Too Far

We went to Missouri for a long Memorial Day weekend. It is a long, long drive. Along the way I found my self saying "this is just too far" thats the adult version of "are we there yet?" But really 485 miles to get there is defiantly not too far to meet...
Connor our new grandson.
Nor is it too far to be able to snuggle him in my arms.On the ride home Jon couldn't leave Missouri with out making a last stop on the Missouri-Iowa boarder at a huge fireworks warehouse....he may have gone too far this time, I'm quite certain he will get his butt tossed in jail when he lights them all off. A friend lent us her touring van, and let me tell you it was a really, really, sweet ride, complete with a sheep skin rug for me to sit on. We have not had a full sized van for years, just minivans, with alot less leg room, cargo space, and space between the seats, this was a treat to say the least.
Over 1200 miles round trip was not too far......but the space between us was!

Distance has no meaning when there's a baby involved! blessings, marlene

Oh, what a sweet, sweet baby boy! Snuggling him would be worth driving any distance. I'm glad you had a nice trip. Was it hard to leave Connor behind?

Congrats on that sweet little grand-boy! Very much worth the distance, I'd say :) Sweet post! -Tammy

You are right, it is never to far to drive to see family.

My favorite is closing caption. It warms my heart that after 24 years, you and your man are still so in love.

By the way, that grandbaby is precious, positively the sweetest baby I've seen since Eli was born!

Such a darling little baby! Congratulations!
I loved your post on Whooo's Your Mama! That owl lamp is SO COOL!!!!
Those childless women who doted on you and your kids reminds me of my great-Aunt Velma--she wasn't childless- she had a son, but no grandchildren for years! She treated us like surrogate granddaughters, and although she lived far away in San Francisco, she sent us lovely gifts and her infrequent visits were momentous events! Thanks for reminding me of her--I'll post on her soon with pics! V.
