Uncle Nick and the Birthday Guests

by Pa Rock
Proud Father and Grandfather

My oldest, Nick, is turning forty-three today.   Nick's niece and nephew, Olive and Baby Sullivan, came down from the Kansas City area yesterday - with their parents - to help him celebrate.  This trip is the first opportunity that Nick and Sullivan have had to meet.  They seem to be good buddies.

Olive has had nice time running around the farm - collecting eggs, visiting the peacocks, watching the baby chickens playing in their pen, checking out the new baby ducks, and cavorting with Rosie and Riley.  Yesterday evening she got to go to Devil's Backbone and play in the river.  It is a place that she discovered last summer when she and her family spent several weeks here during the filming of Tatterdemalion.

Soon the Kansas City Macy's will be packing up and heading home - and the quiet will be deafening.  It is always fun to have grandchildren come for a visit!
