Taking a little detour from the Italy travelogue to bring you breaking news from Grandparents’ Day in the OC. So much fun for me and the CE to be with the OC fam and get a peek inside the world of first and third grade. Very good for the soul (if not the lower back) to settle into one of those Lilliputian classroom chairs and see things from Evie and Viv’s perspective.
Next to being a proud grandpa, the CE loves taking a turn as commodore of the Duffy boat. We spent an idyllic afternoon with Tina and the girls cruising Newport Harbor and wondering how many times we might need to win the lottery in order to live there.
We also spent an evening at home with the family and were treated in turn to a game of charades, a gymnastics performance and some quality time with Miss Caleigh, who is talking up a storm. Two is the new five in her world!
For the grand finale we were treated to a dockside seat to the annual Newport Beach boat parade. Such a special time for us in the OC!
