Wee Marius was born on January 27 and a week later poor Hillary had to have an appendectomy. Now it came time for his blessing which meant Robert and I would travel to Cape Coral, FL to play with the New Hatch Batch. We flew out of Cleveland on Monday, March 10 and into Ft. Myers. It was a lovely trip even tho I was imagining all sorts of horrible endings to the flight. I made certain all my Visiting Teaching was completed, even giving the message to Jan Warren who kindly drove us to Cleveland Hopkins Airport. Hillary and the kids met us at the airport and drove us to their lovely home. The above video shows us driving out of the community. It was a wonder to see a lovely climate when back home in NE Ohio they would be suffering another mini polar vortex and as I watched the news release of various accidents, I actually felt guilty for being in warm and sunny Florida. There were just too many things to see and do, grands to play with, to spend too much time in guilt...especially since all too soon we'd be returning.
This video actually occurred on our first day with them. Rob has always had a fascination with fans and now vacuums. Add Robert to this and let me tell you, it was a lark!
Our trip was wonderful and we are grateful that we were wanted and will now start to save for the next trip.
