Travis Luke Yoder

Welcome into our world little Travis Luke Yoder!
We love this little fellow so much already.
Our youngest son Timothy, Diana and their precious new wee one.

Last evening I made supper for them.  Diana asked if we would join them.  We took Grandma Yoder with us so she could hold her newest great-grandchild.
~ Four Generations ~

Jeremy and Cheryl joined us as well, anxious to see and hold this new nephew and cousin.

It was a quick trip for Jeremy and Cheryl.  They wanted to visit Ariel's grave before heading back to Baltimore. 
We had a little time to swing the boys before they headed out.

"Push me high Grandma!"

Last week Mark and I were able to take a 24 hour excursion.  For Christmas Mark bought us tickets to "Celtic Women", a concert in Baltimore.    After the concert we had  ~Bed-n-Breakfast~  with Jeremy's before heading over to Fort McHenry.    We both love history and wanted to see the fort where the Flag flew that Francis Scott Key was inspired to write our National Anthem.

This is the spot where the original flag was raised the  morning after the British retreated.  Since it was a windy day and calling for rain they flew a much smaller flag.  A guide told us the original would of been down to that first jut out piece.

On our way home we drove on down to Annapolis, MD and had lunch on the waters edge.

Also took in an hour boat ride before heading home.    What a wonderful little 24 hour excursion with my man.   Thanks honey for the great Christmas gift.

Fort McHenry has wonderful events - Flag Day, etc, with fireworks, bands, and fun things like that. There is also a Flag Museum in the city that is really interesting. I think it is at the house of the lady who sewed the flag - I bet you would find that interesting!

Love the 4-generation photo. Great Gramma Yoder looks so very pleased, along with all the rest... You can tell Max and Bo sure like the swing. You probably get tired of pushing long before they are finished swinging!

Congratulations on your new wee-one!! He is absolutely precious. I love the 4-generation picture -- what a treasure that is. I don't know how long it's been since I've been to Fort McHenry -- doubt John's ever been.
