A much needed "Mini Escape" for Jan

A much needed "Mini Escape" for Jan....
Helen, Anna, Emily, Janet, Janice, Roger, & Emma
(guess Carla or Don is taking photo)

Before all the news began in September Jan & Rog had planned on spending about a month in Florida with her sister Janet & brother in law Don of course that all changed with the new schedule cancer brings.  You all know Jan doesn't like sitting still but missing out on a trip was driving her crazy--- which in turn drives Roger crazy.  This has been on her mind for awhile but with the holidays brought the reality and Jan wasn't gonna miss it all together.  So 2 days post treatment they packed up for a shortened Florida trip but enough to get rejuvenated & enjoy the 80° temps.  They got a nice surprise with a visit from nieces they don't get to see often enough Tom & Carla's crew live about an hour away and Helen & Emily were visiting them from South Carolina.  What a great treat to get to see them all!  Tom & Helen are the children of Jan & Janet's brother Albert and his wife Ann who still live in Pleasant Mount not far from their homestead.  Can't resist these old photos what great memories we all have being up there.  I'll have to dig deeper into photo archives to find a good one of Albert & Ann---next post.  While they enjoy their 80° I'm headed to Boston where it was 9° this morning!  I'll update this when I get back, their condo has wifi so keep those emails coming, and she'll enjoy some mail when she gets home.

A beautiful view from the house in every season.

The always busy pond on the west side of the property.
The trip down included cheese & cracker
party for the girls while they guys caught
up on their football.
