Jamie wasn't feeling all that well, but he was game, at first, and excited about a ride on the train . . .
. . . at least in theory. In reality, some doubts set in.
But not for Great Murphy! She, of course, loved every bit of it: the train ride, a picnic lunch,
and the time with her family. Jamie warmed to it, too.
But he wore out fast that afternoon, suffered through a long, uncomfortable car ride home, and slept through the rest of the afternoon and a good part of the evening . . . and woke up Sunday morning feeling much better.
Bears are always a comfort
. . . even in boxes . . .
and there was lots of serious playing to do.
Looking back, it was a great visit. Wish we didn't have to say goodbye.
