Last weekend went something like this. . .

- later in the afternoon . . .our two kids. . .each with a wife. . .and each with one child. . .arrived.
- we helped schlep in all the stuff. . . and . . .
- at 6 pm walked to Harrison Burgers. . . .for burgers and fries.
- at 7 pm we all walked back to Harrison Resort. . .and put on our bathing apparel.
- had some wee person swimming therapy. . .for an hour. . ..and kissed the wee ones goodnight.
- went to the big people hot pool. . .and began therapy. . .until 11ish.
- Terry and I got up early .. .and walked to Miss Margaret's cafe for bagels and coffee.
- when we got back to our room. ..there were wee faces pressed against our patio door. . .awaiting entrance.
- went to the pools about 9 ish. . .and swam and enjoyed more therapy. . .until noonish.
- In the afternoon. . .the wee ones napped. . .and we went to the big people hot pool for additional therapy. . .until napping ceased .. .
- went to kids pool and enjoyed warm water therapy .. .until about dinner time.
- went to Harrison Pizza for . . . .pizza.

Every family has to find a tradition that is special and unique and something that will become more and more special as the children grow up.
