My trip to Florida last week went really well. I enjoyed three full days with my parents and also had visits with both my sisters and two nieces and two of their kids too. When kids I knew as babies have kids, I guess that means something dramatic about my age but I’m not quite sure what. They look pretty good in this pic. Dad has a list of ailments but is hanging in there at nearly age 83.
Mom wanted me to be sure to take a pic of her Grandma King who was 80 in the photo below back in the 1940s. It was interesting to hear my folks retell some stories that go decades back. I doubt I’ll be able to remember the stories but I hope I can.
Beth did the carving but Dayton hopped around and jabbered about the whole fantastical experience of a pumpkin-carving. He didn’t remember ever seeing this done in person. I thought he was going to do it, but it was a thick pumpkin and the cutting was a bit challenging, I guess.
