Guess who came to dinner??

 Memorable Automobiles from The Past:

This 1992 Ford Ranger was new when Grandson and now daddy Matthew Dillon Darnell was born.

For today:

Earlier on our return to North Carolina we had a chance to see  Jack Jr’s family (Here on the East Coast) at Jude’s Birthday. We enjoyed the time with them. They are always a pleasure to see and enjoy. We met at Josh & Megan’s house.

BUT one thing after another has kept us from meeting Jack Wiley, the latest addition to our extended family. He is the number 12 for Great-Grand's. He lives about a mile from us. But colds, Covid exposure, dog bites and I don’t know what all has kept us from meeting the big dude (born 8 lbs).  I was beginning to think we would meet him when he entered college. He will probably attend East Carolina since his mama and dad did.

Uncle Luke even came over.

Proud grandma Corinne looking over at Great grandma Sherry holding jack.

BUT yep He finally drove over bringing his family. He weathered the hugs, oooz and ahhhhs of the family. His big brother Maverick is proud of his little brother.

It was so good and such a pleasure to have them over. Sherry fixed Spaghetti. WE had a great time.

Sherry used that time to get her favorite hair stylist, Sherece, her only granddaughter, to do her hair after dinner.

So yep, we finally got to see and meet another super Great Grand, he is about 4 weeks old now and sweet as sugar and BIG. 

Oh yeah, and it was so sweet to see how big Cousin Stella entertains and takes care of Maverick.

Matt and Kiersten are good parents. Matt is working from home (he works for Coca Cola), and is able to give Kiersten a little help during the day.

Notice the dining room table unused with 8-10 people here. The short breakfast bar lends itself to visiting. We ate in shifts anyway. with Jack Wiley being held by Grandma

Kiersten finally got her baby back.

Wonderful photos, Sherry looks awesome. All little treasures you have there, you must be so proud of them. Stella is beauty queen material! Love from Chobee

What a cutie! He is a big one! Your whole family is good looking. I bet Sherry didn't want to let go of that baby.
And that spaghetti looks delicious!

Hugs from here

What a precious boy! ... And he looks so chill, happy in Sherry's arms. Wow, I can't believe how grown up Stella's becoming.
That must have felt pretty good having everyone over. Thank you for sharing them with us!

Thank you for visiting my blog and for your comments. I have left a reply :-) I have meanwhile been browsing through your blog and I surmise you both are ardent travellers and have been near and far quite a lot. I am so glad you enjoyed visiting Alicante. Did you visit any other part of Spain?
I gather from your lovely family photos that you have a large family and grandchildren too.
I have just the one grand-child and there will be no more but I am banking on that there will be great-grandchildren in the near future and I plan to be around for that. keep well Amanda :-)
