Rhode Island visit

This is my father-in-law
He is 93 years old
and from a French Canadian background.
We visited him this weekend.  We went in two groups, so not to tax him and ourselves too much.  We needed to see each other since my mother-in-law's passing.

Here are two generations, but really four generations apart.
A great-grand-father with his great-grandson.
The little one is 20 months old.

This was their first meeting.

This is outside the Navy Lodge in Newport, RI.  
The aircraft carrier is the USS Forrestal, no longer in service.
It was the view outside our window, just like that:

I do miss Rhode Island.  This is about 7 AM, and just gorgeous.  And who minds the cold with a view like that?

And we had breakfast at this NJ style diner in Newport.  We can only recommend it.
And below we were showing the little one the beach.  Still too cold to stay outside for long. 


  1. What a great thing to do for him...and your family. He looks to be in pretty good shape for 93! How is he doing? It's not that long since his wife passed. Does he live alone? sweet picture of him and the little one too.

    I agree with you on the view! How awesome to see the ship there too.

    Glad you had a good weekend and made it home safe. Have a good week Ruth..


  2. Is it not fantastic to blessed and see your great-grandchild? I still find it amazing.
