What's a visit from Grammie and Papa without a field trip? So off we go to St. Jacob's for trains and quilts and pretty shops and ice cream and a two-mile hike with kids. We had a really nice afternoon, all family-togetherness and such, and that's what makes it so difficult when Grammie and Papa have to go home. Joe takes it especially hard and there were so many tears at the end of this visit. He cries, which makes me cry, and now we're counting down to July when we get to see them again.
