Yes I have been away for a while but for a good reason. My oldest son graduated from Basic Training and I went to watch him (only 4 states away) but it was a long trip and a great one cause I got to spend some time with him before he had to leave for his AIT. I got some crocheting done on the way there and back (when I wasn't driving) and in the evening in the hotel room. I have some pics I will share later, I still have to get them on the computer. I have a lot of granny squares to share too. I've been keeping up with my GAD. And of course I'll post a few pics of my sons. I really didn't get a lot of pics of where we were (and it was beautiful) but our days were filled with spending time with him.
