Grand escape!

On the plane

Sorry for the delay since my last post.

Vivian has been doing so well that she and I flew to Jackson Hole to visit my parents for several days. On so many levels it was wonderful to get away! Vivian was perfect on the flights there and back. I didn't take a lot of pictures because our visit was very low key, but we had a wonderful time.

Landing in Jackson Hole - the world's most beautiful airport!

Vivian on an evening stroll with my parents with the majestic Grand Tetons as a backdrop

Of course Baby Sarah accompanied Vivian on her walk

Stopping to get a rock out of her shoe (I guess Spot went along for the walk too)

After Biba washed and dried her hair, Vivian commented, "Daddy will love my shiny hair"

Coloring at the dining room table

My mom and I shopped at the Mountain Artists Fair in town. We bought some really cute makeup bags from this darling vendor

I got this wrap in black to wear to an upcoming wedding in Colorado

The amazing view from my parents' front deck

The bear guarding my mom's pretty flowers

Two Vivians out for another evening walk (yes, one of them - not my mom - is wearing her beloved Rudolph nightgown!)

Biba teaches Vivian to blow a huge dandelion

Looking back at my parents' house

My dad's barn

Returning from their stroll

At the airport heading home

Good for you! Both you and Vivian needed this little break. Glad you were able to get away. How is your son enjoying college life?

So glad to see Vivian traveling and enjoying time with her grandparents. I bet this trip was Chicken Soup for the soul! Their home and the setting is gorgeous.
