Look who came to visit

When we visited Caleb, Kate and Jamie last week, Jamie and I saw a picture of a Luna moth in a field guide and I was telling him how unusual and special it is to see one, and how I've only seen one once -- years ago on the farm.  Then today we arrived at the lake and discovered that we had left an outside light on and that two Luna moths were clinging to the wall near it.  Here's one of them.  So beautiful!

A weekend visit

Saturday was a beautiful day for a visit with Jamie, Great Murphy and Caleb at Look Park.

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.
