We were a cozy group of four for Thanksgiving.  Tim and Megan joined me in climbing up to Humpback Rocks in the morning, their first time there.  Lots of fellow hikers, but the rocks and the views are always spectacular.

Two weeks later, we headed up to Pennsylvania to celebrate our grand-daughter Paityn’s birthday with Dave, Sue and brother Cody.  John came up from Maryland as well.  Both kids were adorable, and it was great to have an extended period of time with them and their parents, since we don’t travel much these days.



We stopped off in Maryland on the way back to see Sylvia (now a high school senior and recently accepted by Harvard!) perform in the Montgomery County Youth Orchestra concert.  Tim and Megan joined us.  Below: a picture of Sylvia from afar, and family spectators.
