Family Trees

I was supposed to go to Washington DC this weekend on a train, returning Monday.  Due to Frankenstorm I cancelled my plans.  My sister and her husband were kind enough to do the research I had hoped to do.  This is the stone in Mt. Olivet Cemetery marking the family plot for Andrew J. Joyce, my great great grandfather.  More photos will be forthcoming.  Thanks, J & D.

 A different kind of Family Tree... with monkeys in it!!

This shot took forever to get right.  My shutter is slow and the first four shots showed Theo on the ground.

Happy 30th B-Day

 This is the cake Josh ordered and it was DELICIOUS with a raspberry filling and whipped cream frosting.  It is Carol's specialty!!

A flock of 13 wild turkeys joined the festivities right outside the kitchen window!!

Powerful, Filling Mystery Food

Toasted jalapeno/cheddar bagel with melted cheddar cheese, kimchee, and sliced apples!!  Definitely a food truck item!!

A's new bed

a distorted view taken at the consignment shop.  It's really much nicer than the photo.

Halloween Party

Even before arriving home from the airport I stopped at a Halloween Party.  Look how long A's hair has gotten!!! 

Flying Home

 leaving  Chicago's O'Hare Airport .... heading home
 Providence & Narragansett Bay
How appropriate is this 1,000th post to my six year old blog.... and it documents my return to the place I love!!  ( I couldn't believe I was taking pictures out the tiny airplane windows... but it was a gorgeous day and I was happy.)
