I had not seen my daughter, Susan (she's the 'baby' of the family and lives in New York) and Grandson Tighe for 18 months.
The two of them drove down to the Virginia Eastern Shore (1 1/2 hours shorter trip for her) to Granddaughter Brittanys house and a bunch of us spent some quality time together.
Tighe and Brittany's son, Dylan are cousins and big buddies although they live so far apart. And, there's 3 years difference in their ages.
Tighe is a 'city' guy, used to playing soccer, tennis, golf. The Eastern Shore where Dylan lives is 'another ballgame altogether'.
The guys (ages 10 and 13) went canoeing, boating, shot air guns and real rifles, drove all over the place in the golf cart, played chess and video games, chopped down bamboo with a machete, even fed some chickens that a friend had. Totally not city stuff. Tighe had a blast!
And, I got to enjoy Susan. What a week that was!! She left Saturday. I miss her already.
