Painting, Traveling, and Celebrating

Painting, as usual, but also doing a bit of traveling to our Grandson's Hartwick College graduation where he graduated magna cum laude and with departmental honors - he majored in both biology and chemistry! It was also a family reunion, with all the grandchildren and twin great-grands in attendance.

This is our grandson with his parents, our son and his wife.

Here are the girls playing on the practice track with other pre-schoolers during the 3 hour long, outdoor graduation ceremonies.

The scenery in upstate New York is similar to the mountainous regions of central Pennsylvania - however they have lakes, which we do not have. We have creeks, streams, and a few rivers, but very few lakes of any size whatever in the state.

We stayed at Lake House Lodge in Richfield Springs, NY - a somewhat primitive establishment, originally built in 1834. I think the last room renovations may have been in the 1940-50's! But, as you can see below, the spot was incredibly beautiful and a great place for a family reunion. By the way, the geese had 15 goslings trailing between and behind them!

Everywhere you looked, there were glorious nature scenes to enjoy!

As you can see, the youngest generation had a delightful time and entertained the rest of us. Never a dull moment!

There was Miss Neat and Tidy eating her ice cream quite delicately. And there was Miss Enthusiastic eating hers with great gusto. Not a drop was left behind, I assure you!

Now we're back home again, but looking forward to a Memorial Day Weekend visit from the twins and their mom.
