then sign "more"!

Love decided to cool off the plants. Grandma was pleased with that, especially when Love watered the tomatoes!!

Here is Daddy and Love picking blueberries. Smiles joined us once and I could not pick them fast enough for her! She kept reaching for the berries on the bushes.
It was a once in a lifetime trip. I am so thankful we went. His grandmother is doing reasonably well. She has lots of work and decisions ahead of her as she cleans out the house and prepares to sell it. She still talks about his grandfather in the present tense sometimes, and she uses "we" a lot too. It was very hard to leave her there alone. But we know she is not really alone, she has a great support system. Family is close by and they keep good tabs on her. As we drove away, Hubbie and I both felt we were forgetting something. I finally decided it was Grandmother!

This brings back some memories for me. My step-grandfather (my mom's mom's husband) had black raspberry bushes in his backyard in Pennsylvania and we'd go over all the time to pick and eat them, and make shortcake and pie from them.
