Last Saturday we headed over to Jimmy and Jenetta’s house. Another highly anticipated day because it was see the granddaughters day.
I am amazed at the relationship that this family has. Let me introduce you.
You’ve already met Jenetta. Next is Liz (Jim’s ex-wife, mother of Jimmy), hidden behind the cup is Juliet and, of course, Bella.
This is Jessica (Jimmy’s ex-wife) with Juliet who is 7.
Madison really didn’t want her picture taken. She’s 12 going on 32.
Jimmy with Angel and Juliet.
Jimmy grilled hamburgers and hot dogs for everyone. Jim and Liz got a chance to reminisce and I had a chance to catch up on the girls and how Jessica was coping. It was a fantastic time.
We had to go back to the campground to take care of the girls. They really do think they need to eat and go out even when we’re busy visiting.
After taking care of them we headed back to Fredericksburg to meet up with Jim’s sister, Nancy, her hubby, Jack, and their daughter Patti. Patti and her Uncle Jim have always been really close.
It was so good to see them again. We are sure hoping to get together again before we leave Virginia. I hinted (very strongly) that Arizona would be a great pace for them to come visit sometime soon.

Then last night we were finally able to connect with my brother, Rob, and my niece, Meredith. Rob works for UPS and with the ten million Iphones that were sold, he had to work Saturday, Sunday, and his day off, Monday. He lives up near Manassa and drove down to meet us in Fredericksburg for a quick bite.

Meredith is a Sophomore this year and knows what she wants to be when she grows up – an Orthopedic Surgeon. I told Rob not to even think about retiring. He just groaned.
We met up with Rob and Meredith at Friendly’s Ice Cream Parlor. Jim had two wishes (besides seeing family) while here – seafood and a Jim Dandy. This is a Jim Dandy.
And this is Jim with his Jim Dandy. He will be eating a lot of salads and low carbs to make up for it.
We have had an awesome time with family and it sure does make every mile driven to get here worth it. We are going to have more family times when we get down to Roanoke.
