Visit to Providence

Dad and I had a very pleasant visit to the Stevens home in Providence last weekend. The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed it very much. Thanks Chris, Herb, Kelly, Brett!

I think I'm going to need some help downloading photos - they are my nemesis, though I try.

Dad had fun golfing with Herb and Brett on Saturday. Chris, Kelly and I went to the birthplace of Gilbert Stuart, the Colonial portrait artist, and enjoyed a tour there. Then we checked out Kelly's girl scout troop, who were camping and canoeing nearby at one of the local scout camps. Next we went to Wickford, local very nice tourist-type town, and had a late lunch on a restaurant patio.

On Sunday Chris and I drove Brett to a meeting of his boy scout jamboree troop. They are planning a trip to a national jamboree in Virginia next summer. Kelly was working at her part-time job at Dave's Market, and there were 2 losing football games on the TV for Dad and Herb! We managed to find a yard sale in the neighborhood somehow and couldn't pass up a few good buys!

So those were most of the highlights. Our first visit to their new homestead. Love to all from Mom

I'm learning - and it is nice to see what's going on around the family and especially check the photos posted.

I enjoyed you album of photos from the Girl Scout trip to Block Island, Chris. Fantastic place.

Love, Mom
