Leaving, But We’ll Be Back

Heading for home….

After 10 days with our kids and little LV, we’re actually going through a little bit of withdrawal.  We’d become accustomed to the idea of our children having grown up and moved on with their lives, but now with a new baby and another one coming, we want nothing more than to hold them all close and not let go.

But there was lots of time holding, feeding, playing with LV:238

And I went with DDIL-K for her US – a real-time glimpse of Eli, but still no idea whether it’s a he or a she.  Only 10 weeks to wait until we know.

There was also a baby shower for DDIL-K, lots of fun and amazingly coordinated gifts received:


Grizz did some work on the baby room closet, and we helped put together a new filing cabinet so ‘stuff’ could be moved out of the baby room so that ‘baby stuff’ can be moved in and set up.

We did take time for some touring around and visited The Saskatoon Farm, which is so much more than just a saskatoon farm.  They have a gift store, bakery, art gallery, farmer’s market, restaurant, plant nursery, as well as u-pick berries and fruits in season.  And the best saskatoon berry pies ever!

And the view over the Old Man and Bow Rivers is spectacular:165

Before leaving, we booked our next stay in about a month.

Happiness is……family and grandchildren!                   Blessings, Peg


  1. You're right..happiness is grandchildren and family. Mine are all grown up now but I look back on the growing up years and treasure them. They go by too fast!

  2. My grand babes just moved to Alberta! I'm so sad, but happy for them that my son has work doing what he enjoys. Enjoy the rest of your trip and watch out for bikers ; )
