Oh, we got company coming...

... up the road! Nothing like getting ready for a houseful of family to keep you on your toes. Beds to make, bathrooms to scrub, meals to plan, and groceries to buy. Yeah buddy!

Number 1 son, daughter-in-law, two grandsons, and two nephews-in-law are coming Saturday for a week. Yay! The nephews haven't traveled too much and have never been to our nation's capital so it'll be into DC for some sightseeing. Too bad they've just missed the Cherry Blossom Festival, that's always so pretty, but last night's stormy winds probably decimated whatever blossoms were left anyway - seems to happen every year. One of the boys is a Civil War buff and the grandsons like it too, so a trip to Gettysburg is on the list too.

Fun stuff!

I used to live in Maryland when I was a child and we took several trips to D.C. I hope you have a wonderful time with your family :)

take care,

Oh, man! You made me want to come visit you! You have so many neat-o plans for your guests!! Have a GROOVY time with all. Even all the Jimmys!!

I went to Andersonville back in the '70s and loved it. I was a rotten History student in school, and being there gave History such a new and interesting perspective!! I'd love to go to D.C. and Gettysburg.

Take plenty of pics and have a lotta fun!
