Good for the Heart

It's always good to have time with extended family.

This past weekend, we headed to Arizona...Pat and the kids stayed with his parents in Kearny while I headed into Mesa to visit with my dear friend Susan who is battling cancer.

These are some of the pictures I took before we headed home Sunday afternoon.
Grandma and Lucy

Stephen and Granddad

Pat and his parents

Pat and his mom

Quick snapshot of me taken by Pat after I took all of the other pictures

Since when has P's beard been BLACK? Is it just the lighting or is that boy dying his beard?

Kristine said...

Maybe it's a combination of the black shirt he's wearing and the natural light...or maybe something is just wrong with your eyes, and you've not been seeing it right for quite a while.

What beautiful pictures! I treasure the pictures I have with my grandparents, most of them aren't living anymore. I am sure your kids will treasure the memories of visiting them too! I hope your friend is coping well with her situation. It's great you got to spend some time with her.

How sweet the smiles and even sweeter the memories of the weekend. You should have the kids write a memory of "The Best Part of the Weekend", and then put them in your journal! How did the cookies turn out?

Maybe it is a lack of contrast with his head hair... I just don't have anything to compare it to!

Hi Kristine -- I'm not sure if we have met in SJ or not but thanks for the advice you posted on my blog. I will have to get that book for sure it sounds like it has some great advice.

I'm sorry you have a friend with cancer it is such a devastating disease. I wish her luck!
