Tonight Rose and I are headed to New York to visit my Grandma Mary, Rose's great grandmother, at the Quinn family cottage on Canandaigua Lake. This will be Rose's first airplane ride! Unfortunately (or fortunately, I can't quite decide), it's a red-eye. And, definitely unfortunately, it includes a three hour lay-over in Newark, NJ at 5am. We're traveling sans Papa and we will miss him! But luckily, cousin Nellie has generously offered to fly with us and lend a helping hand. She's even offered to change diapers. What a sport! We hope for lots of sleep for all of us and minimal crying (for all of us).
I'm looking forward to spending time with my grandmother and introducing her to Rose. Rose and I are also excited to see Grandpa Barry and Nana Barbara!
Wish us safe and happy travels!
