Four Generations Strong

Not only is it a new experience for us to be grandparents and Anne and Jed to be parents, but the topper lately is seeing Wes' folks as GREAT grandparents. They came for a visit this past weekend to meet Miss Ellie.
It was so special to see them holding dear Ellie. I admit there were many flashbacks to the times they held Anne and John as little ones...they were about the same age as we are presently when we first introduced them to their first grandchild. Again we ask, "Where did the time go?"
Thank you so very much, E and M, for being brave about traveling here when we couldn't come there. We know that travel is harder with the passing of time. Thank you for climbing all those stairs to our place when an elevator would have been so much easier, but not possible with our City Nest. But most of all, thank you for the years and years of love you have given to all of us, and are now passing it on to the newest generation --- she's so lucky she could meet you!

Yes, G&G (GG&GG) Thanks for coming out here to see us and Ellie! You were so great to brave the train, the stairs, and the weather all to make it here to Chicago. So special to be with and spend time with you both!
