Five Generations of Girls

We leave with the U-Haul for Spokane in two more days. Then Dee and Riley leave our home for Pittsburgh next Thursday, fly to Spokane next Sunday. This was our last chance to get a five generation picture of the girls. Even if Brandon, Dee and Riley get back home for Christmas, we aren't sure if Grandma will still be around. So this is my Grandma, the great-great-grandmother of Riley, Riley, of course, sitting on her lap. My mother on the left, me, and Diana. We never thought this picture would ever be possible. I have two brothers, two sons, and until May 30, two grandsons. Grandma is not doing well at all, so we were so happy to be able to take Riley to her in the nursing home for her to hold. Grandma doesn't like her picture taken, but she was very willing to cooperate on this one. It was very sweet.

Look at these two beautiful girls, 93 years apart, looking at each other. Such a precious moment.
Great-great Grandpa loves babies, even though we had to remind him that this was his great-great grand-daughter. And he couldn't remember her name. But this didn't stop him from singing every song he knew to her. Very loud I might add. Nobody minded. You can't help but smile with tears in your eyes.

I realize how lucky I am and I'm thankful for such a blessed family.

I am cleaning and packing today. We pick up and load the U-Haul tomorrow. My Bob and I truck it on out of here Sunday morning. I will see my beautiful baby next Sunday in Spokane and then have to leave my son and his family next Monday morning. Too hard to think about.

If I don't get a chance to get on a computer before then, I'll cry on all your shoulders after July 27th.
