David and I are both only children and my Mom is the only grandparent that the girls have. Our family is SMALL, but we're so glad it includes David's Mom's sister, Anne. Adeline and Auntie Anne had an instant connection despite their almost eighty year age difference, and there is so much love and fun in the air when those two are together. It takes full day with a lot of car travel to go visit Anne and we always plan to do it once a month but then sickness and busy-ness and stuff needing to get done around the house and garden gets the better of us and then it's once again been way too long since we've gotten together. Vivian is finally starting to warm up to Auntie Anne. I hope they will have many years together to build their relationship.
Neither Adeline nor Auntie Anne are fans of posing for pictures, but Adeline told me on the trip up that she wanted me to take a picture of the two of them to put up in her bedroom. I saw them sitting on the steps of the woodshed and in just a couple of frames got some lovely shots that I think really capture something about the feelings they have for each other.
