Burning off energy.
Saying goodbye at the airport.
Another new topper for Rojo.
A day at the North Carolina Zoo
For 10 years, we do a family picture here.
How do you occupy grand kids? Wash cars……
and play with cars.
Steph and I escaped to do a hike, we visited the Thornburg House on the way where I photographed Sam for her senior pics, I asked Steph to pose by the windows, all she could do was laugh and say, “I don’t pose.”
Deer eat grass in the water in front of our campsite
The grand kids like the Flippac
As my mom prepares, she asked her vet for a box they use for pets, so she can use it after she is cremated. Funny story, while at the funeral home, she kept saying, she wants to be cremated in a cardboard box, the elderly woman helping her kept cringing while correcting my mom, calling it an alternative cremation vessel (or something like that)
My brother took the boat across Lake Murray to join us for dinner so a sunset cruise was called for.
Hell of the North Day. My favorite one day classic, Paris Roubaix is this morning so I got an early ride in on the dirt roads in South Carolina.
I was just turning onto every dirt road I passed, when all of a sudden I see a single cobble (paving stone) in the road…. very Paris Roubaix.
After Easter Dinner with my mom and Lynn and some chores, Lynn, Kodak and I returned to Peachtree Rock Heritage Preserve for a hike and so we could find Small Peachtree Rock (I took a wrong trail yesterday)
Lynn, Kodak and me went for a hike in Peachtree Rock Heritage Preserve, we got a late start, and took a side trail so Kodak could get some off lease time.
and of course, you have to visit the only waterfall in the Midlands in South Carolina.
I have not done a good job documenting this week.
My mom has a strict no pictures of her policy and the internet, but today was needed for history.
Today was her first dose of Chemo to treat small cell lung cancer. (this isn’t the actual med, just an IV)
Another quick hike in Shealy Nature Preserve
Two days ago I said there isn’t great water access, and I explained that to Kodak, but she waded through the muck to find open water
She was pleased with herself!
