We visited my oldest, Adam, and my Daughter in Law, Alicia, and granddaughter, Ava, in March of this year. A long, long trip to Maui. We spent a little over a week there and got to see where they lived and get to know Ava a little. We have skyped but it certainly isn't like a visit.
Adam paints and sells on Etsy as well as locally in Maui... www.studioserra.etsy.com. I fell in love with some of his tiny paintings and bought 3 of them to take back with us to Upstate New York. Just got them framed and home the other day and I love the way they look!!! A vacation for the eyes!
Well...maybe we can go back next year!!! Though we are having a wedding next summer for Alex and Victoria so they will come out for that...Maui is way too far away. sigh.
