Sydney managed to get through her cold with a happy face and plenty of energy to spare. Mom and Grandma, on the other hand, were a bit more miserable.
My going away present from Son John yesterday morning was a fresh box of Kleenex for the trip.
One of Sydney's favorite pastimes is sitting at her little table with paper and Crayons.
I never thought of giving my kids Crayons at such an early age. But, as John was nice enough to point out, they didn't have the wonderful big fat washable Crayons back then. (Or was it Anne who pointed it out? The cold muddled my mind more than usual.)
Her parents have done a great job of teaching Sydney to keep the coloring on the table. We enjoyed many hours of colorful doodling together.
Saturday evening the sky was spectacular and John reminded me to go out and get an Idaho Saturday Sky picture.
All in all, it was a nice visit. It was worth getting a cold to spend some precious, rare time with Granddaughter Sydney at nineteen months. By the time I see her again in the spring, she'll be two.
I'm so thankful for digital cameras and John's blog to fill in the gaps.
