We spent last weekend in Gulfport celebrating Ronnie's Grandmother's 95th birthday. We had a great weekend with the family, especially since almost everyone was there (except two great-grandkids - Ashlee and Eva and one grandchild - Allison).
|MeeMee finally got to meet her first great-grandson ... Wyatt|
|MeeMee and all the grandchildren and great grandchildren who could be there|
While the focus of the day was supposed to be MeeMee, I think little Wyatt may have stolen the show ....

We spent Sunday afternoon with Ronnie's Uncle Charlie, Aunt Pat and Bianca (their granddaughter) boating, swimming and grilling (actually, Pat grilled while the rest of us played!) My children love going out on Charlie's boat ... they don't get to do this but a couple of times a year and it is always exciting to them. Charlie is a great sport and enjoys letting the kids drive the boat. The boys always look forward to their turn and this time, even LB took a turn ... though she wasn't as excited as the boys were.
MeeMee is the only great-grandparent that my children have left and I am thrilled that they got to celebrate her 95th birthday with her. I hope that this is something they will always remember and that they will know how important it is to take the time to get to know the older people in their lives who have so much to offer and yet are so often overlooked by young people.
