And by great, I mean mom’s first great grandchild whom we visited this afternoon in Long Beach.¬†This was my (the great aunt) and great great Aunt Ellie’s first meet up with River, who is now seven weeks old! (Keeping up?)

River was a bit dubious at first, but warmed right up.


I got to take him for a little spin! Here’s a picture¬†John took and texted to me this evening. It was a sublime few moments until he decided he wasn’t having as much fun as I was, at which point I passed him back to Alexis.


Here’re the darling new parents–all a-glow–and a tired little guy.


Great visit. Great kid. Great new parents. Greats all around.

And earlier this afternoon, Mom and I had a great lunch with Aunt Ellie at the Boathouse at the marina.


They’ve been sisters-in-law a long time!

Great ones, at that.

I love you, too, Jim! Your handiness and cleverness know no bounds.
