a rare family post....

I blog it all, right?  A lot anyway.  Not much family.
My niece, and I only have the one, grew up in the midwest, graduated from Harvard and is studying to be an adolescent psychologist ...I don't see her too often as she has moved to the Left Coast, but she visited my parents' house down the road from ours.... she is a sweetie pie.  Those messed up kids of the future receiving her care will be damn lucky :)
She had a chance to do COUNTRY thangs....like canoe...my parents have a rather schweet pond...and that is how you pick all the blackberries the little animals didn't eat:  you sit in the canoe and pick blackberries! More on that tomorrow.....


In other news, you will notice that I was babysitting Yogi yesterday...you will also notice there are no pictures of him playing with Penny.  The 2 of them were like "ooof, its too hot!" but then Yogi was like "I wanna see Spike..." and he came inside to play with the cat.....

You sure lucked out in the niece department....smart and pretty too.
Does Penny get in the canoe? And Spike obviously takes part in Bad-O-Cat!

Ah, canoeing...what a peaceful pastime...and berries to boot...so glad to meet your neice...she will have a busy fulfilling job I'm thinking!

Such a pretty girl! You never let on that your parents lived close by, how lucky for you and them.

How awesome that she came to visit you; Uncle Gary!
She is cute AND smart; a great combo.
My cousin just started at Harvard this week!!

I love the action shot of Yogi!

Uhhhh....that was supposed to be Bag-O-Cat! Although the misspell may be appropriate.
