Chillaxin' with Uncle Keaton

This totally cracked Emma up! Of course, Keaton is so tall that he hardly needed to jump. Still, Emma squealed with delight!
Here they are being sweet...
...and, of course, being silly!
This is my favorite photo of the day. Keaton pretended to get stuck on the slide, so Emma decided to give him a hand!
Life is sweet, indeed!

Hilton Head Island

I became so busy with Brennan's college graduation that I forgot to post these photos from Hilton Head Island. It was a working trip for Rick, and a lay-on-the beach trip for me. Hilton Head is definitely worth a visit!

We stayed at the Marriott. This sandcastle is in the lobby.
This was the view from our room.
The first night we were there, we went to a waterside shopping area and restaurant. We sat on the water's edge and listened to some fabulous music!
The restaurant was adjacent to a dock. Rick wants this to be his "other car." LOL
I caught a few great sunset photos.
The second day Rick was stuck indoors working all day. I claimed my chaise lounge at 8:45 AM and relaxed on it until 4:30! Did a bit of swimming and a lot of listening to my iPod. Here are the views I enjoyed.
Unfortunately it poured~and I mean POURED~the next day. So while Rick worked, I curled up in a big, comfy chair in the lobby and read my nook all day. I could definitely get used to tagging along on his business trips!

Brennan and Professor Chris Hollot, Department Head for Electrical and Chemical Engineering. He made a point of meeting us~he wanted to tell us what a great man Brennan is, not just academically. Yes, this old, proud mama was moved to tears!
We celebrated at our favorite restaurant, Chloe's in Hudson, MA. Left to right: Rick, me, Anne (Rick's mom), Mike (Rick's brother), Barbara (Rick's sister), Susan (Mike's girlfriend), Allen (Barbara's husband), Jim (Anne's husband), Brittany, Brennan, and Keaton.
Two kids graduated from college, one to go!
Have great week!
