Over the river and through the woods to Grandmothers house I go!!  Tonight I am off for an adventure. I am taking an overnight train ride to go celebrate my Grandma's birthday in Rochester. Mom is flying up from the south and I'm riding across to country by train to be together.  The weekend will be spent in my Grandma's apartment with her parakeets cheerfully chirping, photos of Grandpa at 18 years old,  cheesecake making, hidden facts about my Mom I never knew, hugs, Grandma's cooking and  birthday parties with the rest of the fam.  I hope to get both Mom and Grandma giggling at the same time, they have they same laugh.  Family is important folks, I think that is all I have to say in this post.  Have a wonderful weekend with whomever family is to you.
